1. Drawing & Painting
Divinity has always been an inspiration in the arts, whether we consider the Divine Trinity or the Parnassus. When talking about cooking, don’t we say “It was a divine dish”? Accademia Amsterdam takes this theme as a starting point for the 2019 edition.
Course participants will get professional guidance from a qualified tutor. Whether you are experienced or you want to give it a try; you are welcome to subscribe to one or more courses. The drawing and painting courses will take place in the open air, in the historical centre or the surroundings of Perugia or between the works of art in the “Palazzo della Penna”. Subjects can be architectural elements, people in the streets, still lives and so called “vedute” of the poetic landscape. The course participants can try several drawing or painting techniques at wish: charcoal, ink, pencil, wax pastels or (oil/acrylic) paint. But feel free to choose your own subject(s).
The course participants can present the drawings and paintings at the final concert.
Duration of the course: 1 to 5 days (as desired).
2. Traditional Italian cooking
The cooking courses will be dedicated to the traditional Italian cuisine, from “devine” appetizers to desserts. It highlights the evolution from country cooking to the most technologically advanced kitchen. We will pay attention to the preparation of fresh pastas and homemade pastries. After the first course day, we adapt the courses to the needs of the participants, asking them which recipes and techniques they would like to learn. At request, you can cook rural dishes of the Baroque era, following the original recipes. The courses are taking place in the well-equiped kitchen of professional cook Cinzia Ubaldi, very close to the “Palazzo della Penna”.
During the course-week, participants can enjoy the results of the cooking course at lunch or at the common dinner.
Duration of the course: 1 to 4 days (as desired).
