Spring & Summer Sessions

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.

If you have any questions please send an email to info@florenceacademyofart.se or call us at +46 (0)31 7060860 during our office hours.

    Instructor: Carl Sandvold In this course students learn techniques to sculpt a portrait (head). With a focus on improving understanding of the structure of the human head and its anatomy, the instructor will introduce relevant ways to measure and sculpt individual traits and expression through the study of symmetry and asymmetry. All sculpting supplies will be provided so you do not need to bring anything with you except perhaps something to take notes with.
  • Instructor:  Michael DeVore Come learn to paint a portrait with the best model you will ever have: yourself! Artists throughout history have famously painted self-portraits. The ability to use one's self as a model gives the artist the opportunity to learn and experiment in ways they could not with a regular model. There are no budget or time limits so you can make spontaneous changes and spend more time working things out. This is also a perfect way to study how to paint the human face. During the course students will learn how to acheive correct proportions, create form, and mix skin colors. They will also learn how to use themselves as a model for narrative works. Join us this fall and really get to know yourself! All painting supplies will be provided so you do not need to bring anything with you except perhaps something to take notes with.
