Usually, the painting instruction starts by preparing a drawing, which is then transferred to canvas and completed with watercolors, acrylics or oil colors. The teacher guides each student individually, and helps each person to find the most appropriate subject, style and technique according to his or her artistic experience, preferences and inspiration.
The course program may teach the copying of drawings of the great masters of the Renaissance (Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael etc.) which helps to acquire a proper sense of the line and shapes, and the use of "light and shade", one of the characteristics of the Florentine school in the XVI century. Alternatively, the curriculum of the course may be on mixed techniques, sculpture or the use of gold leaf.
Developing a personal style and expression is encouraged.
