subject description
  • Cognitive objectives: Gaining knowledge about the use of different techniques supportive to traditional drawing techniques
  • Educative objectives: Having the possibility to use various drawing tools a student understands drawing not only as a method of reproducing reality but a mean of artistic expression that can trigger imaginative spheres and produce various interpretations; searching for one’s individual creative form of expression
  • Pragmatic objectives: Understanding rules of teamwork; learning to share the common space of a studio
short subject description

The purpose of all issues and tasks taken up during class is to develop students’ drawing skills, widen their artistic consciousness and gradually move them from the area of interpreting nature in the direction of perceiving drawing as a discipline of self-creation and autonomic artistic expression.

form of classes

Students develop their drawing skills through completing thematic assignments with the use of chosen and developed means. The principal of treating each student as an individual is the basic strategy of working in our studio. Analyzing each student’s possibilities individually, discovering the scope of his/her sensitivity, searching for didactic methods to serve him/her with advice and help is the teacher’s task.

subject area coverage

Thematic exercises, issues interpretation, drawing based on human body - act observation, still life. Students develop their drawing skills basing on nature observation – human act/ still life, treating this as an indispensable stage within the process of their artistic development and as a base for their technical abilities. Simultaneously with the work at the studio there are thematic assignments given. These enable students to search for the language of their individual artistic expression.
