This course is designed to take advantage of the vast array of art and culture that is present in the city of Florence. Students will have the opportunity to refine knowledge pertaining to line, tone, and artistic anatomy through direct observational drawing of some of the most famous statues in the world. One-point perspective will also be studied in the city’s piazzas and corridors affording students a once in a lifetime opportunity to comprehend perspective in the place where Filippo Brunelleschi first demonstrated the concept to his fellow citizens over five hundred years ago. Lessons are enhanced by lectures, on-site visits, and slides that include both old master and contemporary works.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. A complete list will be provided with the syllabus on the first day of class.
