Fine Arts, Art History and Italian language courses in Florence

Life-drawing and anatomy workshop

An in-depth study of the human body

Life-drawing and anatomy workshop

Artists and models

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, also through the technique of the “écorché”, a technique firstly introduced in the Renaissance period, whose aim was to depict the muscles and bones of a human  body, so as to better draw or paint the overlying skin.

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, pastel 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.

Classes are held both in Italian or English.
