A good practical course

Ok, so I did a program in Contemporary Art last year. Maria, the Academy director, got to know that I am looking for a job after my Masters, she put me in touch with one of the lecturers and I got a job at a big Art Fair. Super excited! So can definitely recommend the course because of the networking opportunities. In general,I had a very good experience in Venice. We visited museums, local galleries and art residences. You get a pretty good understanding of the art market and current trends.

How can this program be improved?
It is intense! They could give us a little bit more time to discover Venice.
Yes, I recommend this program
