Intensive courses in portraiture, sculpting, costumed figure, landscape and interior painting.
The workshops at The Florence Academy of Art / Sweden are designed for students with a strong desire to develop their artistic skills. Most of the instruction is on an individual basis and our instructors adapt the exercises to your level of experience. This means that the courses are suitable for both beginners and professional artists.In addition to the individual feedback there will also be group lessons and in-class demos. The skills you acquire during your course can be applied directly to your continued artistic endeavours.
The Spring Workshop Sessions will take place over two weeks occurring March 25-29 and April 1-5. Each course lasts 5 days but if you sign up for both weeks you will have the opportunity to study one subject more intensely or try two different courses!

PAINTING A COSTUMED FIGURE
Instructor: Tanvi Pathare
During this workshop students will have the chance to paint colorful fabric, still life objects, and human skin while working from a live model. We will have the same set up for both weeks so applicants who sign up for both will have additional time to work on their painting.
