Florence Classical Arts Academy

Introduction

Founded in Florence in 2009 from the inspiration of our Russian Director Molugova Nadezhda and Academicians, the Academy is strategically located in the Italian city of Florence; an ideal place where to learn and develop art and live a life in which each day the eye is caught by the historical beauties of the historical Italian art, a place where to live and experience the true “dolce vita”.

The place is a well-known source of inspiration which surely benefits the artist. Florence offers a rich and stimulating environment for art studies and living, a great life experience. Here you are in direct contact with works by many great Masters - among them Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli, all of whom made their name in this very city. Among the many art galleries and museums, there are the “Uffizi Gallery” and “Pitti Palace” which are world famous.

The city offers a lively and safe night-life and all the designers fashion shops, a vast number of bars and restaurants. Our Academy is nicely located at about 20 minutes walking distance from the center, in a very well served area.

Our Teaching Method was born 300 years ago when Russian artists developed it, inspired mainly by Italian and French Masters from Renaissance and later periods. Various famous artists contributed to this method and among them: Repin, Surikov, Serov, Levitan, Vasnetsov and Kuindzhi.

The Mission of our Academy is to build on such great traditions and help students to explore new ways, just as the first “Avant-garde” artists did at their time. That means expressing themselves in new ways through a deep understanding of techniques, gained through an integrated academic approach.

Our Professors are skilled artists graduated from top Russian academies. We have a very friendly environment where students are required to work intensively but with our professors always ready to listen, guide and encourage.

Due to their experience, they are able to assist the students by helping them to express their potential and become professional artists, working on subjects as: Painting, Drawing, Anatomy, Composition, Chromatics, Perspective and History of Art.
