Our Florence school offers 1, 2 or more weeks drawing courses. You can book a 24, 48, 72 or 96 hour course and distribute your hours along the number of weeks of your choice. This course is individual and it is taught in Italian . Since lessons are individual, the programme can be adapted to your own needs; you can also apply for an interpretation service. Courses are very practical and hands-on and are conducted by local maestros concerned with maintaining Italian artistic traditions alive. By the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
The programme includes aspects of acquisition of manual skill, execution of a copy (from Masters of various periods) of a facial detail using the squaring technique and employing pencil, red chalk, sepia and charcoal, use of the chiaroscuro technique to emphasise volume, execution of a copy without squaring, using only the median and diagonal co-ordinates to divide the composition., imitation of Old Master landscapes, on small-size paper using pen and ink, ballpoint pen and felt pen, drawing from life, chiaroscuro hatching using 45° technique or pencil point, enlargement by means of squaring, landscape drawing from life, study of composition, still life and drapery, line drawing practice (charcoal drawing, timed drawing and drawing from memory).
