Drawing & Painting During the drawing course the students will be introduced to the use of various materials such as: charcoal, sanguigna and pencil. As regard to painting: studies include the use of tempera, oil and acrylic colours. By using these various materials, students will learn to interpret the form of still life and figure drawings with live models. They can also work on fully expressing their own ideas or in duplicating an existing work of art. The lessons are taught in Italian and/or in English language.

Ancient Painting Techniques The course introduces the students to the painting techniques practiced between 1300 and 1500. They also study the major art works created during that period by artists from Giotto to Leonardo and Michelangelo. The knowledge gained will be put into practice by the copying of paintings in order for the student to learn the fundamental techniques used; such as egg tempera, gold leaf, oil colors and other materials. The entire process for the realization of complete paintings will start by the preparation of the supports and it will end with the final glazing.

Mural Painting Fresco During this course the students will be introduced to the materials used in the creation of a fresco using the medieval and renaissance technique applied by the old masters. They can also express their own ideas in a sketch using new techniques. The knowledge acquired will be put in use through the execution of one or more paintings.

Mosaic In this course we propose to teach the basic technique of making a mosaic with different materials. For the beginner, we will us ceramic tiles to copy a chosen model. Instead, with the advanced level student, we will use glaze of marble to create an original design. With the knowledge of the basic technique of the traditional mosaic, learned during the course, the student will be able to make, by himself, a mosaic in the classic style.

Printing A personalized workshop. Lessons and guided exercises in printmaking and printing techniques. Suitable for anyone, including those with no basic training, interested in a serious approach to the subject. Non-intensive and repeatable.
