The course programs leading to the first-level academic diploma in the School of Painting are intended to develop skilled and qualified professional figures who, taking account of the variety of codes of expression and technical innovations in the field, are able to develop their personal capacities in the context of experimentation with both traditional and new expressive means.
Students in the School’s diploma course must:
- possess an adequate technical-operative mastery of methods and contents relative to the techniques and technologies of painting, leading to acquisition of autonomous personal awareness of artistic production;
- possess methodological and critical skills permitting acquisition of competence in more advanced expressive means, techniques and technologies;
- be competent in at least one foreign language of the European Community, besides the mother tongue, in the main area of competence and for general information exchange;
- possess adequate skills in digital communication and management of information.
Graduates will undertake professional activities in various fields, both as free-lance professionals in the visual arts and other creative activities, and as collaborators in the planning, design and execution of specific painting projects, using both traditional techniques and new technologies and forms of expression employed in national and international contexts.
The Academies will organise, in collaboration with public and private institutions, internships and apprenticeships that will provide the specific skills needed, and will further define specific training models for each course of study.
In order to complete the curriculum and gain admittance to discussion of the written and practical thesis , candidates must pass all exams and obtain the following academic credits:
- 108 credits in foundation and specific training activities (foundation 36-48 credits, specific 60-72 credits)
- 4 compulsory credits for a foreign European language
- 12 credits for the thesis and three practical examinations
TOTAL CREDITS: 180
The diploma will be awarded when the candidate has obtained the required academic credits, has passed all exams and successfully discussed his or her thesis, also presenting three artistic projects agreed with the Head of Department.
In calculating credits candidates may not cite the same course more than once, unless this is expressly permitted.
