The Intensive Summer Studio in Drawing and Painting is structured in
three sequential parts and accepts international and national students with
previous training aiming to explore and render more substantial the
orientation of their work. Two or three tutors will be present at every
session (depending on need) and provide individual commentary according to
each participant's personal pace and the degree of development of his/her
work. Sessions will be conducted in both English and Portuguese.
Selected works may integrate the "Fall Exhibition/Open Studio" of Ar.Co,
in September 2012.
