Figura, Dutch Academy of Figurative Sculpture was founded by Sanne van Tongeren. The intensive 2-year course Sculpture offers a curriculum that emphasises the importance of observation and takes the time to practice it. The course predominantly works from live models. Participants are taught by instructors who have graduated from The Florence Academy of Art, a renowned classical academy for realistic figurative visual art. Figura underscores craft, focusing on quality over quantity and on craftsmanship in preparation of artistry. What can’t renew itself is antiquated.

‘Classic is what is vigorous!
(free after Goethe).
