Upon successful completion of the course, students will:
-Have further developed their rendering of the visible subject with color, using oil on canvas in life sizes (180x150cm). They will be able to render the live subjects that are set up in the studio (human model, composition of objects), with increased requirements compared to the first semester, in terms of quality.
-Have become familiar with the use of watercolor on paper, and will be able to use it as a preparatory blueprint for larger studies as well as a final color study in studies from nature and the natural environment.
-Be able to gradually integrate in their painting values such as plasticity, depth, texture, transparency, atmosphere, direction.
-Have become familiar with the terminology of the visual arts on a technical and theoretical level.
Course Content (Syllabus)
Further development on the rendering of a visible subject in the studio with color, using oil on canvas in life sizes (180x150cm). The live topics that are set up in the studio (model, composition of objects) are rendered, with increased demands compared to the first semester, in terms of quality.
More demanding study exercises with watercolor on paper are added, which can be done either in the studio or in the natural environment (nature exercises).
Students' research on the evolution of painting in the history of Art, and its place today. The research is done with bibliography in the library, on the internet and through visits to museums, galleries, Art Fairs, and Biennials of Contemporary Art.
In the form of seminars, emphasis is placed on issues of professional practice (creating a portfolio, organizing exhibitions, etc.) in order to pose problems and develop students' potential within the artistic professional space.
