Fine Arts, Art History and Italian language courses in Florence

Long Term academic course of Visual Arts

A two-year programme in Fine Arts

The course was conceived after meeting with the several requests of students who had attended our 9-unit course and wanted to go on training and mastering their skills in different visual art fields. Therefore, AdG school created a two-year study programme whose aim is to provide the students the essential tools and the necessary knowledge to advance in their art studies.

Classical art techniques such as drawing and painting will be taught along with more modern visual art disciplines, such as graphics, comics and illustration. The use of different materials as well as the in-depth study of various and dissimilar subjects are meant to motivate the students and encourage them to cope with this exhaustive art syllabus.

The entire course has a duration of 2 academic years, during which students will approach, learn and practice the different techniques for drawing, painting, art graphics, illustration and comics.

Students can choose to attend:

  • the basic programme, 504 hours of tuition per year (14 hours of class every week);
  • the intensive programme, 720 hours of tuition per year (20 hours of class every week).
