Painting and Italian


Italian language lessons in the morning and a painting course in the afternoon.

This exciting course has been created for enthusiasts of Italian art, and is taught by a skilled painter from Todi. She demonstrates all the basic techniques and helps participants paint their own canvases, which they take home at the end of the course.

TEACHING is based on two different learning sessions: The first, looks at a better understanding of the Italian language structure, and how to put it into practical use. The second, focuses on the study of painting techniques that are then applied to students’ own works of art.

THE TOWN of TODI is a splendid setting for the course. It is steeped in art and history, and immersed in the wonderful green countryside of Umbria.

THE COURSE is for a minimum of one week and takes place from Monday to Friday. It includes 20 hours of Italian in group lessons. Painting is at the discretion of the students who can choose a 10, 20, 30-hour (or more) course depending on what they plan to produce. The course takes place in historic buildings near the main square, and students live with selected host families, or in renovated apartments in the center of Todi.


Arrivals are on Sunday, with reception in the apartment or with the family.

Monday – Friday

9.00 - 13.00:

Italian group lesson, language structure and conversation.


Students are free to choose one or more 10-hour modules depending on what they plan to paint.

During the course, participants use oils, tempera and acrylics for still-life studies, landscapes and life drawings, for which live models are used. Initially, students practice the painting techniques by copying famous works of art.

Then, the combination of new skills and creative guidance helps students to develop their own artistic language and personal style. At the end of the course, each student successfully paints at least one picture.


Final goodbyes and departure.
