Directions to The Florence Academy of Art
The Florence Academy of Art was founded in 1991 by Daniel Graves to provide the highest level of instruction in classical drawing, painting and sculpture. Graves' vision of the Academy is its potential to train a select group of highly skilled Realist painters and sculptors.
The Florence Academy of Art is:
- a branch of the International Academy of Fine Art and has been recognized to be a tax-exempt charitable organization under Section 501 c 3 of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States since 2000
- recognized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Ministry of Universities as a foreign non-profit university-level program
- a member of the Association of American College and University Programs in Italy (AACUPI)
- affiliated with Laguna College of Art and Design in Laguna Beach, CA
Class Commitment and Studio Environment
The complete program of study is three years (each year is divided into three 11-week trimesters), although students may continue for a fourth year of specialization. The student's class commitment includes 36 hours per week of full instruction; each student receives one critique in the morning and one critique in the afternoon from the course instructors. Students may also attend additional life drawing classes in the evenings. Regular lectures are conducted in Anatomy, Art History, Humanities and Figurative Composition, while special lectures include Historic Methods and Materials, and technical demonstrations on paint grinding, the properties of individual pigments, oils and varnishes and canvas preparation.
