The summer period in which the course is held allows spending a lot of class hours practicing in outdoor painting and drawing along with many studio hours dedicated to working with the models, anatomy and various studio subjects such as constructive drawing, introduction to color science and many others. 


This course provides the students with highly individual and customized training in small student groups. Our professors are top-notch experts who will meet you on your level of preparation and your artistic background.
