STUDY PROGRAM: PAINTING
The Study Program of Painting is organized in accordance with the reform of higher education, and implementation of the Bologna Process reforms. The content of the study program consists of individual and interactive teaching, so that there are many hours of practical work (exercises, individual work and consultations), theoretical courses and elective courses. Fine arts study program is organized through single semesters, which allows active monitoring and assessment of students’ activities, and therefore students have an easier time to finish the program.
At the study program Painting, student activity monitoring and grading is expressed by points. Within each course, pre-requisites have been defined with the number of points they carry and the final exam, which is mandatory.
First steps at the undergraduate studies of painting are based on studies of still life, live models, understanding human anatomy, landscapes, graphic organization of space, technology of drawing and painting materials and techniques, familiarization with the development of art and understanding of the basic assumptions for arts in general. In the further course of study program, students are suggested to experiment with line, form, space and color in order to discover new possibilities of art and authenticity of expression. Students form a critical, i.e. aesthetic judgment through the application of acquired knowledge and skills related to the field of fine art. Students can acquire necessary skills that will provide them with a quality understanding of the social context of fine arts, working in cultural institutions, performing pedagogical work in the field of arts in elementary schools. Teaching art courses is done as group work with an individual approach to each student according to his individuality, temperament, working ability and openness to learning, methods of presentation, discussion, consultation, visits to exhibitions, museums, and professional practice. Theoretical courses are conducted with methods of video presentations, discussions, consultations.
Beside professional courses, at this study level, following courses are also taught: Psychology, Pedagogy, Fine arts teaching methods 1, 2, 3 and 4, Methodological practice and a foreign language. Students can acquire the necessary qualifications that will provide them with a good understanding of the social context of fine arts, work in cultural institutions, as well as performing pedagogical work in the field of fine arts in schools after taking exams in a pedagogical, psychological, methodical group of courses on lifelong learning programs.
The objectives of the Painting study program are the development of creative skills and mastering the students’ academic and practical skills and methods for achieving professional competence in the field of fine arts, and to educate individual artists and art educators as complex and free artistic personality, socially responsible, capable to independently deal with artistic creativity and pedagogical work in primary schools.
