The Scuola Internazionale di Grafica offers the opportunity to obtain a non-university certificate in Printmaking. This year-long course will provide students with the tools to master the Printmaking methods, while also exploring the Artist’s Book. Students will be guided throughout the academic year in the design and realization of personal works, based on the skills developed through the classes and the expressive needs of each participant.
The course ranges from the most traditional Printmaking techniques to the most innovative methods, with particular attention to the sustainability of contemporary methods. The contribution to the lessons of internationally renowned artists and guest artists from all the world is an additional value that allows students to get to know professional realities – not only Italian – and to deal with cutting-edge techniques.
The collection of artist’s books and the Scuola’s collection of prints are important examples for the lessons, while the textbooks in the library, which can always be consulted, allow students to deepen their knowledge of numerous technical and theoretical aspects relating to Italian and international Printmaking.
The Master Course in Printmaking opens to the professional world while encouraging participation in exhibitions, contests, and creating new links with artists from around the world.
Each student will be required to attend the following courses:
Intaglio Printmaking every Tuesday from October to May, from 14.00 to 18.00
Woodcut every Monday from October to January, from 14.00 to 18.00
Lithography every Monday from 20 April to 11 May, from 14.00 to 18.00
The Artist’s Book (two cycles of 5 lessons) every Wednesday from 8 January to 11 March, from 14.00 to 18.00
Every Friday, students will have free access to the print-workshop for independent work, with the presence of a teacher.
The fees of the Master Course in Printmaking amount to €4,000.00, to be paid as follows:
€400,00 registration fees;
8 installments of € 450.00 to be paid at the beginning of each month.
Students will have the opportunity not only to attend courses taught by qualified faculty and guest artists, but also to interact with the international community of the Scuola. During the year, emerging and established artists from all over the world, come to the Scuola as resident artists. Sharing the studios with such personalities offers students the opportunity to work and interact with highly experienced artists. In addition, the students will be encouraged to apply for participation in national and international Printmaking and Book-Arts exhibitions.
