Fifth Studio of Drawing and Painting Basics
Type of the course: studio
Status of classes: obligatory
Evaluation method: overview of semester finished with getting a mark
Terms of admission to the studio: admission to the first year of study
Curriculum of the studio focuses from the beginning on student’s individual
predispositions progress, and his private language as well as it formulates distinct work
methods in the studio, not relying on schemes, but “evolving”, depending on the
commitment, creativity and student’s artistic abilities.
Teaching methods, form of classes
Work method with first and second year students is based on the individual correction.
What is more, studio is a forum for discussion and critical reflection, that is why cyclic
overviews of student’s works and presentations of different attitudes of contemporary
artists are organised, as a context, benchmark and source of inspiration. Thematic and
intercollegiate plein-airs, trips to the most important presentations of contemporary art
are organised for the studio due to these reasons as well. Art teaching cannot be
confined only to the walls of the Academy.
The final grade is based on the works of students which are responses to all thematic
tasks obligatory for that semester.
