Schola Artis Pro Vobis

Italian Language + painting

Italian Language + Painting Workshop

with Elisa BASSETTI

The Italian language course is divided into two parts: standard Italian and Italian for Arts.

The second part is preparatory to the Art workshops.

We will start from a lexical dimension: colors, shapes, physical description, landscape, naming the objects.

Our goal will be then to formulate more complex descriptions.

The program includes original and exclusive materials created on purpose.

Artelingua Language School is the culmination of experienced certified Italian language teachers

who have joined together to offer proven Italian full-immersion for non-Italians.

Elisa Bassetti, Artelingua’s Director, is a qualified Italian language teacher, specialized in teaching Italian Language and Culture as a second and foreign language from the University for Foreigners of Perugia and Siena as well.

She has worked as an Instructional designer on the e-learning program of the University for Foreigners of P Perugia and in 2021 founded Artelingua in her hometown of Spoleto.

This course also includes the painting or watercolor workshop with Arnhild Kart

(see painting and watercolor page of the menu)
