Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Ashley Li Ye
Course: Jewelry Design
Program: One Year Course
Period: Sep. 3, 2018 - Apr. 26, 2019
She has some experience in metalsmithing and precious metal Silver clay. After winning the competition hosted by Accademia Raici, she started her path in this therapeutic city, Florence.
We began this week by learning prospection. By drawing of rings in three views(front, side and up), we could deduce the relationship between each of them.
Most often we start with the front view by drawing centre lines. Next will be the up view.
Then, using the information we got for front and up, we could deduce the side view. By drawing an 45° line, we could transfer width of the ring to the side view.
Just a 5 minutes walk from the school, we visited Chiesa di Santa Trinita on Art visit this week. It is called Church of Santa Trinita in English.
It was initially built in a simple Romanesque style respecting the austerity of the Vallombrosan order but later was enlarged and restored following a Gothic style.
The restoration works started at the beginning of the 1300s and went on for the entire century after.
Tempted by the delicious food in Florence, me and my classmates. We ended our art visit with food that cannot be failed. “If for the sake of amour and cuisine, I must pay, I would give my life away. “
