    I heard they are good from someone who attended the school some years back. The summer school looks very tempting. I think another comparable school is the angel academy also in Florence. Both cost almost the same. Goodluck..I'll be checking in to see if you received any information.

    Be sure not to confuse the Florence Academy with the Academia. The Academy I think is all American/English? The Academia is all italian. The American one is extremely traditional - realistic, traditional materials, etc. The Academia seems to still have its futurismo movement going, although I was impressed by the print making studio there. I've seen very good work come from both.

    www.florenceacademyofart.com
    and
    www.angelartschool.com are both the schools I was talking about. I dont know what its worth but both are ARC approved ateliers. http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/database/atelier_list.asp.
    You are right about the florence academy being founded by Daniel Graves an American. The package they sent me lists their bank as Bank of New YorK.

    Unless you speak Italian, I dont know how an italian only speaking program can be beneficial. For me this will be one of the things tipping me towards the first two schools.

    You are correct. It appears Angel's summer course is only 10 days. And from what I see its mostly painting.
    I wish ARC would update their Atelier list. It looks pretty outdated.

    Charles H. Cecil Studios does a July Intensive Course (one month long). it's drawing and painting, using sight-size, in a fairly small sized class. the aim is to condense one term of tuition into one month.

    Florence Academy of Art, rather than doing one general course, do a number of different courses.

    The British Institute do a life drawing course of 3-4 weeks in October too.

    speaking Italian is beneficial for studying in Italy. It helps for artists reading museum footnotes about artwork, and placards, and it helps for ordering food and hotel rooms, while traveling. I can't tell you how many time's I've been embarassed to be American there, listening to other American's try to order food in English...

    Italian's also one of the easiest languages to learn so it's not a big deal.
