With the aim of providing our students with all the aesthetic and expressive resources of a professional artist, our course begins by teaching the most basic principles of representative drawing from life; starting with copying the famous lithographs of Charles Bargue, and moving on to the representation of classical statues and models from life, students will be able to learn the concepts of composition, proportion, direction of light and organization of values, thus facilitating the process of growth and making the transition to painting more natural. Once acquired the basics of observation and representation from life, in fact, the artists will have a first approach with the fundamentals of oil painting, through the study of color, materials and methods, to be put into practice then with the realization of still life, portraits and paintings to the first. All the exercises assigned are based on the skills and knowledge acquired during the previous exercise, thus giving the opportunity to reach the goals at your own pace through small manageable steps.
