The Accademia Europea di Firenze is one of the fastest growing schools in Florence, located in the center of the historic part of the city, it is a short walk from many of Italy’s most important sights, as well as, restaurants, shops, pubs, parks, night clubs and other places. The AEF staff will welcome you and take care of any arrangements you may need to make your stay the most enjoyable and comfortable possible.
This course, obviously, will enable students to draw any sight they wish. This is an important course for people who wish to not only learn how to draw but also to prepare paintings and represent the correct proportions and angles of the image. As was popular with the travelers in the 19th century, the students will draw views of everyday life as well as the landscape of Florence which they most interesting or significant.
They mediums used will vary from charcoal to pencil, from ink to colored pencils and watercolors. Given the importance of observing and studying the subjects to be reproduced, the course will often take place outside of the classroom, in the streets, piazzas, churches and museums of the city, as well as on the hillside and in the gardens around Florence.
The AEF has a team of fully equipped and experienced teachers who will enable you to develop the necessary skills and techniques for sketching.
Aside from regular courses our school offers a rich program of optional language and cultural activities (concerts, seminars, films, visits to museums and farms) as well as extra-curricular and recreational activities (parties, dinners, food and wine tasting, sports, etc.) which are offered every week to ensure the enjoyment and cultural fulfillment of the students.
