Life-drawing in Florence – Summer workshops 2013

lifedrawing2Next Spring and Summer Accademia del Giglio will organize Life-drawing workshops on the following dates:

July 1st – 5th 2013
August 19th – 23rd 2013

An in-deep study of the human body.

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: quick poses will aim at teaching the sketch technique while longer poses will intend to develop the study of anatomy and of shades as well as the student’s observation abilities.

No specific artistic skills or background are required.

The workshop has a duration of 5 days, from Monday to Friday, for a total amount of 30 hours of tuition: it includes 4 hours a day of living models.
