My experience at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci was wonderful. The teachers I worked with and stuff was very kind and helpful. I did a Preparation Course for Accademia delle Belli Arti di Firenze - school of painting. During my stay in Scuola Leonardo da Vinci, I had drawing session of naturmort, some sculpture lessons and life drawing with a model. Besides that i did some copies from masters, like Leonardo and Ribera. After some practice for drawing, I started to work on painting. I tried two techniques: tempera and oil. I really enjoyed working with oil. The program that I did at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci was very personal, based on my natural talents and my weakness too. I had a very effective communication with my teachers so we always focused on my needs to accomplish the exam. At the end of 1.5 month of study, I accomplished the exam, I got accepted to Accademia delle belli arti di Firenze!.
