Certification required for intermediate levels

Each course is, for its peculiarity, complete in and of itself, as well as preparatory for the following course. Every stage of study has been conceived to provide a gradual preparation for the following step. This means that no student will be admitted to the upper courses without first having earned certification in the previous course. The speed at which he earns his certificates will vary according to his aptitude and dedication. Each course will represent a patrimony of knowledge and preparation for both the beginner and for the student with even a minimum of experience, an authentic turning point in his knowledge, which will take him into a completely new dimension. The study program is a tough and passionate path, fit for anyone who really wants to enter the world of figurative arts with a professional outlook, because the academic program is a veritable master’s degree. At the end of each academic year of 9 MONTHS, on achieving the objectives contemplated, a CERTIFICATE for the academic level completed is awarded. For further information, the following chart refers to the academic program, and lists the average time in months employed by the student in earning the certificate.
