Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in the field, mastering the fundamental principles of creative work and applying them in a creative personal approach.

Studio training

  • semestral: lasting 12 weeks, in which students from all years and both degree levels meet in the course of solving semestral assignments of various durations and levels of difficulty;
  • final project: a three-week project that each student solves and defends entirely independently.

The principle of learning is to master not only the knowledge and skill base of the given field, but also conceptual thinking, working by means of experimentation and developing the ability to analyze an assignment and working it up into a free or prescribed form.
