Watercolor Course in Florence, Italy

After having studied the basic notions of color theory and the techniques of form and content, transparency and opacity through the "language" of figurative painting, the students will start painting on paper.

Some classes can be held outside the classroom, taking inspiration in surrounding environment, using the landscapes of the squares, streets, monuments and hillsides of Florence. Visits to museums and art exhibits considered relevant to the learning goals of the course may also be arranged.

The techniques will be taught gradually with a practical methodology. In each class, students will practice and apply a wide variety of skills in different tasks established by the teacher. The goal of the watercolor course is to improve or perfect the skills they need in order to pursue this medium independently.

The AEF teachers are all highly qualified and active artists in the Florentine art scene. Visits to famous exhibits should also take place during the course.
