Summer Courses -

Drawing and Painting

The artistic subjects, such as drawing and painting, are proposed by the Accademia Italiana both as academic courses (which can be attended for one or more semesters) as well as short courses that can be attended for one or more months, or as a summer course.

These monthly summer courses may be attended for 40 hours per month (regular course) or 80 per month (intensive course), in the months of June, July and August.
The students work in a spacious art studio located just a few steps away from the Uffizi Gallery on the famous "Lungarno".

The instructors follow each student individually beginning from whatever basis of knowledge the student may have to elaborate each one's own personal expressive capacity.
Various arguments and techniques are covered, nude drawing, life drawing, painting techniques, mixed media, themes concerning the theory and history of art.
The course is completed by seminars and guided visits to museums and exhibitions.

Often the students are invited to participate in exhibitions and creative events with their own works.
The students, living and working in Florence, have the wonderful opportunity of a direct confrontation with the masterpieces of the past and, through the activities of the school, the opportunity of a real contact with contemporary art.
