Course Description

A studio course focused on drawing from direct observation of Italian masterworks and examination of their impact on contemporary practice in northern Italy. Students will study early to late Italian Renaissance and their connections/resistance to contemporary works at venues like the Bienalle, Strozzina, and MARCO. Critiques and study of drawings created during the course will help students understand how the Italian Masters laid the foundation for our understanding of Western art and how these might shape students’ creative works.
