Training Program in Studio Arts

Metàfora Art School
Campus Full time 1 - 3 years January 2017 Spain Barcelona

Metàfora offers a complete Training program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). [+]

“I think art, if it’s meaningful at all, is a conversation with other artists. You say something, they say something, you move back and forth.” John Baldessari Metàfora’s Training Program in Studio Arts Metàfora offers a complete Training program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). Art is about understanding the way an idea is communicated to you. Art is about discovering the potential of a material or a form, but also about challenging beliefs before they become too rooted. Metàfora’s Training Program encourages students to investigate intuitively through techniques and materials, but we also support artists who engage in conceptual analysis, breaking conventional frames and narratives. What is important is the wish for thinking and growing, a need for understanding the now. What is the Training Program: aims and objectives The Training Program in Fine Arts is divided into two sections: Year 1 (Certificate in Studio Arts ) and Year 2-3 (Diploma in Studio Arts / Advanced Diploma in Studio Arts). Any of the 3 years of the training program can be undertaken independently (admission according to general admission requirements). Metàfora’s Training Program is small and intimate in comparison with the big universities worldwide, and this carries with it a series of advantages: the International Workshop offers a homely studio atmosphere where all students are attended individually. The scheduled activities are designed as a flexible support around the creative practice of each student rather than vice-versa. While encouraging both aesthetic concerns and conceptual investigation, the aim of the program is to help students acquire the necessary tools for independent artistic investigation. Metàfora’s training program provides a rich environment for growth and opportunity in the current, vibrant art scene. Among the activities specifically designed for these students are several exhibitions, both on-campus projects, as well as events and projects in different commercial galleries and institutions around Barcelona.

Bachelor in Photography

Willem de Kooning Academy
Campus Full time September 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

You will develop into an image specialist who – in your individual and questioning way – uses photography as a tool to portray a world in ways that are thought provoking and visually challenging. [+]

Bachelors in Fine Arts Studies in Europe 2017. You will develop into an image specialist who – in your individual and questioning way – uses photography as a tool to portray a world in ways that are thought provoking and visually challenging. You relate to the world through images. In doing so, you use your knowledge of the features of the medium of photography. Because in a broad sense, photographic images have their own character, offer specific opportunities and have a special position in the current visual culture. As a photographer, you also have knowledge of the language and meanings of images and you can apply these for your own purposes. The inter-connected curriculum looks at imagery, photography techniques, theoretical research knowledge, skills and understanding. International professional reality remains a crucial aspect of the programme. The curriculum is project oriented and stimulates a dynamic work situation in which students experiment, explore, make and reflect, and in so doing constantly come into contact with new environments, challenges and issues. The curriculum also looks at the continuously changing professional practice of today’s photographers. These days, the medium of photography is not restricted to a handful of professionals – almost everyone takes photos, often digital photos, and more and more people are able to digitally edit them. While everybody records their lives, manipulates their photos and publishes them on their own platforms such as social media and blogs, the professional photographer maintains the overview of the professional field and reflects on it. Photography is increasingly about the way in which the images’ uniqueness relates to the world, not only in terms of the visual culture, but to society in general. This means that you not only need the ability to create strong and very individual images, but images that strongly relate to photography as a medium. You also need to be able to collaborate with others and to make connections with your surroundings such as to other image creators, society, your public, in order to create work that stands out from the snapshots on social media. Creating Pioneers Our successful Photography alumni include: Barry van Leeuwen (nominated for the Photo Academy Awards); Marylene Rutten (winner of the Drempel Award); Marijke Groeneveld (winner of the Leiden Photography Festival); Csilla Klenyánszki; Benjamin Li; and Erik Kroes. PORTFOLIO CHECKLIST Are you … talented in visual arts? independent and responsible? dedicated and motivated? entrepreneurial? Then visit one of our Open Days or Open Evenings – and bring your portfolio! – and apply for admission. WHAT A selection of 10-15 works which were preceded by a creative process For example: designs, objects, photos, films, games, animations, fashion (accessories), furniture, models, drawings, posters, campaigns, paintings, usable artifacts and sculptures. You can publish and present all of this in a neat traditional portfolio folder, but you can also use different methods: 3D work can be brought in a (cardboard) box, digital work can be presented on a laptop or tablet. Please note: apart from these works, please show us some other things you created. Make a careful selection between the two. That way, we can assess to what extent you have an insight in your own qualities and your own work. [-]
