Our Art teacher will evaluate them and will discuss with you about your goals and main interests in Art techniques. Also please note that all participants will attend a minimum of 56 class hours per 4-week period through a combination of mainly drawing and painting classes.

The programme and the techniques

· An introduction to the basic drawing techniques (line, design and “chiaroscuro”)
· The study of anatomy and the methodology traditionally used to draw bodies and faces. Students may choose to practise also with sanguine, pen-and-ink, pastel crayon.
· The course will then focus on the rudiments of the colour theory and the practice of various techniques, such as acrylic and water colour painting.

No specific artistic skills or background are required.

Credits: As most universities and colleges consider 10 hours of study per term to be an acceptable level, we offer classes which provide the equivalent of 5 hours of credit per term for the study of the Italian language, along with hours for other modules such as Drawing and Painting.
