Drawing and Painting Full-Time Program

 

 

 

The Full-Time Drawing | Painting program includes an extensive study plan covering all aspects of traditional drawing and painting techniques in order to provide the student with all the aesthetic and expressive resources to become a professional artist. Students have 6 to 8 hours of guided study from Monday to Thursday (from 10 am to 1pm AND from 2 to 5 pm + evening sessions from 5:30/6 to 7:30/8 pm) and seminars on Friday (from 10 am to 1pm AND from 2 to 5 pm).

Aims
  • 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.
Methodology

The Full-time Drawing | Painting Program consists of a series of exercises that the student must complete at their own pace.


Every day, students receive individual feedback from a different teacher who visits their workspace. This personalized feedback session, known as a critique, is tailored to ensure that students understands the concepts taught at each stage of their learning. The focus is on correcting, modifying, or enhancing all aspects suggested by the tutor in the most effective manner possible.


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 then determined based on these criteria.

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. However, as a standard guideline, a full-time student typically completes the Drawing | Painting Program within a timeframe of three academic years (one academic year is equivalent to 9 months/3 terms).


The minimum enrolment time for standard courses is always one term [3 months].


Schedule: Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm AND from 2pm to 5pm + Evening Human Figure Pencil Drawing sessions: Monday to Thursday from 5:30/6pm to 7:30/8pm (1 obligatory session per week).

Drawing forms the backbone of the academic process at the Barcelona Academy of Art. Without a solid foundation in drawing, most of the challenges encountered throughout an artistic career become significantly harder to overcome. Only when the student demonstrates mastery of drawing techniques according to the academic methodologies we employ at our school will they be ready to progress to the Painting program. As students move towards more complex projects, instructors will encourage them to experiment with techniques and colors, allowing them to find their own artistic voice. The standard timeframe for a full-time student to complete the Drawing | Painting course is three academic years.


The Drawing | Painting course comprises subjects from the 19th-century Traditional Program along with Friday Seminars that vary each trimester. Below is an example of the study schedule for a trimester:
