Programmes

Heads of Department: Marcelo Costa

Standard three-year course aiming at the development of the technical and conceptual/authorial dimensions in the area of Painting. 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 and acrylic paints, gouache and watercolor, chalk and pastel, India ink, 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: Professores: 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 extensive collection of the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, each participant will produce a series of studies and sketches based on some selected paintings, focusing the attention on the scenery, the figures with their specific characterizations and the gazes that cross the composition. The workshop will also deal in a progressive and intensive way with the multiple possibilities of oil painting, such as the duration of the act of painting, the overlapping with or without transparency of the several paint layers, etc. Exercises aim at promoting the experience of the participants’ integration in the most classical of pictorial traditions.

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 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
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.
