Sacred Art

The 1st level Professional Master course and the Specialization course in Sacred Art aim to train experts in the sacred art field which is deeply rooted in the culture and tradition of our country and represents a big part of the Italian artistic heritage.

Each participant will be able to create and produce contemporary artworks related to the Christian tradition bythe end of the course. Great attention is given to art and craft techniques (painting, sculpture, goldsmith- ing) which will be integrated with theoretical subjects and will make students able to interpret past and pre- sent sacred art, not only in aesthetic terms but also in its symbolic meaning and usage.


The 1st level Professional Master is taught in blended learning and consists of online and in-person sessionsorganized in 3 specializations:

 

  1. painting,
  2. sculpture,
  3. goldsmithing
