Silly & simple, but nicely done.

Yeah simple and it works though I'm not sure if this'll really hook artists to join that school. It's so clean and clinical.

Also it's a bit weird for an Italian show to use an American and Spanish artist and say "Artists born here".

There's really nothing that works in this ad. Why Dalí???? He's Spanish. He didn't study at civita art school. Civita is not an art school for kids.
Why didn't you use a panda then?

cute and funny. But I won't join the school by seeing this ad.

Ragazzi, ma vi siete accorti che dagli anni '80 sono passati 30 anni o no?
E poi con i bambini camuffati hanno già fatto di tutto.
Mi aspetto più originalità dalle nuove agenzie. Peccato.

(Very basic ad)

Yes, it's silly, but it will work for a general audience.

this is a nice insight - but def needs to represent the artists more, this is very safe in today's artistic world!

"ooh I know, let's put a Dali-ish 'stash on a baby, yeah that's the artist". Too cheap.

Nice idea. I am sick of the complains like "Oh my god dalì is spanish he did not study at THAT SCHOOL"
Are you serious? If you always apply this way of thinking, EVERY adv campaign makes no sense. Come out of your shell :)

I like the concept, however I think it would have been better with new born infants instead of toddlers.
