The Studio Expanded Pictorial Space offers participants the ideal environment for further developing their respective artistic position and intensifying their critical investigation of practical and theoretical aspects of Fine Arts. Students are moreover required to present and discuss their work within the class, which promotes critical reflection. As they acquire systematic working skills at their workplace in the Studio, students will also develop more confidence as artists. Comprehensive information of artistic developments in painting then and now is presented in lectures and in audiovisual events. The curriculum is complemented with visits to museums and galleries, and with excursions to international events such as Biennials and art fairs.
