INTRODUCTION TO LEVEL 1

Visual Development Master courses are available both online in live streaming and on-site.

 

The online live streaming version is the same integral experience as the on-site version with the same features, including access to IDEA's recruiting services and to recruiting events as well. It will include dedicated platforms and channels to facilitate the delivery of assignments and communication with both your fellow students and your teachers.

Students that prefer the on-site experience will be able to immerse themselves in the Italian lifestyle and enjoy together with their colleagues and teachers all the museum visits and life drawing sessions that we periodically organize. Students on-site have also access to the school facilities to study and ask support in person.

 

Our one-year program is designed for passionate individuals looking for a career in the entertainment industry. The course is made of 3 modules; each module runs for 12 weeks. Students must complete all 3 modules in order to graduate.

Thanks to Anthony Christov's expertise and guidance as Director of Academic Studies, each module will cover all the skills needed to work in a professional environment as an artist and team member through the development of one or more collaborative projects.

Our students will have the chance to take inspiration from the countless artworks and historical architectures of Rome, the eternal city, where they will have the chance to breathe the air of ancient Rome and taste the real Italian lifestyle.
