Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Painting and Drawing
Program: One-Year Course
Period: Jan. 14, 2019 - Jul. 26, 2019
I never dreamt I could pursue my passion professionally, but after being given this opportunity at Accademia Riaci in beautiful Italy, it seems more than possible. With the help of a few well-known professionals in Florence, I can continue to learn and blossom as an artist.
Our Art Stage this month was to a beautiful town in the hills outside of Florence, Fiesole. Prof. Lorenzo walked with us around the town and we got coffee and spent time in the garden sketching.
This is an example of his work:
I was inspired by his ability to achieve such contrast with only a pen. I hope one day I can work as quickly and diligently as him, even outside on a chilly day.
I decided to give this a try with a landscape view from the cafe window. Meanwhile, my classmates held a portrait-drawing competition amongst each other. It was entertaining to watch, but I had clearly had enough of portrait drawing in my other classes.
It was a peaceful trip. I enjoy being around other creative minds who encourage and inspire me; I’m not used to this kind of company in the United States. It was a humble reminder of the diverse attitude about art here in Italy.
