Accademia Riaci

Master Program in Painting and Drawing

Taught in Italian or English

The Master Course in Painting and Drawing in Accademia Riaci is an intensive course of study. We seek advanced students who are highly motivated, self-directed, and committed to the disciplines of painting and drawing. Our Master students work closely with a dedicated faculty of many professors who, in their own work, represent a broad range of contemporary painting and drawing.

We encourage the cultivation and examination of each student’s individual vision within the discipline. Instruction is conducted primarily by the tutorial method. Candidates work independently in their studios with oversight provided by faculties. At the end of a year, the faculties meet with each student to appraise progress towards the diploma. These tutorials are supplemented with graduate classes. A Seminar is also offered, which focuses on diverse issues and fosters interaction among Master students across studio disciplines. A comprehensive education in drawing and painting stresses both breadth and depth.

An awareness of the breadth of what is being done in the present and what has been done in the past encourages students to relate their own practice to both the current context and earlier historical ones. With this in mind, we require the study of art history, theory, and criticism to complement studio work. Our program majors and Master students profit by the experience of a rigorous conservatory education compounded with the breadth of exposure that such Accademia Riaci affords. The one-year of study toward the Master in Fine Arts culminates in a thesis exhibition.
