Leonardo da Vinci – Sanguine Self Portrait

Next Spring and Summer Accademia del Giglio will organize a Sanguine and charcoal drawing workshop in Florence on the following dates:

July 8th – 12th  2013
August 12th – 16th 2013
September 30th – October 4th 2013

A full immersion in the ancient technique of sanguine and charcoal, a voyage of discovery of the renaissance drawing, from Botticelli to Leonardo, from Michelangelo to Raffaello.

Participants who start from scratch will study the fundamentals of anatomy and will practise drawing proportions both of a body and of a face on a paper sheet. The more skilled students will on the contrary have the opportunity to acquire this traditional technique and perfetc it at their best, by polishing their style and experimenting the potentialities of this long-established art.

Two life models and copies of classical drawings will be available throughout the workshop. Students will focus especially on the effect of light and shade (“the chiaroscuro”) as well as on gradations and nuances. The lessons will be integrated with conversations on art history. At the end of the course participants will be awarded a certificate of attendance.

Spoken languages: Italian and English.
Duration: 5 days
Total amount of hours: 30
Schedule: morning and afternoon, Monday through Friday.
Maximum number of students per class: 8.
