Angel Academy of Art

The Angel Academy of Art, Florence, offers an intensive three-year programme in traditional drawing and painting.

One of the very few such institutions in the world, the Angel Academy offers a curriculum designed to produce the highest calibre of professional artists, equipped to be leaders in the renaissance of classic, Realist painting.

After learning the basics by copying the special series of lithographs, the student progresses to working from white plaster casts of famous statues. These are studied first by making charcoal drawings, then by work in oil paint. Work with the live model begins in the first trimester.

Work from casts brings the student to the end of her/his second year of study, and this is followed by another year, working in still life. Still life is the best arena in which to study colour and the illusions of depth and texture.
