Drawing in Italy

Winterim 2015

In the tradition of both the flaneur and the studio artist, this course is a combination of walking and drawing. Taking in the rich history of Florence from Roman to Renaissance to modern times, we will document our observations by notes and drawings in handmade books every afternoon and work in the studios at the beautiful Santa Reparata International School of Art every morning. 

Excursions will include trips to Siena and the hill town of Fiesole, a number of museums for which Florence is justly renowned as well as lesser known delights such as the Museo della Specola. Now featured as a Winter term course, students have the additional opportunity to observe the Feast of the Epiphany with the Cavalcade of the Magi, a celebration involving a long, grand parade in magnificent costumes.

This course is designed for all studio students (and will fulfill requirements for FINE 3030 The Media of Drawing and other studio electives) but it is also open to others who simply want to learn and experience an area through of a variety visual documentation. No pre-requisites or previous drawing experience is required.

Scholarships are avaiable! Check out the VA Scholarship and the Global Studies Scholarship. The deadline for both of these is October 1, 2014.

This course will be registered as a Spring 2015 course, so Spring Financial Aid is available!
