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 regarding 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 the head 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: Individual Project, Advanced Course in the Visual Arts or other.


Teachers: Alexandre Camarão, António Marques, Berta Ehrlich, Francisca Carvalho, Gonçalo Pena, João Catarino, João Miguéis, Madalena Parreira, Marcelo Costa, Nuno Martinho, Pedro Calhau, Pedro Tropa, Vasco Futscher e & invited guests.

Program The Evening Course in Drawing and Painting 2 differs from the previous year in two fundamental aspects: a more specific orientation of the experimental dimension, promoting a growing individualization of the students’ work; a continuous studio practice, complementing the classroom sessions. In order to add consistency to the training, participants are encouraged to take one or several of the following workshops: 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 the head of department. All throughout the year, participants are expected to build an individual, abundant and consistent portfolio.

Program
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.

- Live Model Drawing 1
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.

Notes 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.
