About the course

 Istituto Galilei organizes drawing and painting courses in Florence both in individual and group formula: during our art classes the teacher will help each student to work on the most suitable styles and techniques according to his/her personal artistic experience, preferences and inspiration.

In our drawing and painting courses you can decide to start your tuition drawing a work by one of the great masters of the Renaissance (Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael) in order to improve your sense of line and shapes, and continue your work completing your drawing with watercolors, oils or acrylics.

Our Art courses in Florence take place in professional atelier and studios, are open to students of all ages and nationalities and can cover different levels (from beginner to expert) and different techniques.
