Artistic Decoration

Professional designer, executive art decorator

Characteristics of the course of study

Facing the two-year specialist course in Artistic decoration, the student refines and deepens his language by investigating and developing a characteristic creative lexicon and an idea of the creative-entrepreneurial definition of his work, following his path of professionalizing research. The laboratories and modules integrated into the courses, thanks to the collaboration with professionals and companies in the sector, develop integrated skills in decoration for the design and interventions in internal and external, public-private environments. In this case, the client is experienced in a relationship with the professional above all cultures. The intent is to educate the client by the Artistic Decorator in a relationship based on a mutual growth in the quality of the artistic activity in the public and private sphere. The training and research-action activities promoted in the two years will consider the lived experience, in the various contexts, from the projections of creative and artistic expression to the motivational impulses that each student will be able to put into action. Through the search for applicative technical solutions, the execution of new works, with the use of traditional or contemporary materials, will allow the artistic decorator to operate in the field of the art architecture, finalizing his work to achieve higher expressive quality, aesthetics, and innovation.

Course Goals

The Artistic Decoration Course aims to train a professional Decorator who knows the different types of materials and their creative use, starting from a solid design and bringing innovation to the environment intended for decoration. The course trains decorators who know how to collaborate with other professionals (i.e., site manager, interior designer, restorer) and allows the student to develop their style and distinctive trait, useful to propose themselves with their uniqueness to public and private clients in cultural dialogue with it. From this point of view, the opportunities for planning and realization on assignment proposed by the circuit of collaborators in contact with the Academy are fundamental, allowing the student to work on concrete projects and measure themselves with the client's requests.
