 Florence Sketchbook

Conducted in English

This course is designed to take full advantage of the student's unique experiences of living and studying in the city of Florence. With on-site inspiration channeled into artistic creativity, students will draw on location at sites of historical significance and visual interest, ranging from architectural masterpieces, landscape vistas and medieval streets to formal gardens, street markets and Renaissance fountains. Slide lectures will document the rich history of how Florence and its environs have attracted and inspired visiting artists for centuries. Students will develop individual sketchbooks with the aim of building up a professional portfolio with source material for future projects. No prerequisites required for this course.

Travel during class time is strictly prohibited.
