From Nature the ground, the water and the heat were harnessed to build shelters and defence works. With terra sigilata and pigments small mugs and casseroles and tiles for the walls and for roof and eave were made. Burned ground was used for clay jug, olive oil jar or water drinking in a scented Estremoz container. And small beautiful fine porcelain figures – or ugly as the devil in popular handicraft – have been produced.
Between sacred and profane – prehistoric flutes, ornaments for godesses and warriors, lamentations in churches, oratories in crossroads and paths, micro-conducters in technology - it takes all sorts of things to make a world and an entire world to know its history and art.

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.
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.

The landscape and territory surrounding the school will become the center of two types of exercises or exploratory journeys. One will take place in class sessions: we will see and discuss a series of films which allow us to explore, not only some images and questions regarding the landscape of Beato and Marvila, but also the ways in which cinema relates to an existing space. The other will be developed outside of class: a series of exercises will promote the exploration and mapping of a territory – physical, emotional or other - in the school surroundings.

Group of classes that will make a journey through the history of jewellery using as a motto for each class a jewel that marked its time. The criteria for choosing each of these jewels will vary, ranging from jewels that are unique (such as a royal crown or a contemporary piece) to others that are relevant for exactly the opposite reason, that of being one among many equal or similar pieces (such as mass-produced jewelery in the early 20th century). In each session we will try to situate jewelery in its time and analyze its impact on everyday life, politics and history.

Rumours fly and reproduce in legends. They are associated to the goddess Fame and can cover truth with darkness just as they can make it drift towards the most wonderful fantasies. The course approaches the fanciful incursions in the field of science that originated legends and fabulous figurations, treated as prodigious discoveries that found an echo in illustrations. Considering the historical period that goes from Antiquity to the 21st Century we will account for various projects of virtuous devices in drawings and in prints that, like a virtual hypertext, made Art profit from the scientific falsities where curiosity won the battle over truth.

Rumours fly and reproduce in legends. They are associated to the goddess Fame and can cover truth with darkness just as they can make it drift towards the most wonderful fantasies. The course approaches the fanciful incursions in the field of science that originated legends and fabulous figurations, treated as prodigious discoveries that found an echo in illustrations. Considering the historical period that goes from Antiquity to the 21st Century we will account for various projects of virtuous devices in drawings and in prints that, like a virtual hypertext, made Art profit from the scientific falsities where curiosity won the battle over truth.

Mobile is a type of sculpture composed of elements that move as a result of mechanical devices or natural forces, thus altering composition.
In this workshop students are encouraged to think, draw and build small mobile objects in wire.
In a first moment, participants will draw and make collages that will be used as a basis to create their own mobiles at a later moment. Some construction techniques in wire will be used, such as welding and modeling with pliers.

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 empiricism, 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. This course focuses on the study of three main axes – creation, duration, and difference, establishing connections with different artistic processes and philosophical thoughts of other authors that support the meaning that crosses them. By following the future orientation that seems to define modern and contemporary art, the course also seeks to think about the potency of art in transforming the world.
