The specialisation course in Sacred Art aims at training experts in the sacred art sector. This art sector is deeply rooted in the culture and tradition of our country and represents a strong proportion of the Italian artistic heritage.
This course is part of the professional master course in sacred arts containing also laboratory activities.
Theoretical subjects will provide students with the ability to interpret past and present sacred art not only in aesthetic terms but also in relation to its symbolic meaning and usage.
The course is delivered online.
By the end of the course, each participant will be able to create and produce contemporary art works in line with the Christian tradition. Great attention is devoted to the acquisition of artistic and artisan techniques (painting, sculpture, goldsmithing) integrated with theoretical subjects that will provide students with the ability to interpret past and present sacred art, not only in aesthetic terms but also in relation to its symbolic meaning and usage.
The specialisation course in Sacred Arts is born out of the collaboration between IUL online university and the Sacred art school of Florence. The course aims at training experts in the sacred art sector providing competences to conceive and realise contemporary artworks, in line with the Christian tradition.
The pathway is suggested for graduate students, teachers of history of arts, religion, philosophy, responsible people of sacred arts in dioceses, tour guides and all those wishing to deepen theoretical aspects of sacred arts.
