Drawing in the 21st Century

when 1 July 2013 - 5 July 2013
duration 1 week
credits 2 EC
fee EUR 350

This fine arts course explores drawing as a permanently developing form of contemporary art practice. The course will take as its starting point divergent approaches to drawing. In the form of workshops, led by internationally acclaimed artists, a variety of approaches to drawing will be explored, and assumptions about the uses and practice of drawing will be challenged. The course thus offers students the opportunity to explore drawings’ potential; not just as an aesthetically driven activity, but also as a tool for communicating theoretical concepts and personal ideas. The course will offer possibilities to work with a number of practitioners representing a range of artistic practices
