Students will participate in a creative and productive atmosphere for two weeks under the guidance of our international awarded team of tutors. Based on a practical approach, students will undergo a personal approach to the creative process, within one of Europe´s most beautiful and oldest cities, in recent years several times awarded Europe´s Best Destination.

The two weeks course will appeal to participants who want to develop their personal visual language and want to experiment new techniques either with traditional mediums, like silk-screening and etching or digital drawing ranging from character design and hand-lettering illustration to Urban Sketching.
