Courses

In the courses which familiarize students with the nature of artistic works and processes, insights in the structure and development of artistic production, reception, and reflection are gained. Students also learn about the language of form and colour, as well as about the particular nature and development of artistic creativity. In dealing with these topics, examples of modern art are viewed and students gain insights into the important developmental tendencies and conceptual problems of art as well.

The courses in didactics, which relate to the topics mentioned above, familiarize students with the nature, structure, and development of pedagogically guided processes and the particular nature of their results. Through various types of practical training in schools as well as through participation in non school-related projects, students turn theory into practice and gain knowledge through individual experience. The artistic, practical training is conceptually connected with contemporary art and provides a variety of possibilities for artistic expression. Different types of techniques, from drawing, painting, and printing techniques, to techniques for object art, calligraphy, installation art, performance art, multimedia design (ex. video), as well as techniques for commercial art crafts and design are learned in class and can become the foundations for individual exploration. During the course of studies, working independently and intensely in selected areas becomes increasingly important.
