Painting - Contemporary Techniques Course
Attending a Painting with Contemporary Techniques in Italy, especially in Florence, is important for those interested in art because Florence is not only the city of the Renaissance, but it is also a dynamic center for contemporary art. Important Italian and foreign institutions promote and experiment with new languages and avant-garde. Many Italian and foreign artists have their studios and laboratories here and many young people from all over the world come here to learn the most modern painting techniques. The school offers a course that will help the student to go beyond the limits of canvas and brush, to become familiar with all those materials that are part of the Contemporary Art universe. The student will be stimulated to develop a personal artistic language and experiment with his own creativity.
Courses start every Monday, and lessons are held in the afternoon: Monday to Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
