In this five-day course students will explore the creative process of Venetian Masters using similar methods to Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese. Students will observe their masterpieces during a Museum visit, and gain an understanding of techniques developing in a short span of time but setting apart Venetian painting as a perennial influence upon subsequent artistic practices. Students will follow procedures used in Renaissance Venice, guided through the stages of execution from preparatory drawing to completed work in oils, and produce their own version of a Venetian masterpiece.
