Extra-Academic Portrait

In the Extra-academic Portrait course, you will be working on the portrait in a multidisciplinary way, using different supports, techniques and materials. We will distance ourselves from the academic method to learn about different graphic and drawing procedures.

We will approach the course from the expressive drawing and incorporate new materials and techniques that will take us gradually to the technique of ‘alla prima’ painting. In Italian, ‘alla prima’ means ‘in a single time’ or ‘to the first’ and refers to the method of painting in an application and without retouching, also known as ‘direct painting’.
