Many credits from the offered programs can transfer over and serve as a stepping stone towards a higher-level academic degree.

The duration and tuition fees for each program will vary depending on the field of study, school and the country in which the institution is located. Students should contact the admissions office directly to learn more information and the associated costs.

Curatorial Studies at KASK considers curation – from the latin ‘cura’, to care for – to be a vital link between cultural production and the wider social sphere. In this expanded definition the curatorial crosses the entire spectrum of cultural production, from historical and artistic research to the documentation and archives of displays and the organisation of events. At KASK, Curatorial Studies students are confronted with the diverse possibilities of the curatorial – from the collection, conservation and study of modern and contemporary art to developing news ways of making art public through on- and off-line displays, publications, pedagogical, social and performative projects. -

Student and graduate work are directly affected by the philosophy, teaching methodology, and physical structure of the studio in which it is created. A distinguishing characteristic of The Florence Academy of Art is that we require all our students to work from life under natural north light, in the tradition of the masters of the past whom we admire: Titian, Rembrandt, Velázquez, and Sargent, to name a few. Our students do not idly copy their subjects but instead, learn to translate nature in a way that is both anatomically accurate and artistically beautiful. Long poses may last three hours a day, five days a week for four or five weeks. This gives artists time to work out problems and produce a competent drawing or painting. Natural light allows students to select a specific area of the painting to keep in sharp focus while peripheral areas remain out of focus, just as the eye sees in nature: there are no edges in natural light, but soft gradations of light to dark. A sight-size method is a helpful tool, and we apply it in the early stages of the curriculum when students are learning measurement, proportion, and shadow shape. Artists at the advanced levels are taught to apply comparative measurements when necessary. -
