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 source
material for future projects. No prerequisites required for this course.
Travel during class time is strictly prohibited.
