Drawing and Painting
The intensive Drawing | Painting programme includes an extensive study plan that incorporates all the mechanisms of traditional academics related to drawing and painting in order to provide the student with all the aesthetic and expressive resources of a professional artist. Students have 6 to 8 hours of supervised study from Monday to Friday. The students of this course work with all the subjects of the programme, which consists of the subjects of the 19th century Traditional Programme as well as the Seminars of the Drawing | Painting curriculum.
- To train the eye to be thorough.
- To acquire the necessary skills to carry out an analytical study drawing.
- To work on the concepts of chiaroscuro and tonal values.
- To learn the basic concepts of anatomy, gesture and proportion.
- To acquire knowledge of the process of making an analytical study painting.
- To practice the concepts of hue and saturation based on colour theory and tonal assessment.
- To recognise pigment colours and how they mix together.
- To be familiar with the tools of graphic expression for the representation of what we want.
On the intensive Drawing | Painting programme, each student carries out the assignments at their own pace and advances through the course programme in a progressive way, the difficulty gradually increasing.
Each day students have a different teacher who comes to each workspace and offers individual feedback. This is what we call a critique, which is always focused on ensuring that the student is taking on the concepts taught at each stage of their learning to correct, modify or improve all aspects that the tutor has suggested in the best way.
At the end of each term, the students receive an individual, personalised final critique attended by all their teachers. Five general areas are evaluated: attendance, performance, effort, attitude and progress. A final average grade is given based on this.
The time that each student spends on each assignment, and consequently on finishing a course, is totally individual, and may be different from other students. The standard amount of time a full-time student spends completing the Drawing | Painting course is three academic years.
In order to complete a course, the student must pass all the subjects that make it up, both the Traditional Programme and the Seminars of the chosen curriculum.
The minimum enrolment time for standard courses is always one term or semester [3 months]. At the Barcelona Academy of Art, each academic year is divided into three periods of eleven weeks each. [See Calendar]
Students can join the chosen programme at the beginning of each term and progress on a continuous basis, or they can choose to let some time pass between each enrolment. Depending on the period in which students want to join, there are maximum deadlines for receiving applications. [See application deadlines]

Once the online form has been submitted and the student has been accepted, they will be asked to confirm their place by paying the non-refundable deposit. The non-refundable deposit corresponds to 10% of the total amount of the course enrolled by the student. The rest of the registration fee must be paid by the dates specified via email when confirming the place at the rate of one payment per registered term, and always in advance. If the non-refundable deposit is not paid, the place will remain automatically available for another student.
Students may request refunds (except the non-refundable deposit amount) which will be determined in accordance with the school's internal policy. Any change to be applied after the student's place has been confirmed will require the payment of an administrative fee.
As a general rule, refunds are not permitted other than in cases of extreme seriousness or emergency. In such cases, the student may be required to present the necessary documentation to prove that the circumstances are true. The Management Committee will evaluate each situation and the Administration Department will communicate the final decision to the student. This decision shall be final and not appealable.
