Programmes

Note: In light of the covid pandemic and the unpredictability of its evolution, the programs for 2021/22 may undergo format adaptations (to on-line or on-premise learning, or a mixture of both), Ar.Co’s priority being the on-premise format whenever possible and adequate. The schedules here announced therefore mention the format in which, except when impossible, 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 2021/22

Head of Department: Catarina Silva
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 whenever 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.
