About Our Drawing Courses in Florence

Our drawing program in Florence aims to provide students with a rational method to depict the human figure, as this subject remains one of the most complex models of artistic study.

The foundation of the methodology is supported by the study of freehand drawing and supplemented by a program of exercises to be completed outside of class. This makes monitoring student progress more effective.

Along with the guidance of the professor, students may decide to study either classical or contemporary freehand drawing techniques. Students may even choose to learn to draw cartoons and comics.

Our drawing professor teaches students how to achieve the sensitivity of lines, composition, shape, and proportion with the following skills:

  • Freehand drawing of static objects
  • Freehand drawing of shapes of the body and head
  • Freehand drawing of figures in space
  • Freehand drawing in movement
