Here are some questions related to our courses and facilities that SoA Academy students frequently ask. If you
can’t find an answer to your doubts, send us an email and we’ll give you a reply soon. There are no silly
questions but only clever answers.
Novice courses are for artists who are moving the first steps in the Architectural
Visualisation field and need the basic knowledge to start from scratch. If you want to start learning
losing further time, these are the courses for you.
The Advanced Courses are for artists who have some kind of experience in the 3D world
and they want to improve their productivity and skills on specific areas. If you want to reach the top in a
short time, these are the courses for you.
The workshop are advanced courses meant for artists who have experience and want to
prove themselves through a set of practical exercises. Space to practice with the advise of the teachers.
Masterclasses are the most complete courses at Academy and are meant for artists who
want to learn an efficient workflow to create images and architectural videos. From 10 to 100 in few weeks.
The choice of the course depends on you, your skills, your interest and the time you have at your disposal. For example, if you don’t have much time and want to develop specific topics, look at our Advanced courses (the ArchViz is the best if you want to improve lighting and rendering, the Post-production is the best choice if you want to work with photoshop). Anyway, we remind you that the Masterclass is the most complete course we offer because it covers important topics in the Architectural Visualization.
Go to the “calendar” page in our website, click on the course you want to apply and fill the form. As soon as we receive your request, we’ll send you an email with the instructions for the payment and the contract to complete your registration. Once you’ve made the payment, send us a receipt of the bank transfer and the contract signed. This is the only way to book a seat.
No, we don’t. The Academy team likes being in contact with the students to instantly solve any kind of problem that might arise. We also think that a face-to-face course is the best way to establish a good relationship with the guys who, in the end, become part of the Academy family. This is the reason why, we don’t have any online courses.
The English level used doesn’t require a deep knowledge of the language. The software interfaces are in English and the terms are strictly related to the Architectural Visualization field. Although the teachers are Italian, you don’t need to know Italian to attend a course (unless it is an Italian one).
No, we don’t. Anyway, we are often asked by Italian and worldwide Companies for talented Artists to insert in their Studios. We always pass these offers on to our (ex) students and if they’re interested, they can contact the Studios directly.
Yes, it can. If we don’t reach the minimum number of registrations necessary to make the course start (4/5 people), the course might be cancelled. The people who have already registered will be contacted and they will be able to choose among other options.
Academy will provide all the materials necessary to attend the courses: notepad, pencil, pen, workstation with the relevant softwares, graphic tablet, keyboard and mouse. We suggest you to take a hard disk with you to save the files you’ve been working on in the course.
