Sketchbook in Florence and Landscape

Sketch en plein air

This workshop has been conceived for those students who wish to discover (or rediscover) in a week the poetry and the magic of Florence, with its renaissance buildings and its skyline dominated by the cathedral dome, as well as the relaxing atmosphere of the Tuscan countryside, with its vineyards and olive groves.

The aim of the course is to help the student to create a sketchbook with unforgettable memories of the historic city and its pastoral surroundings.

The course can be recommended both to Art novices and to experienced artists and professionals who intend to familiarize with the freehand drawing as well as with the perspective sketch.

During outdoor sessions students will learn how to draw and paint landscapes, cityscapes and architectural elements, such as squares, medieval towers, churches and narrow streets. The following techniques can be chosen: pencil, water colour, oil painting and pastel. Practice will concentrate mainly on the use of colour and on the perspective method.

The workshop has a duration of 5 days, from Monday to Friday, for a total amount of 30 hours of tuition, and it includes an excursion in the countryside around Florence.

Classes are held both in Italian or English.
