The workshops at The Florence Academy of Art / Sweden present a unique opportunity to study with a variety of visiting artists teaching different techniques. These intensive workshops are perfect for students who 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, which means that the courses are suitable for both beginners and professional artists. The skills you acquire during your course can be applied directly to the development of your own artwork. If you would like to receive email updates about our workshops please send an email to and we will put you on our mailing list.

Our spring and summer intensive courses give students a chance to study a subject intensely. We provide 6 hours of guided learning over 5 days for each course. Students can sign up for additional courses to extend their studies and even experience different subjects. We typically offer courses in painting the portrait and human figure, sculpture, still life painting, and landscape.

The part-time study course gives students the ability to study over a longer period of time and make it a regular part of their life. Students can participate once or twice per week over an 11-week period. The excercises used in the class are based on those used in our academic curriculum to give students a strong foundation in drawing and painting.

These workshops give participants a chance to study with various visiting instructors and learn something in a short period of time. This is perfect for those who want to try a new technique or study with a particular artist.

The open drawing sessions are for anyone with an interest in studying the human form. We provide a live model holding a pose for two hours for a unique drawing experience. Easels and drawing boards will be provided to those who sign up first. All participants must bring their own drawing materials (pencils, paper, tape, etc.).

We offer classes for younger students between the ages of 8 and 17. These classes are a wonderful for introducing young artists to drawing and painting techniques that will help them grow into mature artists.
