Florence Academy of Art  Educating artists at the highest levels of Classical Academic Realism. Drawing. Painting. Sculpture.

This week, we'll take a look at the painting program and highlight the work and exercises done over each of the three years!
When students in the first year intensive drawing program finish their bargue training, they move into charcoal cast drawings, as seen above with a drawing by Thomas Graveleau.

Students from both the sculpture and painting programs share and work from our library of plaster casts as we believe it to be a fundamental learning tool to help students understand form and light. Are there any casts that you've seen that inspire you to paint or sculpt it?
Stay tuned next week, where we'll have a look at the progression of the painting program course! - Daniel Barreto Ramos, First year sculpture student - Ruobing Yang, Second year painting student

Students at the Florence Academy of Art all attend an anatomy lecture by @rhgreathouse followed by an optional year long écorché class by @marty.welsh & @mhpart. We believe that a strong painting of the human figure requires an equally strong understanding of the human anatomy!
Check out our facebook page for an accompanying post with more images from our écorché class!
