I am happy to announce that I will be opening a teaching atelier in my new studio in Florence, Italy. A wide range of study options will be available to students of all levels.
Full time study is organized in a classical atelier environment emphasizing a personalized development made possible by a concentrated class size: maximum enrollment of 4. An interdisciplinary approach is encouraged. In addition to the standard curriculum, students will have opportunity to pursue artistic anatomy, composition, sculpture and printmaking.
Throughout the year, short courses, weekend classes and workshops will explore specific historic techniques such as: sight size oil portraiture, fresco painting, pastel painting and portrait sculpture. Visiting internationally known figurative artists will be invited to teach workshops as well.
The space is quite special. It is purpose built 19th Century historic studio constructed for the Florentine painter Michele Gordigiani. His famous pupil, Giovanni Boldini also worked in the same space where students will complete their projects under natural north light.
