Excellent on-line course.  Systematic, and very well structured.  In one year, it took me gradually from the basic elements of drawings and oil paintings to the level where I can do my own art work with very satisfactory results. I never believed that I can do any oil paintings, but with the good instructions and precise and constructive comments from the professors, I am now able to paint in oil, and produce very nice pencil drawings, in the classical style.

"The academy has helped me a lot in challenging myself. The professors were very helpful with their feedback and constant encouragement. I finally started to draw/paint consciously by understanding the forms and color relations"

My experience at FCAA was wonderful! It was more than I ever hoped for! I was pleasantly surprised at the information and education that I received. The staff and administration were very kind and helpful. They were there to support me in my dream of studying art in Florence, Italy. They helped me to overcome student visa issues. They knew exactly what to do and we were able to resolve the problems. The art instructors are the absolute best. Everyone of them are artist of the highest caliber. They are very professional in their teaching methods and techniques. They were genuinely concerned about my progress and my success in grasping the artistic principles they were teaching. I was astounded when I saw the private artworks of the instructors. The quality of their artworks shows they are outstanding artists. I feel so blessed to have been able to learn at their hands. Thank you so much for an amazing year!

It was an amazing journey to be part of FCCA. How fast a year passed unbelievable. 

This program has everything you need to learn in the beginning or to improve your talent. All teachers are very nice, productive and supportive. You can always contact for any question. 

I could’t imagine before, that l can draw or paint with oil color academically. This was a dream for me. Now I feel confidence on fundamentals of painting and clear about all stages. Just need to practice more and more by my self. The best part is, l’ve learnt not to be afraid of my mistakes. I enjoyed a lot and now l have a totally different point of view.

“The FCAA was a great experience for me. I learned the basics of the profession of artist from competent and benevolent teachers. Classic know-how and a modern pedagogical approach: what more could you ask for?”

  • Does the school help with finding accommodation?
    Yes. We offer a limited number of housing solutions for our students at student dormitory in the Academy building. Address: via delle Panche 140, Florence. There are single rooms. The bathrooms and kitchens are to share with other students. The rental contract is signed for one academic year for full-time students (from 1st of September till 30th of June). Short-term students may as well inquire to stay at the student dorm, according to the daily rental rate 35 euro a night per person or 55 euro for two people staying in one room, if there are rooms available at the moment of their request. For accommodation cost, services included and other important details please request Accommodation guide from admin office through email:
  • What is the average cost of living in Florence?
    Living expenses always depend on the person who spends and the life style one is used to. However, roughly speaking, the average cost of life in Florence varies from 600-800 euro for accommodation per month and around 400-500 euro for food and expenses. Art materials around 200 euro a month.
  • Does the cost of tuition include materials?
    No. The cost of tuition does not include materials. Buying art supplies such as paints, canvases, paper, boards and etc. is student’s responsibility. Your teachers will advise you in regards to the best choices for your assignments. You will be given the list of paints, brushes and etc. when you begin your studies.
  • Is it cheaper to buy materials in my home country or in Florence?
    This depends on where are you from. Mostly, we recommend to the students to buy their materials here, since Florence is full of art shops and the offer range is quite wide.
  • Can I use Italian medical services as a foreigner?
    Yes, definitely. If you wish to use medical services in Italy, you will need to register at a local clinic to be assigned to a doctor. In order to do that you need to apply for Tessera Sanitaria (Italian medical card). It is an easy procedure that can be done online. You can ask for advice on how to do it at the admin office of the academy upon your arrival.
  • What career perspectives do I have after I graduate?
    Depending on your career preferences, you can choose a path of being a painter, graphic artist, illustration artist, story board artist for movie industry, animation and etc. The principles we teach are fundamental and crucial for an artist of any kind, since the most important rules of composition, color perception and the form always remain the same in all fields of visual arts.
  • Are there exhibitions I could be part of during my time with FCAA?
    Yes, certainly. As a student you will be participating in as a minimum two exhibitions per year: in December and in June which is a mid-term and final exhibition of the year. Also, our students have the chance to exhibit in current expositions organised by the Academy. This could be in Italy or even abroad. In previous years FCAA has organised exhibitions in Switzerland, China, Russia, Norway, Italy and USA. *Only for students, who will continue 2nd year Program in studio
  • Is there a winter semester enrollment?
    Yes, there is a Winter Intensive Intake program. Those joining in February will be taking part in an intensive program that will continue till the end of July. During certain months of the program the students will have access to three additional evening courses per week included in the curriculum. In this way, you will have full coverage of academic hours offered for One-Year program and will be eligible for the 2nd year admission exam in October of the following year. The deadline for the Winter Intensive Intake application is 1st of December.
  • Can I work part-time in Florence while I am a student?
    Yes, according to the Italian law, being a student and having Permesso di Soggiorno (per motivi di studio) you can work part-time, which means maximum 20 hours a week. We hope this information was helpful. If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at We will be delighted to provide full guidance and support in the process of your enrollment. Warmest regards, Admissions Office of the Florence Classical Arts Academy
