Course content
The graphic studio is a place for individuals, who find the desire within themselves to express themselves freely. An infinite space with all spiritual meanings, which are within us and which become capturable by word, a line, a ray of light, an inner glimpse of ideas and events or energies. The expression of visual art is unlimited, with respect to both topics and forms. The studio work is delimited by what is referred to as a framework assignment, within which the student can work freely. A composition on a plane (limited to a planar surface). The students can work with any kind of material, in any form, however, traditional materials and traditional forms are preferred. Emphasis is put on development of individual creativity and sensitivity. The students analyse the assigned topic. Based on the analysis, they create their own concept and they determine the form and materials to be used in the work. In the introduction, students are acquainted with the topic in a lecture, by references to professional literature and by documents on works of art.
