Photo of Design and Art Courses in Italy History of Italian Art
Are you fascinated by Italy's magnificent cultural works? Our course on the History of Italian Art will enable you to understand its history and social background. The course is designed to show, by means of slides and guided visits, the development of art in Italy in relation to the rest of Europe and offers you an introduction to the most important artistic styles (Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque). You will become acquainted with the most important works of artists such as Botticelli, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo while learning about the most significant historical and social events that accompanied them.

Drawing Course
Everyone can learn to draw properly, just as everyone can learn a foreign language. It's basically a matter of learning to see the reality around us and trying to reproduce it with the means to hand. The objective of the course is to teach you to see the form, proportions, perspective, light and shadow (chiaroscuro) in the world through drawing.

Every lesson the teacher will introduce a new subject, he'll explain which are the most important characteristics and will then ask you to draw it. The subject is usually still life: objects, fruit etc. chosen according to a sliding scale of difficulty. You will use a simple pencil to draw and in this way you will be able to judge the outcome of your efforts straight away; either appraising or correcting, as the teacher will teach you how to examine and assess it. As the lessons progress you will become more independent until you are able to draw on your own and carry on this amazing faculty.

Watercolour Course
The first lesson introduces the basic techniques: how to use the paintbrush, how to do a wash of colour and then another one over the top, how to dilute a colour. You will immediately do a simple watercolour in one colour, to try and consolidate these techniques. In the following lessons you will use all the colours, learning to balance hot and cold colours and at first painting easy subjects but then progressing to harder ones as proposed by the teacher. At the same time you will learn to assess your work, identifying the positive aspects and improving the unsatisfactory aspects. This course is suitable for students who already know how to draw quite well. At the end of the course (two or four weeks) you will be able to paint a still life of various subjects and know enough to be able to continue at home, personalizing your watercolours.
