Art weekends

During the year, normally on weekends, we organise plein air painting and drawing classes and visits to the most important art exhibitions in Italy. Workshops are focused on the landscape study experimenting the techniques both of drawing and painting and will be taught by the artist Antonio Postacchini. The exhibitions to visit will be chosen for their specific teaching content of painting techniques.

Engraving course

Etching, Drypoint and Soft ground.
This course is conceived for anyone wishing to learn or to improve the skills of etching, drypoint and soft ground.
These old traditional processes have already been applied during the Middle Ages for illustrating religious books and later during the Renaissance have become the main method to reproduce and divulge the Italian art masterpieces and, particularly with Rembrandt, turned into being expressive mediums of a work of art.
By virtue of Giorgio Morandi’s mastery, Bologna may be seen as one of the main centres of this art form which requires a big effort but gives amazing rewards.
With this course we aim to find out together all technical skills for obtaining zinc etching prints in a studio supplied with all necessary tools, including a printing press.

Duration: 10 lessons of 3 hours
Attendance: Thursday – 9.30 to 12.30
Price: 150€ + 10€ annual membership card
Course location: via G. Onofri, 4/A – Bologna
