The Florence Academy of Art is inviting you to participate in its inaugural West Coast workshops. Don’t wait, however, because enrollment is capped at 10! Details here.
How does Santa Barbara, California, sound in January? Delightful. How about joining the Florence Academy for a week of workshop magic while there? That’s what the famous academy is currently offering, and enrollment is still open.
Hosted in Santa Barbara between January 8-12 and January 15-19 will be the academy’s inaugural West Coast workshops, with several experienced instructors on hand to impart a substantial amount of information in a short period of time. “Instruction is by individual critique so you will be guided at your level of expertise,” they say.
“At the Florence Academy of Art, painting directly from life is the culmination of various skills. In this course, students may select to attend the one-week or two-week session in Portrait, Still Life, and Landscape Painting conducted by Florence Academy faculty. Each weekly session begins with an in-depth explanation of the Florence Academy method, a technical demonstration on mixing colors, organizing the palette, and preparing mediums, and producing a painting from life. Students work 6 hours daily, painting the portrait in the morning and the still life or landscape in the afternoon. Students may attend one week or two weeks. 30 hours per week full instruction. Students work from the live model three hours per day.”
Act quickly, however, because they’ve capped enrollment at 10 students per session. Tuition will be $1,375 per week. To learn more or register, contact Susan Tintori.
