Join Geoff Flack and Carol Hendricks for this unparalleled opportunity to study the art and architecture of the Renaissance while refining your drawing skills.

During this 15 day/16 night Florence intensive Geoff Flack will teach a variety of drawing techniques that you can apply when depicting the magnificent sculptures and buildings of Florence. Hone your skills in one of the world’s most inspirational cities, home to Michelangelo, the Medici family and famed birthplace of the Renaissance. Most afternoons will be spent in the classroom drawing from a model while you will also sketch masterpieces in the city’s beautiful churches and extraordinary museums.

Carol Hendricks, your Italian art history expert, introduces you to Florence’s famed art and history.  Most mornings will be spent touring and drawing in places such as the Uffizi, San Marco, Santa Croce, the Bargello, Santa Maria Novella and the museums of the Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Gardens.  Students will gain knowledge through lectures, discussion and hands on practice in drawing in the studio and on location in the city.
