This course is designed for foundation level drawing students wishing to learn, or improve, the essential techniques of object and observational drawing along with intermittent drawing of the human figure. During the program, students will be introduced to all the fundamental principles and elements of drawing as well as the key techniques and media. Every lesson will have a precise goal and forms a progression of skills that students will build up over the course of the semester with the aid of weekly sketchbook exercises. 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.
