U.S. Branch of The Florence Academy of Art

The Florence Academy of Art announces the opening an Academy in the USA! Starting January 2015, the Florence Academy New York Metro will offer a full time Certificate program in Drawing & Painting with places for 20 students. Intensive workshops begin in March.

Academic Director, Jordan Sokol, and principal instructors, Amaya Gurpide and Richard Greathouse, are all painters trained in the philosophy, language of instruction, and methodology guiding the Florence studio. As a result, students from the New York Metro campus who wish to study abroad may transfer seamlessly into the same level in the program in Florence or at the academy’s branch in Mölndal, Sweden, or spend a trimester or more of study as an exchange student in one or both campuses abroad, without experiencing any difference whatsoever in methodology, curriculum or teaching style. This offers students a truly unique experience to study internationally and with a variety of Florence Academy instructors.
