This course is a continuation of the Painting Studio I session for those students desiring more time to work and more advanced instruction in order to develop further their paintings and concepts. Studio courses tend to require more time than regular lecture courses in order to achieve the proper results, therefore this option of an extension or continuation is made available. In addition to the common core content and structure (listed below) there will be in this advanced second level more in-depth and theoretical seminars about painting and higher demands and expectations from the students.
This is a painting course to be held in the studios of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Students will paint from the model, still life, landscape and their own imagination, but inspired by the specific Expressionist and Surrealist characteristics of Central European art. The premise is that Central Europe of Prague and Vienna developed according to its unique history and artistic heritage, which differed from the cultures of other European capitals and regions and that this can be a valuable source of inspiration for the contemporary artist.
Students will be painting in some of the finest studios in Europe and work in one of the most visually inspirational cities in the world.
