Programmes

Note: In light of the covid pandemic and the unpredictability of its evolution, the programmes for the 2020/21 academic year have undergone format adaptations to on-line or on-premise learning (or a mixture of both in exceptional cases), Ar.Co’s priority being whenever possible on-premise. The schedules here announced therefore mention the format in which, except in case of absolute impossibility, the subject in question will be taught. Ar.Co will rigorously follow and implement all DGS guidelines, including the use of masks, distancing and hygiene.

FULL PROGRAM JEWELERY 2020/21

Head of Department: Catarina Silva
Standard three-year program. Option of further development: Individual Project, Advanced Course in Visual Arts, or other.
Through practice, students will gain a technical knowledge of Jewellery-making in its various expressions, both traditional and contemporary. This experience is accompanied by an indispensable reflection on the history and evolution of this ancestral form of expression. The program is multi-disciplinary in nature and wherever possible favors on-premise learning, as opposed to on-line. Students are encouraged to develop a personal artistic language, as a result of the group’s and their own individual questioning of the symbolic dimensions of Jewellery and the value attributed to the jewel in the contemporary art panorama.

Power objects are part of human history since time immemorial. From the oldest archaelogical finds to mobile phones, we always surrounded ourselves with objects that provide us with security and protection, that allow us to communicate at a distance (be it a physical distance or that which separates us from another, spiritual world) and that propitiate favourable events (at least in intention). A lot of those objects took the form of jewels, but not only.
We will travel to find protection objects and jewels in history and in various geographies, seeking to establish bridges with what happens in the 21st Century and in contemporary jewellery.

Through an intentionally slow and thorough process students will create a jewel – a necklace made out of paper, using cuts, fittings, folds or seems and without resorting to glue or scotch tape. The aim is to take this common and apparently fragile material and, as in a puzzle, build new tri-dimensional forms with it.
