Art Seminars in Florence: winter 2011/2012. Life Drawing, Portrait and Fresco techniques

Art Seminars and Workshops during next winter 2011/2012 offered by Accademia del Giglio, Art school in Florence. Each workshop lasts 5 days for a total of 30 hours of lessons.

Trompe l’oeil Seminar
During this course students will be introduced to the study and analysis of the most celebrated artworks, by showing them the mastery and expertise in this technique of some famous painters. Afterwards each student will put into practice what he/she has learnt by creating his/her own trompe l’oeil work. Consequently, the students’ task will be challenging: they will have to take into account the natural size of the objects, make use of the perspective theories, consider the position of the observer towards the fictitious space, as well as create a tridimensional effect through the use of lights and shades.

17 – 21 October 2011
23 – 27 January 2012

Life Drawing Seminars
This course deals with visual understanding by direct observation of the human body and it includes the acquisition of basic notions of anatomy as well as the methodology used to draw bodies and faces. Students will practice with the main drawing tools, i.e. graphite, charcoal, sanguine, pen-and-ink, pastel crayon. It is possible to combine the study of the drawing with the colour techniques such as oil or acrylic. On every session students will draw from either female or male models posing in the nude.

The Portrait and Self-portrait Seminar
This course is mainly an intensive study of the physiognomy. Through making rapid strokes in pencil (or charcoal) students will learn how to portray the essential features of a human face, and through more elaborate drawings they will focus on details, on the effect of light and shade (“the chiaroscuro”), as well as on the psychological value of facial expression. Colour techniques will be then taught by using either pastel or oil or also acrylic. Students will acquire good skills and abilities for painting the shades of complexion, the position of hands and the glittering of the eyes. Part of the workshop can also be dedicated to the self-portrait.

The intensive Fresco Seminar
The most peculiar quality of the fresco painting lies undoubtedly in its making: the pigment – a natural material – is laid on a fresh plaster several times in a short lapse of time, and through a cohesion process it fixes itself in the plaster, creating warm and subtle tones. During the workshop the students will follow the essential steps to making a fresco: for example they will learn how to prepare the “arriccio” (the preliminary layer of plaster spread on the tile), the cardboard for the sinopia and the use of the pigments.

Combined Art workshop
Studying the technique you like… in the dates you prefer. This is an open Art workshop, which allows you to combine 2 hours of private tuition in the morning with the lessons of the group course held in the afternoon. You can decide to focus on one or two techniques during the private lessons (i.e.: sanguine and charcoal drawing, watercolour, tempera, acrylic, oil glazing, etc.) and then either continue to study them in the core class or on the contrary switch to different artistic techniques always with the help of the teacher.
