Characteristics of the course of study

Individual research and technique.
The Painting Course offers students the opportunity to undertake a complete and practical course of study that helps them know and deepen the various painting techniques, which also supports them in discovering their stylistic code. The adopted methodology allows the student to move between the sculpture canvas's two-dimensionality and the three-dimensionality one. For this reason, the first two years are in common with the Sculpture course, foreseeing the same disciplines. A gradual path, wisely built on the balance between academic activities and dedicated practices (both technical and exquisitely artistic), shall accompany the students until the third year. Through it, they will also find the digital creative language through specific disciplines that represent painting in a more contemporary and that should open up new dimensions of growth.
