The academic year focuses on the relationship between student, painting and the current cultural context. Artistic and technical skills - such as drawing, painting, photography and information technology - are put into relation with studies dedicated to the knowledge of oneself and of one's intentions and artistic skills.

The course is designed to balance and compare "historic" techniques, such as drawing and painting, with contemporary tools and procedures, such as information technologies and methodologies for art design. The aim is twofold: to consolidate the cultural foundations of an artist's education and to start the individual path as an author.

From the beginning, the school will organize extra-curricular activities, such as tours of museums, workshops, external collaborations and field trips, first in Italy and then abroad (depending on the International COVID restrictions).
