The Visual Arts Certificate course offers a one year program, rich with information and practice, spread over 4 semesters of 3 months each, that develops both beginners and advanced students into practicing artists, focusing on techniques like oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolor, as well as sketching techniques using charcoal, graphite, sanguine and pastels, offering an array of methods and mediums and a good exposure to various art techniques, along with an exhibition and a one month internship in an arts organization. Students can select 3 mediums to work throughout the year
The first few months the main focus is how to be more familiar with the techniques taught, emphasizing more on the classical and some experimental technique. The students can decide to go completely towards realism or totally experimental or a mix of both. The students are expected to have gained good technical learning in this program.
The program will include study of famous artists works and their methods including some observational work of the artist, a learning process based on frequent practice in order to be familiar with the a wide range of media. This would give the student the ability to combine different materials together based on research and application, leading sometimes to develop personal art styles and original outcomes.
This discipline will be also a good exposure to different art styles like classicism, impressionism, modern art, contemporary art. The study could include portrait study, still life, landscape or a combination of subjects together.
By the end of the program the student should be able to present a variety of artworks showing awareness and experience of the techniques taught, this will open an opportunity to exhibit and be a good candidate for internship in an arts organization.
The basic art supplies will be provided by the studio but the certificate program highly encourages new ideas and self-engagement from the student, welcoming new and innovative experiences, using different and unusual media.
