Intensive Workshops in Art
At AdG several intensive seminars of Fine Arts are offered throughout the year (some of them on specific dates). Art workshops normally run on a weekly basis both in the morning and in the afternoon, from Monday to Friday. Each programme consists of 30 hours of lessons, which take place either in our fully equipped Art studio or outside in the heart of Florence or in its surroundings.
Classes are held both in Italian and English.
Here are the subjects and techniques that are taught in our seminars:
- Sketchbook in Florence and landscape/cityscape;
- Portrait and Self-portrait;
- Life Drawing;
- Sanguine, charcoal and other classical drawing techniques;
- Trompe l’oeil;
- Art in the museums;
- Painting from a photo;
- Floral and Animal Painting;
- Landscape, wildlife and marine;
- One day of Art in Castiglioncello or at the Cinque Terre;
- Costumes and drapery;
- Painting Tuscany;
- Interior design and fine-arts;
- Cityscape and architecture;
- Combined Art Workshop.
During our classes students can learn and develop various art disciplines: for example they can choose to discover the fundamentals of the portrait and its secrets, they can apply themselves to draw from models posing in the nude, they can create a sketchbook of the historic Florence, they can dedicate to focus on the effect of light and shade in a still life, or they can even try to experience more unusual techniques, such as trompe-l’oeil or linoleumgraphy.
All these workshops are meant not only for capable students who wish to improve their style and their creativeness, but also for those people whose aim is to discover the fundamentals of the various techniques.
Since classes are usually made up of 6-8 learners (maximum 10 students), most of the time during the lessons every student will be tutored individually.
If you wish to know the entry dates of each seminar please see its corresponding web page.
All workshops can be attended any week throughout the year, unless specified in the course page.
The workshops have a duration of 5 days, from Monday to Friday, morning and afternoon, for a total amount of 30 hours of tuition (unless specified on the course page). The schedule is as it follows:
- 10am-1pm and 1.30pm-5pm from Monday to Thursday.
- 10am-1pm on Friday.
