Learning Outcomes
The class seeks to cultivate the student's overall visual artistic background by focusing on their research on drawing. Through daily practice in the studios, and through seminars that approach contemporary issues around drawing, with visits to Museums and Galleries in Greece and abroad, as well as through lectures and visits to studios of known artists, students are invited to develop a visual language through drawing, which will form the basis of their original artistic proposal in the coming years. With the successful completion of the course, the students are expected to: -have largely solved issues on observation and ability to achieve proportions, light flux, composition, successful handling of materials such as charcoal, pencil, graphite, ink, pastel and others, given specific live visual subjects each semester (human figure, still life etc.) -Develop the ability to process a visual idea and bring it forward through drawing. -Develop the ability to bring together form and content of an artistic product so that it approaches the idea of a work of art. -Understand and use terminology of the visual arts at a technical and theoretical level. -Develop their imagination and creativity for technical implementation in their work. -Ability to teach drawing and organize drawing workshops. In the form of seminars, emphasis is placed on issues of professional practice (creating portfolios, organizing exhibitions, etc.) in order to address problems, and develop their potential within the artistic profession.
