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, and art history, attending the study programme of one of the most prestigious Academies of Fine Arts and Communication in Rome, whilst enriching their education and curriculum.

The programme 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 domes are designed through laboratory activities, photography lessons which will introduce students to the photography language and its techniques, to create visual projects through outdoor experiences.

During the programme 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 experiences.

RUFA has three summer camp sessions planned for the summer of 2024: 17 to 28 June; 1 to 12 July and 15 to 26 July.

At the end of the course, a certificate of attendance is issued to those who have attended at least 80% of the lessons. All sessions will be based on the same programme.

Make your dome! The dome has a long history in the built environment and has been a design feature of many different types of architecture and design around the world. Domes are prominent features of Persian, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, and Italian Renaissance architecture. The workshop aims to combine the idea of the dome, which is a self-supporting architectural element, with the identity elements of the participants. The participants will make the dome and personalize it attributing different concepts and functions.
