Painting - Ancient Techniques Course
Studying Painting with Ancient Techniques in Florence is an important experience as the town was the cradle of art in the Middle Ages and Renaissance and the great masters such as Giotto, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci worked here to create their masterpieces. Surely it is important and also culturally and aesthetically enriching to know about the techniques, materials and styles of these great masters. The target of a course of Painting with Ancient Techniques in Italy and particularly in Florence is to reconnect to the great art of the Renaissance and enable students to create personal works by utilizing ancient techniques: egg tempera, gold-leaf and oil colors. The course at the Leonardo da Vinci Academy of Florence includes teaching of the following techniques: board preparation, egg tempera, preparation of the canvas for oil painting, transfer of the drawing onto the board, “bolo” preparation for gold-leaf, gilding, preparation of egg tempera, preparation of oil color. At the end of the course the students will be capable of reproducing a painting by using egg tempera or oil color.
