Program Practical exercises aimed at reinventing the prescribed and normative relation between the eye that sees and the hand that draws, considering the tension abstract/concrete inherent to any model. Each exercise is proposed by the teachers, and eventually also by the students, under the form of explicit conditions that are expressed verbally. In the face of the results thus obtained, these verbal proposals will themselves become the object of analysis and discussion, bearing in mind their function in drawing practice.

Program Without the line, there is no drawing. Whether clear or fuzzy, subliminal or imagined, it’s the line that makes drawing possible. In his theoretical writings, Kandinsky explains how each curved line gives life to a portion of space and how horizontal and vertical lines give birth to the space where the drawing emerges. We will explore different aspects of the work based on the line with materials such as graphite, pen or coloured pencils.

Type semestrial

Program
The Evening Course in Drawing/Painting follows the general pedagogical orientations of the standard daytime course, providing a more diversified training and a quicker widening of the students’ cultural, aesthetic and technical horizons. Teachers will likewise attend to the students’ progress in a personalized and differentiated way. Within this context, practical and thematic exercises help promote the students’ capacities for observation and representation as well as the development of their expressive skills. Emphasis on experimentation in what regards both working modes and materials (oil paint, India ink, gouache, charcoal, oil pastel, graphite, etc.) ensure that students will gradually acquire an awareness of the more relevant questions regarding contemporary artistic production. Progress is closely followed by teachers and confirmed in formal evaluations with the presence of the head of department. For each level of the Course, the main objective is the constitution of a portfolio that is both abundant and as personal as possible.

- Live Model Drawing 1
Live Model Drawing is the situation of observation drawing par excellence, where the study of the human body (in motion, at rest, posing, etc.) and the experimentation with different techniques, scale and modes of composition promote an understanding of the mechanisms of attention and of the gaze that lie at the very core of the drawing gesture.

Notes The Evening Course promotes the development of technical and artistic skills in the areas of Painting/Drawing. Further development options: Level 3 of the Standard Course in Painting or Drawing, Advanced Course in the Visual Arts, Individual Project or other.

Program The Evening Course in Drawing and Painting 2 differs from the previous year in two fundamental aspects: a more specific orientation of the experimental dimension, promoting a growing individualization of the students’ work; a continuous studio practice, complementing the classroom sessions. In order to add consistency to the training, participants are encouraged to take one or several of the following workshops: Evening Drawing Workshop: The line; Evening Drawing Workshop: The stain; Evening Drawing Workshop: The image and its structure. As was the case in the previous year, evaluation of the student’s progress is at once continuous (the responsibility of teachers) and formally confirmed several times a year in the presence of the head of department. All throughout the year, participants are expected to build an individual, abundant and consistent portfolio.

Program What are “Modernity”, “Modernism”, “Post-Modernism”? Introduction to the History of Art organized by themes, centered on the concept of “Modern Art”, its “before” and its “after”; structured in two school semesters that can be attended separately. The art of the “Renaissance” will lead us to two pasts and two futures: one past, close by, with which there is a rupture (the “medieval”) and one past, remote, that legitimizes the changes (“Antiquity”). A future that builds a “classical” culture, as an extension of Renaissance utopias, and a future that inflects them and transforms them, until “classical” culture is destroyed. As we take questions of contemporary culture as a point of departure the path is not chronologically linear. The group of works under discussion is centered, exclusively, around painting, sculpture and architecture – and on a “European” - or, should we say, “Western” - cultural tradition, so as to more obviously include its “colonial” and “globalizing” extensions.

Program
Under the sign of Nietzsche, for whom the artistic path is opposed to that of knowledge, remaining on the surface of things, this course follows the question of resemblance/similitude and diversity/dissimilitude at the level of theory and at the level of art. Figuration and “disfiguration”, associated with different notions of Reason and Truth, where artistic manifestations either prefer the “goodwill of appearance” or strive to capture something that lies beyond it.

1- The Medieval moment and its Renaissance extensions. The image as indication of a presence. The corporeal dissimilarities related to the Sacred and their spreading on the margins of the main figure – the famous “fair deformities” of the unnatural bestiaries.
2- The Baroque in a conflicting moment between the ever more scientific Truth and the affirmation of the sacred through the image’s power. Romanticism, fraught with literary and artistic whims. Cadalso/Goya: illusion in dissimilitude. The insights that cannot be reached by the discursive intellect.
3- Modernity and the paradox of irony. From sophistry to the sophisticated dandy. The flâneur who privileges the transitory instead of the classical. From the mocking Light of pataphysics to Dada.
4- The recognition of the artifice. Confusion between original and copy – denial of the model and denial of the reproduction. The arbitrariness of signs and the undifferentiated mixture of real and false. The medium and the object, the space of the exhibition and that of publicity (Duchamp, Warhol, Broodthaers, Rodney Graham, Murakami…).

Program Alternative Processes in Photography I is an essential complement to the study of photography, introducing the students to less conventional modes of image production. In this first module, that precedes Alternative Processes in Photography II, we will approach the techniques of the pin-hole camera, instantaneous photography, cyanotype and gum bichromate printing. Participants will develop their experiments departing from digital negatives and will explore printing modes on different photosensitive materials.
