Extra-Academic Portrait

We will work on the portrait in a multidisciplinary way, using different supports, techniques and materials. We will distance ourselves from the academic method to know different graphic and drawing procedures.

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


  • Experience new resources and graphic procedures.
  • Distance yourself from the traditional method of approaching drawing and painting.
  • Work the portrait in a more expressive and intuitive way.
  • Add colours to your personal palette.

Registrations are open all year, and we admit new students at the beginning of each term. Depending on the trimestre in which the students wish to join, there are different closing dates for registration. The minimum enrolment time is always one term, and from there, each student can renew their registration for one or more terms. Students can pursue their studies on a continuous basis, or choose to space their registrations.


  • Students may join at the beginning of a term [October-January-March]. See school calendar.
  • Applications will only be accepted online [form available at the bottom of this section, and in the upper left margin of the course page] or by filling out the form in the Academy itself.
  • The estimated response time of the Admissions Department is between 2 and 15 days.
  • For the admission process, all applications received before the end date will be taken into account, even if the student has not received an immediate response after the application was sent. Applications received after the deadline will be placed in the waiting list for the requested trimestre.
  • In the eventuality that there is no free places in the requested trimestre, the application will automatically be moved to the next term.
  • Due dates for submitting applications:

Fall term: July 10
Winter term: November 30
Spring term: February 28

Payment system

  • All payments are to be made by bank transfer to the account number specified in the confirmation email.
  • Once the student is admitted, you will be asked to confirm the booking through the payment of a non-refundable deposit. The non-refundable deposit corresponds to 10% of the total of the course.
  • The rest of the enrolment must be paid within the dates specified in the confirmation email at the rate of one payment per trimestre, and always in advance. In case of not paying the non-refundable deposit, the place will be automatically available for another student.
  • Students may request a refund (except the amount of the non-refundable deposit) that will be resolved in accordance with the school’s internal policy.
  • Any change applied once the student’s place is confirmed will involve the payment of an administrative fee.
  • Long periods of unjustified absence do not entail the reimbursement of the amount of the course.
