Course Content (Syllabus)
The class includes combined exercises with ceramic sculpture, clay, plaster, marble, metal, wood, resins, and various materials, that integrate critical thinking with artistic practice during the creation of three-dimensional objects. Students further develop a critical discourse both on their work as well as on the other artists.
In this semester observation studies on human figures from the live model are concluded. The aim to further enhance students’ ability to address issues on form and content in sculpture in their personal artistic vocabulary, that will serve as a tool for producing a contemporary sculptural proposal in the following years, remains.
Extended students’ research on contemporary sculpture and its place in the present. Presentation of a specific topic focused on contemporary sculptors and trends through which the students will further develop their artistic research by using bibliography from the library, visits to museums, art spaces, and the internet.
Artistic activities and exhibitions are organized, in collaboration with social and educational institutes to enhance both students' artistic and educational skills.
