One day Art Workshop Experience

If you are staying in Florence for a few days, surely you will want to visit the Florentine museums and admire the works of Donatello, Botticelli, Michelangelo and many others. Why not dedicate one morning to an art workshop where you can observe and try out the most important and fascinating techniques used by the great masters? The Leonardo da Vinci Art School offers, along with the normal courses, individual art workshops for just one morning, addressed to those who have little time available but would still like to experience an art workshop in the city of the Renaissance.

The teacher will explain the technique of your choice, will introduce the use of the necessary materials and tools and will guide you in the practical realization of a small work to take home.

It is possible to choose between the following types of workshops:
- Drawing indoors or outdoors
- Ancient Techniques (Egg Tempera and Gold leaf)
- Fresco
- Picture Techniques (Acrylic or Watercolor Painting)

The workshop lasts 3 hours, in the morning from 9.00 to 12.00 or from 10.00 to 13.00. The lessons must be booked at least two weeks in advance in order to confirm the availability of the course and advanced payment is required.

DRAWING (indoors o outdoors): students can choose to do drawing lessons indoors, still life drawing, or life drawing with a nude model (in this case at the price of the workshop will be added an extra for the model); or drawign outdoors in the streets and squares of Florence.

ANCIENT TECHNIQUES: students will do a little painting on a wooden board prepared for the egg tempera, and the they will learn how to apply a gold-leaf decoration to certain areas of the painting.

FRESCO: students will learn how to create a fresco painting, working on a layer of fresh intonaco (“giornata”). They will not work on a wall, as it is expected from this technique, but on a board that is light enough to be taken home.

PIAINTING (acrylic paintings or watercolors): students can choose to learn how to paint with either watercolours or acrylic colors, very different types of paint that have in common very fast drying times. This will allow studetns to take home the painting at the end of the lesson without having to worry about ruining it during transport

Art materials are not included in the course fees.  Some basic material may be provided by the school.
