During the drawing course the students will be introduced to the use of various materials such as: charcoal, sanguine and pencil.

As regard to painting: studies include the use of tempera, oil and acrylic colors.


Using these various materials they will learn to interpret the form of still life and figure drawings with live models. They can also work on expressing more fully their own ideas or in copying a work of art.


  • Painting with ancient techniques

The course introduces to the students the painting techniques practised between 1300 and 1500; also the study of the major works of the period from Giotto to Leonardo and Michelangelo. The knowledge gained will be put into practice by the copying of paintings in order that the student may learn the fundamental techniques used; such as egg tempera, gold leaf, up to an including oil colors. The entire process for the realization of complete paintings will be put into practice, from the preparation of the supports to the final glazing.
