Long term academic course of Visual Arts

The entire course has an overall duration of 2 academic years (72 weeks), during which students will approach, learn and  practice the different techniques for drawing, painting, art graphics, illustration and comics. Every year students will thoroughly attend 504 hours of tuition.

AdG school created a two-year study programme whose aim is to provide the students the essential tools and the necessary knowledge to advance in their art studies. Classical art techniques such as drawing and painting will be taught along with more modern visual art disciplines, such as graphics, comics and illustration. The use of different materials as well as the in-depth study of various and dissimilar subjects are meant to motivate the students and encourage them to cope with this exhaustive art syllabus.

Every year students will thoroughly attend 504 hours of tuition. Classes will be held from 2pm to 5.30pm, from Monday to Thursday. Each week students will attend 14 hours of tuition (inclusive of 2 hours of life drawing with living models). Every morning from 9.30am and on Friday afternoon (until 4pm) students will be welcome to work and train their art skills in the studio, as long as the school does not need the studio for a special course/lecture.

Here is the syllabus listing the visual art disciplines that students will study throughout their 2-year course:

  • analysis of the shapes and descriptive geometry
  • visual education;
  • history of Italian art;
  • drawing techniques;
  • life drawing techniques;
  • volumes and perspective;
  • art graphics;
  • painting;
  • set design;
  • decoration;
  • illustration;
  • comics;
  • elements and techniques of sculpture

All of our teachers are highly qualified and experts in the different subjects and techniques. They have a degree from an approved Italian university or academy, are native Italian speakers who can also speak English, and have at least 4 years teaching experience. Moreover, They are prepared to tutor the students and guide them during the two years of study through the comprehensive visual art programme, without disregarding the needs, the artistic skills and the the creativity of each single student.

At the end of the academic programme:

  • an art exhibition will be organized in the school premises for all the students who have attended the entire two-year art course.
  • a certificate of attendance will be issued to those students who have attended at least 80% of the overall lessons.

There are no requisites for admission, but since each seminar is taught in either Italian or English, a working knowledge of either language is required.
