Learning Objectives The students develop an individual painting project. In the lesson time they receive input from the lecturers:
on the material of painting (paint production, binding agents, canvas)
on the image-finding process (figurative/abstract)
on the techniques and history of color (incl. digital area) The students thus develop a personal artistic language. They develop a critical attitude towards their own painting and its presentation to the outside world through exchange with the lecturers and the other module participants.
The students examine their individual impressions, as well as the positions of established painters. Through alternating periods of self-study and discussions in the group, the students reflect on both creating images and experimentation with materials.
A two-week introductory phase serves to identify the project: Through inputs and their own research the students build up a store of images and materials that they can use to experiment with and develop their own painting project.
Weeks 3-4 serve as a period of implementation: with the help of individual coaching the practical project becomes focused, using a logbook in which the entire process can be worked out. Inputs in the classroom, but also in the form of visits to exhibitions and studio discussions, provide external stimuli.
From week 5 onwards, additional questions of the final presentation will be important. In exchange with fellow students and lecturers, an appropriate exhibition situation will be developed for each work. This will then be refined in the last week during self-study (workload).
