Bachelor 1, 2 & 3
This painting course is considered as a laboratory for discovering and testing the practices and challenges of contemporary painting. It explores the many forms that painting can take today. The workshop enables students to explore the diversity of painting production means and to experiment current techniques and materials. Students acquire practical and conceptual tools that contribute to the development of a personal artistic approach. At the end of the year, the students’ development and work are analysed together with them in order to look at the possible improvement points of their practice.
The painting Master course offers a regular follow-up of the students’ practice. These individual or small-group interviews are completed by sessions focused on the analysis of contemporary and historical visual practices. In this course, students are invited to think about the place of painting in today’s world and about the challenges of painting in relation to its history and to other media (photography, sculpture, video, digital image, etc.). The course is focused on further developing the students’ approaches as well as on the mediation of their works. In this perspective, the course dwells on exhibition, layout and oral presentation issues, taking into account the specificity of each student’s practice.
