Santa Croce, Duomo, & Sketches

Today we visit Santa Croce. Unlike the last few days, today the weather is cooler in the 90’s and is welcomed by students. Santa Croce is a white and green building that is the largest Franciscan church in the world. Students, particularly the females cover up their shoulders and legs with shawls and scarves. Photography is allowed without a flash and students snap away photos of the church: it is beautiful inside and out. We visit the duomo, Museo dell’ Opera di Santa Maria de Fiore and are assigned drawing assignments: one of a figure, one architectural, and one of our choice. After the assignments, students are granted free time to roam and explore Florence.
