Summer courses

Description of a course

The intensive training course includes the deep immersion in the cultural historical environment of the Renaissance era with the academic program that teaches the fundamentals of drawing, painting, architecture, art history and philosophy. The didactic educational programme targets different age groups, but since each student receives individual approach, the difficulty level of tasks is given according to the student’s age.

The uniqueness of this developmental course is reached by the full immersion of the students in the historical surrounding, in this case, a medieval – Renaissance city. The connection of the method of academic education in the area of visual arts – achieved through centuries – with lectures, excursions and discussions, allows to reach wonderful results in the individual educational process. Practical classes of drawing and painting are conducted by professors who graduated from the most prestigious Art Academies in Russia. Art history lectures and excursions are lead by art historians who have 15 years of work experience in Italy. Such connection of practical learning of fundamentals of Russian classical art with benchmark standards of the Renaissance in the city of Florence constitutes the first cultural project in the history of educational programmes.
