Made in Italy
Although digiQualia is undoubtedly a very international education center, it was born in Florence, Italy, home of the Renaissance and delicious gelato. Our current headquarters are still placed in Florence, a location that gives us easy access not only to great art collections and the surrounding architecture that goes with it, but the students, teachers and artists that pilgrimage here.
Naturally, the city offers some of the best schools in regards to fine arts, like The Florence Academy of Art and the Charles H. Cecil Studios, at the same time as providing more contemporary stimulance, like at the Accademia D’Arte and Polimoda.
With such an exceptional work environment, we have the luxury of being constantly stimulated by the work of the old masters as we keep discovering new, exciting talent. A major part of digiQualia might be dedicated to academic art, but the material is fresh.
The internet is nothing less than a never ending erruption of information. Amongst the lava you can easily scoop up instructions, news, recipes and tutorials, some refined and some less trustworthy than others.
So what makes digiQualia any different from other portals you´ve come across? We provide high quality tutorials at very reasonable prices. But high quality is a standard we regard as an absolute minimum. And we don´t do it for the money.
The strong foundation we have created are rooted in these three Q’s:
- Team Symbiosis
Everyone that contributes to the digiQualia team is an active artist. Whether it’s painters, illustrators or animators, the studio is run by artists and designers, giving us the direct appreciation and understanding for the tutorials we create.
- Academic Teaching
Most of the tutouring you find online is dominated by software related teachings.
At digiQualia we offer a strong approach to the academic arts, covering the fields of fine art drawing,
painting, sculpting and classical music, as well as photography and illustrative design.
- Art vs the Artist
The technique is a big part of our education, but it lives side by side with the notion of deciphering why the artist makes the choices that he/she does. This understanding is an equally important feature in the tutorials, as well as in all the additional free material available in the artists’ portfolio.
