VISUAL ARTS AND EDUCATION
Modes of study:
full-time first-cycle studies (BA 3 years)
full-time second-cycle studies (MA 2 years)
Description of the field of study:
Existing since 1985, the Faculty of Art Education and Curatorial Studies has undergone several modifications in order to emphasize and enhance the uniqueness of its field of study, the combination of theory and practice in arts. In addition to three painting and two drawing studios run by internationally established artists, the Faculty of Art Education and Curatorial Studies offers six art studios which are matchless in Poland: the Studio of Transdisciplinary Projects and Researches, the Studio of Open Interpretations of Art, the Studio of Art in Social Space, the Studio of Creative Projects and Activities, the Artistic Book Studio and the Studio of Art from an InterculturalPerspective. Besides the studios’ transdisciplinarity between the arts and other fields of studies such as sociology or biology, the Faculty of Art Education and Curatorial Studies puts an emphasis on interdisciplinarity, the liaison between traditional media, such as drawing and painting and their contemporary interpretations, and modern media like photography and videos. Accompanied are these practical studios by numerous theory subjects concentrating on art theory, art marketing, psychology, curatorial studies and the animation and promotion of art, which reflects the second
focus of our faculty: the connection of theory and practice.
Types of courses:
A unique feature of our faculty is the fact, that students of Visual Arts and Education are free to choose studios and classes from all faculties of UAP. To ensure that students get a wide knowledge and learn as many techniques as possible, they’re encouraged to get to know all offered studios at the Faculty of Art Education and Curatorial Studies. In addition to the obligatory theoretical subjects such as Polish language and art history, students of Visual Arts and Education, are taught in pedagogics, curatorial studies, art marketing, methodology and more to guarantee an extensive know-how of the promotion of art besides the individual artistic techniques. Furthermore, students participate in an art workshop where they can develop their skills while working intensely on one project.
