By embracing their interdependence and possibilities in overlap this provides opportunities for the development of versatile transdisciplinary practices.

The curriculum builds around annual focal points: year 1 Play, year 2 Ground, year 3 Connect, year 4 Transform.

Design is at the core of the program, supported by extensive courses in knowledge, skills and communication.

One of the core talents to be developed during our 4-year bachelor program is the personal artistic handwriting of each student. Model Drawing continuously trains the eye-hand coordination, using still life and live models to observe, discover and capture shape, proportions and expressions. Combined with different drawing techniques and use of materials, the student acquires a wide range of technical skills and an understanding of how to translate three-dimensional observation into a unique two-dimensional expression.

Spread over four years various subjects continuously develop: shape, perspective, portrait, anatomy of the human body, physical expression, materials, colours, composition, drawing style etc.

Through experimentation and reflection, goal is to develop a unique style and method of working in close connection to the design assignments that inspires, supports and communicates the student’s personal fascination and vision.
