Programmes

Heads of Department: Marcelo Costa

Standard three-year course aiming at the development of the technical and conceptual/authorial dimensions in drawing. A diversified learning process leads to the widening of the participants’ cultural, technical and artistic horizons. Practical and thematic exercises promote the development of the students’ observation and representation skills, while simultaneously encouraging an experimental attitude in regard to ways of making and the use of materials (oil paint, India ink, gouache, charcoal, pastel, graphite, etc.). Individualized modes of expression should translate the participants’ gradual familiarity with the main questions concerning contemporary artistic creation. Personalized attention is paid to each student’s progress, which is followed in a continuous manner by teachers and confirmed in formal evaluations with one of the heads of department. In each of the three levels of the course, the main objective is to produce an abundant personal portfolio.
Options for further development consist in applying to Individual Project, Advanced Course in the Visual Arts or other.

Teachers: André Constantino, António Marques, Berta Ehrlich, Francisca Carvalho, João Catarino, João Miguéis, Madalena Parreira, Marcelo Costa, Miguel Branco, Nuno Martinho, Pedro Calhau, Pedro Tropa, Rita Thomaz, Vasco Futscher & invited guests.

Program Departing from the logic of the sketchbook – whose aim is above all that of quickly registering, in graphic form, situations where we are involved - the workshop will explore the confrontations between model and draughtsman, static and dynamic, object and subject. Classes will take place indoors or outdoors, wherever events related to daily life may occur, with privileged access to actors, performers, dancers or musicians. Some of the essential aspects of live model drawing will also be explored, resorting to techniques such as charcoal, graphite and India ink.

Program
Sayat Nova, the colour of pomegranate, the movie by Paradjanov on the medieval Armenian poet Sayat Nova, opens new artistic perspectives: time is expressed by space, its continuity by the juxtaposition of images, a pictorial thought composed by miniatures and frescoes is revealed, an impossible and yet alive synthesis of the symmetries of Persian art, of orthodox iconography devoid of perspective and of Paradjanov’s surrealistic collages.
Exploring the singular resources of this movie, we will try to extract from it drawings, to create an imaginary material that corresponds, according to Daney, to "the art of staying close to elements, materials, colours and textures.”

Program Practical exercises aimed at reinventing the prescribed and normative relation between the eye that sees and the hand that draws departing from the abstract/concrete tension inherent to any model. Each exercise is proposed by the teachers, and eventually also by the participants, under the form of conditions which 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 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.

Program
The Evening Course in Drawing and Painting 3 differs from previous levels in that the work’s progress is followed by teachers in a more individualized basis, taking the form of a near-tutorship (the tutorship format is fully developed subsequently, for those enrolling in the Advanced Course in Visual Arts). The course aims at promoting a more informed attitude on the part of students in what concerns the main questions posed by contemporary artistic production. The personal nature of the work is also further encouraged.
Several evaluation sessions will be held throughout the school year with the presence of one of the heads of department.
By the end of the school year each participant’s portfolio should reflect an abundant production and demonstrate an authorial consistency.

Program
The Night Course in Drawing/Painting follows the general pedagogical orientations of the standard daytime course. In the Night Course the 3 Levels function together, in order to provide a more diversified training and a quicker widening of the participants’ cultural, aesthetic and technical horizon. Teachers will attend to the students’ progress in a differentiated way. In this context, practical and thematic exercises aim at developing the participants’ capacity for observation and representation, as well as their individualized 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 one of the heads 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.
Notes: Further development options: application to Level 3 of the Standard Course in Painting or Drawing, Advanced Course in the Visual Arts, Individual Project or other.

Program There is no drawing without the line, whether it is 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 line with materials such as graphite, pen or coloured pencils.

Program The Night Course in Drawing and Painting 2 differs from the previous year in two fundamental aspects: a more specific orientation of the experimental dimension, bearing in mind that a growing individualization of the work is expected; a continuous studio practice, complementing the classroom sessions. In order to add consistency to the training, participants are advised to take one or several of the following workshops: Drawing Workshop: Live Model 1; Drawing Workshop: Live Model 2; 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 one of the heads of department. All throughout the year, participants are expected to build an individual, abundant and consistent portfolio.

Program In each drawing the stain emerges as a prelude and makes composition possible. Beyond the line and its structures, the stain opens up a space for representation. The workshop will deal with this potential: the creation of surfaces through the use of techniques and materials such as India ink or charcoal.

Program Drawing is also the creation of meaning and meaning emanates from the structure. This workshop will be dedicated to the study and exploration of the modes of structuring an image, including in what concerns the use of color. We will lean on the observation of various graphic materials and introduce techniques such as collage and oil pastel.
