Art and Crafts Course

The school offers afternoon courses in painting, ceramics, art history, engraving and photography that take place in the studios of local artists and artisans. These are coordinated to ensure that, at the end of the course, students are able to bring their works of art to final completion, be it a painting or a ceramic piece.
Our programs in 2004 are being conducted by artists and artisans with many years of experience and the ability to teach their particular artistic techniques. The courses are ideal for anyone wishing to learn the basics of the various art mediums and also for those who wish to extend their knowledge and technical know-how. The lessons are given in Todi in the artists own studios and workshops. There are usually ten lessons of three hours each. The course of study can be modified somewhat to conform to the level and aptitudes of individual students.
