Program description

In-depth knowledge of painting, its language, and its place in the modern art world is gained in the painting course.

Consideration is given to painting as more than just a skill; rather, it is treated as a multifaceted process that has theoretical, practical, social, and metaphorical implications depending on the specifics of the given situation.

The course provides students with the theoretical and practical tools they need to produce, exhibit, write, and express themselves through the language of painting by providing them with the context and guidance they need to align their personal expressivity with forms of contemporary visual representation and its theoretical and critical premises.
