Anatomy and Anatomical Drawing deals with the functional connections within the human body. The focus lies on the musculoskeletal system (skeleton, muscles …). Students learn about the theory in lectures and personal conversations, and are taught how to draw parts of the human anatomy.
Students familiarize themselves with programs for designing, processing photos, videos, sound and text as well as programming, 3D animation and postproduction in the course of lectures and seminars and then implement these processes in actual artistic projects.
The work done in this workshop focuses on textile solutions for temporary room installations, projections, equipment and costumes, as well as technical effects.
The Nude Drawing Evening Class offers all students the opportunity to train their drawing skills on the object, and thus further to develop them. The working focus here lies on the human body in its complexity, which in a way serves to gauge students' spatial awareness, precise perception, and ...

The Media Laboratory, closely linked to teaching, focuses on the artistic research of moving images media. On the basis of the analogous conception of the film in its relationship to the traditional electronic medium of television, new technologies have brought these two forms of media closer to each other.
The spectrum of metalworking skills imparted ranges from operating simple hand tools such as drills, disc grinders and stroke saws to welding, soldering, lathing, milling and edging of metals. Metal founding techniques are discussed and students produce a variety of contemporary artistic works using metal.
The Workshop for Molding and Casting Techniques uses a wide range of different procedures. One end of the spectrum covers the classical techniques which have been playing a central role for centuries in their original form, on the other end, we have more recent technologies.
The courses offered by the Painting Workshop range from the basics and techniques of painting to a laboratory-like analysis of materials and techniques. On the one hand, we teach students to use traditional painting techniques on the other hand we also encourage them to research modern materials and to experiment ...

Structurally assigned to the Studio Graphic Arts and Printmaking Techniques, the workshop for Silk Screen Printing has been conceived and equipped for the realization of artistic printing projects with hand silk-screen printing techniques using paper or similar plane printing materials.
Working with Sound is gaining importance in the context of contemporary fine art. The implementation of the Sound Laboratory served to create a central local identity for this highly specialized field, which was subsequently extended to form a modern open platform.
In this course, students acquire a basic knowledge of stone cutting and carving techniques, some of which go back over a thousand years. The rough splitting of stone boulders using drills, saws and wedges is taught, as well as the formative methods and the fine engraving of writing. Students work with hand tools mainly on materials ...
The focus lies on teaching students how to work with their hands and to handle (mobile) tools and stationary machines safely. Together, students plan and discuss projects, select materials and complete the respective project.
