Annotation of study programme

The Site-Specific Art program is designed to train a contemporary artist who can initiate and implement independent art projects, expanding them in collaboration with professionals in other fields – architects, designers, restorers, clients, curators, gallery owners, operators of the private and public sectors, other artists and cultural creators.

During the fresco-mosaic specialisation stage in the first and second courses, the students gain the basic skills for their occupation: they master the techniques of fresco casting, sgraffito carving, direct and reverse mosaic. During the stained glass specialisation stage in the first and the second courses, the students master the technologies of classical stained glass: stained glass, tiffany, glass sticking, matting, etc. Students of both specializations acquire the basics of academic drawing (still life, portrait, nude, figurative, anatomical drawing, freehand drawing) and easel painting (watercolor, oil painting).  During the third-fourth years, the focus falls on the formation and development of personal creative practice, its placement in public spaces, and the relationship with the selected architectural or natural environment.

The graduates will be able to express their thoughts in the language of art, visualise and adapt their works in a site-specific location and critically evaluate the creative process. They can also join relevant social and cultural life processes and reflect them through various artistic means of expression.

Professional career opportunities

Graduates of the program can engage in individual artistic and commissioned activities, participate in national and international exhibitions, projects, residency programs, symposiums, festivals, art competitions in public spaces. Moreover, they are able to implement wall paintings and stained glass works in an urban environment and to continue studies in the second cycle of studies.
