Course Content (Syllabus)
The 8th, like the 7th semester, focuses on the pursuit of an aesthetic result where individual research is prominent. It consists of essays, student presentations, round table discussions in view of strengthening research content, critical thinking, professionalism, and preparing the ground of a more scientific approach of individual practice. The course programme includes: a) art events, galleries and museums visits, b) visiting lecturers, c) participation in art shows, d) visiting artists and art-theorists for tutorials, e) collaborations with other departments/workshops or external university departments of Fine Art. At the same time, the 8th semester is dedicated to the language and training of digital printing and design software; a training that will be confirmed by the extensive student research upon all photographic Printmaking processes, so far.
