“From the Idea to the Product”

The contamination of Art and Science has proved to be successful in many domains over the centuries and it has reached its peak in the Renaissance, that infact has always been a model for innovation, “even better than Silicon Valley today”, in the opinion of researchers such as Eric Weiner.
As the debate about how to classify Management and Entrepreneurship, whether in the field of Sciences or in the field of Arts, has been endless and still left unsolved, and in the meantime generations and generations of people get stuck in this dilemma and sometimes, even lost, when they have to make a decision about their career…this year we will give our contribution to the research on this topic with a Certificate Program created in collaboration with Campus Citta’ del Sapere and Centro Sperimentale di Arte Contemporanea IS.Ca.PI, which aims at providing a full immersion experience in the daily life of the Renaissance Artist....

THIS COURSE IN HELD IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
Gathering visions and original ideas around a specific theme, the Biennale of Venice act as a sort of mirror to look at the contemporaneity in a very original way, both for art and for architectural aspects.
“Freespace” is the title chosen by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara for the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, but it is also a word to describe the “sense of humanity located at the core of architecture, looking at the essential quality of space and at its embodied power and beauty”.
Starting from this statement, the course proposed by IED Venezia explores the relation between space and art, looked from different points of view and prospective, through specific visits and meetings....

The course helps prepare students to learn to confront the creative challenges of elaborating illustrations with content and form.
What has not changed over the years is that personal struggle each illustrator endures in trying to express content in his or her work. Developing a personal style is based on two demanding processes: being able to take creative risks and learning a fundamental ability - drawing.
Illustration has been around for a long time and since the appearance of digital programs, this art form (if we can call it that) has diversified itself and helped open the door for new creative jobs in many different areas (Internet, television, publishing, medicine, sciences, newspapers, theatre, magazines, cinema, corporations, advertising, etc).
Drawing is a natural impulse that manifests itself in childhood. In this course we want to take advantage of this drive to experiment with different techniques, materials

Drawing is a natural impulse that manifests itself in childhood. In this course we want to take advantage of this drive to experiment with different techniques, materials and formats.
