The Florence Art Studio:
Study cast drawing in Italy with The Florence Art Studio! A leading provider of art training to students from around the world, we are conveniently situated in the very centre of the beautiful and historic city of Florence. We offer an intensive art program taught in English that aims to teach the fundamentals of drawing and painting from life. This program is divided into discrete modules, each of which serves as the foundation for the next, including our Cast Drawing module, which uses classical sculpture to teach fundamental drawing skills in preparation for portraiture. You can also choose to study Cast Drawing as a stand-alone course.Email: Contact us belowCast Drawing Lessons - Taught in English:
Course Duration: You can choose to study from one week to one month or longer.
Observing sculpture teaches you how to abstract the essentials of an object from life. It allows for the study of form, while indirectly influencing the mind to the concepts present in the original work of art.
Building on the skills and techniques learned in the preceding Bargue Drawing module, this course involves working under unchanging light conditions using the sight-size method. Firstly, you envisage the cast in geometric form, then it is rendered in precise outline, shadow shapes identified and finally, it is modeled to give the illusion of three-dimensions.
You will make a series of cast drawing. Initially, these will be done in charcoal on white paper, and then using a toned paper with chalk to extend the value range, which prepares you for your first painting of the cast. A grisaille oil painting carries the lessons of the cast into the medium of paint, completing the drawing program.
