Contemporary Painting Techniques This course is designed to introduce students to the use of new languages, through the study of materials (plastic, various canvases, wood, metal) and painting techniques, ranging from the old traditional colors to the use of mixed techniques (such as color applied with sponge, spatulas and rollers). The combination of new support and painting techniques will help the student to develop a new language and personal painting style. Drawing This course aims to develop basic drawing skills, recognizing form, space, and light. The students will be introduced to the use of various materials such as: charcoal, sanguigna and pencil. Students will work from direct observation and by using these various materials, they will learn to interpret the form of still life and figure drawings with live models. Interior Design The course is aimed at students who are interested in interior design and who want to understand technical and constructional aspects of interior spaces, the methodologies of elaborating the concept of a project and its appropriate representation. The approach is not only technical, but creative, artistic and intuitive. The fundamentals of the course are aimed at providing knowledge of various interior styles, the study of solutions in furnishing, the materials used and the various possibilities in fabrics; patterns, colors and shades. Fashion Design The Fashion Design course aims to introduce students to fashion through multiple pathways, helping them not only to enhance their practical skills for Fashion Design and illustration, but also to acquire a more specific and multifaceted sensitivity toward anything that involves fashion, such as, new trends, technical clothing aspects/styles, influences of history on clothes and the theoretical approaches to develop and create fashion collections. Fashion Marketing In today’s modern society Fashion is one of the best means of communication for expressing an individual or collective identity. It is also a complete expression of society and human behavior. Through fashion, we can understand the trends of society. This course is an overview on the latest trends of economy and society in general, applied specifically to the fashion world. Commercial Photography This course introduces students to the use of the digital camera and digital photography. Students will use computers and applications for editing and adjusting photos. This course is designed to give the students a thorough knowledge of fundamental photography techniques such as depth of field, motion and angle of field. They will deal with topics such as landscape, portraits, architecture, and nocturnal photography. The course also provides a wide study on composition and framing. Film and videomaking The Film Making course is based on a simplified practical approach. Cinematography, Screenwriting, Directing, Sound and Editing are the principal topics the students will analyze during their stay. The course explores the creative processes involved in producing an intriguing and marketable script; it explores how professional directors take the script to the screen and how they direct the energies of the cast and crew; it explains how to use cinematography equipment and how to give structure, form, rhythm, and pace to a movie. 3D Animation In the 3D Animation program, on the other hand, computers take center stage. While you’ll still be drawing your characters and scenes, your pen will actually be a stylus, and your canvas, a high-resolution screen. Game Art The Online BFA Degree in Game Art is a professional degree for students needing remote access to the educational requirements for careers in the video game industry. Graphic Design The online BFA Degree in Graphic Design is designed for students needing remote access to the educational requirements for careers in Communication Design and related media.
