Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • Approximately 80 contact hours. The course combines many elements, from lectures to excursions: no day is the same. Typically, the morning part of the program takes place in a classroom, which could be a lecture or a seminar.
  •  You may also find yourself in a panel discussion, defending a particular approach to art. The afternoons (sometimes the entire day) are devoted to museum visits. Variation is ensured by going into the museum with a tour, in small groups or on your own with an assignment. 
  • During these excursions, we devote time to both the factual and technical aspects of the painting, as well as the more personal and subjective ones, so that by the end, you will have explored the paintings in many dynamic ways. 
  • Hidden meanings, unexpected techniques, your peers’ opinions or your own may surprise you and change and broaden your perception of the artworks again and again.
