Live the unique experience of the Creative Summer camp.
The Creative Summer camp is aimed at young international and Italian students who want to live a unique experience in the Eternal City and study painting, design, photography, cinema and art history, attending the study program of one of the most prestigious Academies of Fine Arts and Communication in Rome, whilst enriching their education and curriculum.

The program includes a combination of drawing lessons, which envision an introduction to art and gesture drawing and the composition of the human figure; painting lessons, which focus on the use of materials and painting techniques, the simplification of the image and abstract synthesis; design lessons during which the theme of sustainability is addressed and futuristic cities are designed through laboratory activities, photography lessons which will introduce students to the photography language and its techniques, film-making lessons which will focus on the techniques to create audiovisual projects through outdoor experiences.

During the program guided tours will be organized to show students some of the most significant places in the city of Rome: museums, ancient and modern monuments, craft shops and street-food.

RUFA has two summer camp sessions planned for the summer of 2023: 19 to 30 June and 3 to 14 July. Both sessions will be based on the same programme.

At the end of the course, a certificate of attendance is issued to those who have attended at least 80% of the lessons.
