Outline of lecture

What is Nature? What kind of expression does Nature find in the arts? In the Advanced Art Workshop B I will introduce important European artists with different approaches towards this fundamental topic. In the workshop we will experiment with diverse materials and techniques, producing two-dimensional and three-dimensional artworks. With the focus on nature the students will learn how to find their individual way of expression.

At the end of the course the students will have the chance to participate in a group exhibition.

Purpose of lecture

The students will achieve rich practice and experiences in expressing themselves in diverse media and techniques.

They have the chance to gain a deeper consciousness and knowledge about Nature and its reflections in the arts.
