Academy day programme.
Nania Simone, born in Legnano (MI) on 14 July 1980, studies traditional drawing and painting since his adolescence, coming into his own in his father’s workshop, Sandro Nania, himself a painter of the same classical-figurative formation, and master of informal and expressionist paintings.
The Milan Academy of Art wants to shape professional artists, aware of the lack of an effective teaching method in universities and public art schools. Even in Europe, where some old vestige method of drawing from plaster mould and still life oil painting remain, official schools do not have the knowledge to be teaching realism effectively. The Milan Academy of Art has structured a concrete teachable programme through a series of exercises for a study period of 2 years, the student learns to master such technique.
The study programme, fundamental to learning has evolved from a combination of research of the founder of the Milan Academy of Art, inspired by the French Academy of the XIX century. The programme begins with a series of specially selected lithographies, these rapidly teach the student the basic abilities for an accurate rendering. The Academy uses the best set of didactic drawings: realised by Charles Bargue in the 19th century, upon Jean-Léon Gérôme’s request. With these basic skills, the student proceeds to a work of fusion, first using charcoal, then oil painting. From these, the student will go on to learn still life, the best arena to study colour, texture and three dimensional illusion. Immediately from the first trimester the students begins the work of live model, fundamental to our programme.
The study programme will allow students to approach art with confidence and overcome the most difficult projects of drawing and painting. Utilising the skills, techniques, knowledge and approach taught at the Milan Academy of Art.
The method of the Academy is that of individuality in a group context. Each student is assessed on a continuous basis and will advance largely in measure of invested time and study. Since the programme is a succession of carefully selected projects, the previous formation and the experience of a student do not influence the assigned work; the speed with which one advances depends solely on the speed of learning. In general, the atmosphere of the Milan Academy of Art is friendly and relaxed. The competition is friendly and there is a feeling of support and respect between the students as well as the professors: their goals are, after all, reciprocal.
