 SPECIAL ABSTRACT PAINTING PROGRAM

The program includes a wide and diverse offer of art exercises for the development of creative art thinking: abstract painting in different techniques (acrylic, brush, roller, spatula, printing, etc.), painting according to a given template and painting according to observation. The approach includes different methods of artistic interpretation (getting to know different design systems, translation from one art system to another, personal interpretation, etc.). All participants of this program have the opportunity to get acquainted with FRACTAL DRAWING, a special art technique designed to develop the full potential of human creativity, as well as the development of psychophysical abilities (motor skills, psychological balance, spiritual growth). It is a very interesting method by which we can clearly read our inner state, and with the help of colour and design correct any irregularities and return our own psychophysical system to balance and harmony.

ABSTRACT PAINTING WORKSHOP 2

The workshop is intended exclusively for participants who have completed the Abstract 1 workshop with Studio Tanay. The workshop lasts 45 hours – with a three-hour class every other week (15 x 3). The basic principles of abstract painting expression will be elaborated upon in more detail through the workshops. Attention will be paid to more complex compositions, more diverse textures and different technical or technological procedures in painting. While the first workshop was based on an experimental approach, this workshop will be more dedicated to study. This means that each participant will be given the opportunity to – according to their personal preferences – deepen their selected motifs, both in terms of performance and content. In other words, the basic principles of the abstract approach will be enriched with new material, new knowledge, but at the same time each student will keep an individual approach.

The price of the abstract painting program for 45 hours is 2,650.00 HRK (2,400.00 HRK + 250.00 HRK registration fee for 2021/2022), which includes 15 art workshops lasting 3 hours each, held twice a month. The program begins in October 2021 and ends in March 2021. An additional fractal-drawing program is free.

You can find out more information about the program at the open days of the school in September 2020 and meet the course instructor, academic painter Daniela Pal Bučan.

WATERCOLOUR

The program consists of simple and complex art tasks with surfaces of pure colours in different visual textures. The goal of these tasks is to directly observe and experience nature through interior and exterior landscapes. The approach to the participants of the program is individualised, and it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge or developed drawing skills to attend.

The program starts in October 2021. The price of this program for 45 hours is 2,650.00 HRK (2,400.00 HRK + 250.00 HRK registration fee). This program includes 15 art workshops lasting 3 hours each, and is held twice a month. The program begins in October 2021 and ends in March 2022.

GRAPHIC ART WORKSHOPS

The program consists of simple and varied art tasks and is aimed at learning about drawing techniques and methods. Tasks consist of concrete drawing exercises according to direct observation with variations of motifs and artistic approaches. The aim of these exercises is to develop drawing skills, perception of space, sense of tones and, by synthesizing these experiences, to train and encourage students to create independently. The approach to the participants of the program is individualized, and it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge or developed drawing skills to attend. The tasks of the program are constructed in such a way that the difficulty is adapted to both students with prior knowledge and beginners. Therefore, if the student already possesses a certain level of skill, the challenge of the art task is intensified accordingly. After completing the exercises that develop drawing skills, work in letterpress and flat printing is planned. This program includes linocut techniques, cardboard printing, monotypes and drypoint.

The medium of graphic art is the print. We get the print by painting the stencil and pressing it against paper, passing it through a press or by hand. Accordingly, where printing ink retains on the matrix, graphic techniques are divided into letterpress techniques, flatbed techniques, and intaglio printing techniques. Wood printing, linocut and cardboard printing are included in letterpress. Flatbed printing techniques are lithography, screen-printing and monotype. Gravure printing includes etching, aquatint and drypoint.

The program starts in October 2020. The price of this program for 45 hours is 2650.00 HRK (2400.00 HRK + 250.00 HRK registration fee). This program includes 15 art workshops lasting 3 hours each, and is held twice a month.

You can find out more information about the program at the open days of the school on the 9th and 16th of September 2021, and meet the course instructor, academic painter Marko Zeman.

 

SPECIAL PROCESS AND ILLUSTRATION PROGRAM

The program is focused on comic illustration / animation, stylised drawing style (cartoon style) and contains tasks such as making short comics, the basics of framing, quick sketching, thematic drawing (concept art), creating cover pages for a comic book or book and designing the main actors (character design). In addition to technical instructions, participants will be encouraged to explore a particular topic, so in addition to the art world, we will explore distant lands, unusual animals or historical figures, events and cultures of the world. In this way, we encourage the richness and diversity of creation to expand our knowledge and build our own art vocabulary. To create their artwork, participants will learn, use and master the drawing techniques of pencil and ink, and at a later stage of the program when colour becomes our main means of expression, we will use tempera and watercolour. The approach to the participants of the program is individualised, and it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge or developed drawing skills to attend.

The author and host of this program is the academic painter Ružica Dobronić. You can find out more information about the program at the open days of the school on the 9th and 16th of September, 2021.

This program will also be available (online on the ‘Go to meeting’ platform) on Friday evenings
