Fine Arts sector

From 19th to 25th of July 2016 the team of the Associazione Art. Cult. “A Rocca and Eprojectconsult International department, in cooperation with Volkshochschule Olching e.V. hosted 2 selected participants from Germany in the frame of Erasmus+ programme.

They took part in the training course about Fine Arts, held in the town of Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto.

Sicily, thanks to its historical past rich in various types of arts, which had taken the role of mediation between the different cultures found on the island. The participants were introduced to different styles by Sicilian artist during the workshops, and they had the chance to create their own works of art. The course consisted of 4 different type of professional seminars: photography, sculpture, painting and a sunset clay workshop.

During photography sessions with Santino Trifilò, they learned different type of techniques, settings and important rules, which are essential for a good photo. It was followed by individual practice. They analyzed the pictures in a photography studio and got introduced to some post production as well.

Sculptural techniques were introduced by Sicilian artist Maurizio Calabrò. The participants were invited to sculpt the head of David, with absolutely amazing results.

The summer house for creation of Mimma Nicolosi Palana with its garden and relaxing atmosphere was the perfect choice for a workshop of clay. They created perfectly functioning whistles, and enjoyed the view of the beautiful sea and sunset.

The painting course, introduced by Mariano Pietrini took part in the magical Parco Jalari, near Barcellona P.G., in an insipirng environment.

We hope their stay in Sicily was enriching in professional, personal, and cultural way as well, thanks to their trips in the island, and the welcoming restaurants and people of Sicily.
