Italian through Art - Women artists in the history of Italian painting - Part 2

This workshop will focus on Italian women artists of the 18th and the
19th century.

Women in art had always played a marginal role, but when they decided to devote themselves to painting, they took all the responsibilities and sometimes went against everything and everyone. Only in recent times they have begun to receive the attention and the right value that their art deserved from the start.

In this virtual workshop we will consider some of these professional painters, who earned their living through their art: Giovanna Fratellini, Rosalba Carriera, Giulia Elisabetta Lama, Maria Martinetti Stiavelli, Amanzia Guerillot.

This workshop seeks to offer the opportunity to improve knowledge of Italian Art and language (if you know or study Italian) through art and visual stimuli and bespoke didactic material. The  workshop is suitable to everybody as it will be given both in Italian and in English.

Duration: 15.00-16.30 (1½ hours)
Location: Online
Date: 22 October 2022
Fee: £24

Level:
For all levels. Students will be grouped according to their knowledge of Italian. The workshop will be given both in Italian and English.

Class size: From a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 8 students per group.

Strano & Sorprendente - a collection of unusual courses

Italian Through Italy
Let’s go to Italy, virtually. If you cannot go to Italy, we will bring Italy to you. Let’s explore the life, the food, the culture and the history of the Italian regions, through the eyes and the experience of one of tutors originally from the region on the spot.

The region which we will be covering this month is Molise, up to now a rather unknown territory with many curiosities and traditions to talk about.

Literature and teaching material will be sent to the participants after the workshop. Given in Italian and English, this special workshop is for everybody. Just come along to absorb La Dolce Vita, il Bel Paese and la Divina Lingua.

Writing Workshop

Improve your written Italian

The small group sessions will exclusively focus on written Italian. Each session is charged for 1 hour, half an hour of which will be spent with a tutor to work on pre-task activities, explore the building blocks of good writing and spelling exercises ("ortografia"). In each Zoom meeting the tutor will assign a different essay for the students to write at home and which will be individually corrected (hence the other 30 minutes of the hour). The tutor will help to identify areas for writing and structure development, with corrections and explanation of any grammar/spelling mistakes to enrich your vocabulary.

The essays will deal with different types of writing (creative writing, letters/emails, stories, reviews) and will be an invaluable help for CILS exam candidates, GCSE & A' level Italian students, or simply for anybody who likes to write and knows they would benefit from language inputs and advice to write in a foreign language.

Also the following aspects will be dealt with: Punctuation & Spelling

Duration: 30 minutes per session + 30 minutes homework assignment

Fee: £21 (per session)

Also the following aspects will be dealt with:
