Accademia Del Giglio

The school has its premises in a 19th century building in the center of Florence in front of the Bargello National Museum.
The area is close to the Cathedral and the Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall.
The student is literally immersed in the artistic, historical and cultural heart of Florence, the "cradle of the Renaissance", within walking distance of the most prestigious monuments of the Romanesque, Gothic and the 15th century art.
Since 1995 all our courses have taken place in the school premises and have been held by our qualified and experienced teaching staff. We are not a school selling courses which afterwards other schools or institutes take charge of. That is why we offer only a selected choice of courses, whose programmes and schedule have been tested and improved throughout these years.
Available courses:
- Drawing and Painting techniques
- Fresco
- Life Drawing
- Summer workshops on portrait, sketchbook, sanguine, watercolour, trompe l'oeil, decoration, xylography, bas-relief.
- Preparatory courses for the Italian Fine Arts Academies.
- Art History
