AUTUMN SEMESTER 2018/2019 COURSES

Instruction in English or in double languages (Estonian and English).

All practical art courses offered by the Center for Arts allow students the flexibility to pose and solve various tasks based on one’s preparedness, personality and level of skills because a lot of the supervising and instructing is individual. 

The university provides students with easels, planks, trestles or glasses to use for holding the utensils. 

Depending on the course, students need to acquire necessary materials themselves. For example: paper, cardboard, canvas, pencils, eraser, painting supplies (paints, brushes, palette, cups and cloths), charcoal, thumbtack or scotch tape, protective gear such as apron, gown and gloves. Information that is more detailed is available in the description of the specific course and/or upon registering to the course.

The course is meant for all, especially beginners in art. No previous skills are needed. The course is both for those who seek "pure art" improvisation experience, skills, joy and also for those who are interested in art as an additional tool used to support other fields - e.g. as a source for creativity, tool for brainstorming new ideas, for creative illustration, but also perhaps as a tool for rational analysis and interdisciplinary synergy.

There will be ready exercises but there is also freedom to improvise and experiment. Participants are welcome to connect the process with their own field of activity / study / project or some other personal topic. Exercise examples: impromaps, blind drawing, co-operative drawing, emotion / status drawing, theme drawing, cliche.

Needed materials by student: drawing papers and pencils, precise information from lecturer.


Looking at Art  ENG

12.09–7.11
Wed 12.15 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Sat, 13.10 seminar in Tallinn

To whom: For everyone who is interested to develop the skills of interpreting works of art and in deepening their knowledge about the story behind an artwork and art exhibition as well as looking at the multi-layered relationships between art and contemporary societies.

The course will take you to exhibition halls and galleries to meet the artwork. Mythological minimalism and the ironic reality in painting with its relation to the critique of consumerism are just some of the possible topics under discussion in the seminars.

This course helps to deepen the comprehension of artworks via different angles, for example through studying the artists’ techniques and how they are connected to the present time. We look how a curated or artist-made exhibition influences the perceptions of the viewer.

The students will be keeping a diary the whole time and the course will conclude with a written work. PS! Please consider the cost of some exhibition visits in your budget.
