Pictures from March 2012 Art classes

Art classes: Drawing and Painting techniques at Accademia del Giglio, Florence, Italy. The complete course in Art is divided into 9 units (from unit A to unit I) and lasts 9 months. Students are however welcome to attend specific parts of the course (minimum 1 week).

All of our teachers are highly qualified and experts in the various disciplines and techniques such as classical drawing, oil painting, watercolour and fresco.

Intensive seminars of Fine Arts are offered throughout the year on specific dates. Art workshops normally run on a weekly basis both in the morning and in the afternoon, from Monday to Friday. Each programme consists of 30-32 hours of lessons, which take place either in our fully equipped Art studio or outside in the heart of Florence.

Here is the list of the subjects that are taught in our seminars:

Life Drawing
Trompe l’oeil
Portrait and Self-portrait
Sketchbook in Florence and landscape
Sanguine drawing and other classical drawing techniques

Since 1995 all our courses have taken place in the school premises and have been held by our qualified and experienced teaching staff. We are not a school selling courses which afterwards other schools or institutes take charge of. That is why we offer only a selected choice of courses, whose programmes and schedule have been tested and improved throughout these years.

During our classes students can learn and develop various art disciplines: for example they can choose to discover the fundamentals of the portrait and its secrets, they can apply themselves to draw from models posing in the nude, they can create a sketchbook of the historic Florence, they can dedicate to focus on the effect of light and shade in a still life, or they can even try to experience more unusual techniques, such as trompe-l’oeil or linoleumgraphy.

All our classes are made up of 7-8 students so as to facilitate the learning process and ensure that focus is placed on the learning requirements of the individual student, and on helping him/her to overcome any difficulties in a friendly environment, whilst the range of courses on offer allows the student to adapt the programme to their individual needs. That is why our classes are open both to Art novices and to experienced artists and professionals who want to improve one or more techniques and whose passion is Fine Arts.

Art classes are held both in English and in Italian in our fully equipped studio, which is located in the heart of Florence, a few steps from the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery. Some lessons may also take place outdoors, in the squares and streets of the city. Most of the courses run on weekdays in the afternoon, but intensive workshops and seminars may be also held in the morning or over the week-ends.
