Myths, legends and traditional stories are forms of things “seen”, even when never actually witnessed. They are rooted in the depths of the unconscious and of the tímeless memory kept in dreams. To illustrate means to bring something to light and is also a means to render visible what the letter kills.
A thread connects the most ancient initiatory evocations of entering adult life: the meaning of the nymphs and the wrath they provoque (as Roberto Calasso so aptly described), the enchantment and whirlwind that from Greco-Latin Antiquity nymphs moves on to the inspiring muses of artists, the sleep/dream of sleeping beauties, the meeting between boys, girls and animals, the metamorphosis that surface in young girls who are also animal.

Teachers: João Miguéis, Hugo Bernardo, João Catarino e Marcelo Costa
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.

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.

Priority will be given to the exploration of the documentary as a specific but integrating strategy in a wider cinematographic practice. Resorting to a series of films, texts and practical exercises, suggested and discussed in class, we will map some of the fundamental problems raised by the relation between cinema and reality, the key point of documentary practice. This map will be partly oriented by the problems that participants encounter while building their final work: a small film, with a free theme and developed individually.

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 colored pencils.

Going back to the thread of myths and to the dream that unleashes fantasy events, whether in legends or in the narratives of the oldest children’s stories, we will now follow the theoretical and artistic clues that sustain them. In accordance with platonic theory, imagination is similar to fantasy, like a ghost, a simulacrum or a premonition that emerges in vision. Following legends, between Eros and Thanatos, the dream allows the spirit to wander through “blind visions”, or nightmares, accompanying corporeal metamorphosis, when waking life and reason cease to pay attention.
We will follow these mutations thoughout age old stories and images, from the dormants in mountains and caves, or sleeping beauties, to the nocturnal digressions of Little Nemo, until they start to move in Comic strips or in cinema.

On the fringe: the Bestiary, the bizarre and illustrations' intersections with texts and other ‘front page’ arts.

On-line classes.
To illustrate means bringing to light and, in history, artistic ingenuity has given free rein to fantasy, often to end up in worlds that proved inaccessible to Reason.
The bestiary has also served the purpose of speaking about the human in oblique ways, through various asides in texts or narratives and every sort of distortion, when the wonders of the world were yet to be known and reached.
The modern world, confident in the sympathies between all species in Creation, will scrutinize the physiognomy of beasts looking for human psychology, blurring the limits of both categories.
Artistic hierarquies are also dissolved as the minor bestiary in sketchbooks moves on to the big canvas, while the Human is enunciated in more monstruous becomings.

A theoretical and dynamic reflection on the “death” of photography at the end of the 19th century and on the birth of modern 20th century photography. Departing from the photographic and patrimonial legacy of 19th century Portuguese photographer Carlos Relvas, we will contextualize the many instances of photography’s advent at the beginning of the 19th century until its symbolic “death” at the end of the same century. The birth of modern photography and the study of its most significant 20th century aesthetic currents will help us to draw and understand the contours of photography at the beginning of the 21st century.

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.

In the creative act, as in its reception, aesthetic experience tends to exceed the limits of perceptibility. Following in the path of the philosopher Gilles Deleuze’s transcendental em
piricism, the course will approach this fact from the point of view of an aesthetics of the virtual, where the perception of forms can be amplified through the forces that trigger, populate and express them. From the work that Deleuze dedicated to Bergson (Le Bergsonisme, 1966), we intend to study the theme of duration, establishing connections with the philosophical thought of Bergson and other authors and with different artistic processes, which sustain the meaning that passes through it.
