The classical ART college offers a number of one-year courses in periods of 30 lesson weeks, which can be taken separately or in combinations of your choice. A course 'composition techniques'; a course 'form theory, and anatomy'; a course 'spatial suggestion and perspective' and a course 'art history' (the latter spread over 2 periods).
Each course consists of two components on a weekly basis: a theoretical explanation and practical exercises, including an assignment. The latter is submitted and discussed on a weekly basis. The practical exercises follow a training in drawing and/or painting. Art history is global and stimulates out of the box thinking.
Every 6th week is dedicated to an online reflection
Courses consist of lesson packages sent out weekly, theoretical introductions combined with home assignments and introductions to painting and drawing techniques.
At the end of the academic year, participants are coached with the composition of a personal portfolio.
The academic year consists of 30 lesson weeks, divided into 5 study blocks. For each block, both theoretical and practical visual aspects are explored in depth.
Online education is individual. Every week a teaching package is sent with explanations and examples. This is always linked to a practical assignment. Within 5 days the completed assignments will be returned as a photo.
The comments, possibly with corrections and/or instructions, will be sent together with the next package.
After 5 weeks of teaching programmes and assignments, a reflection will take place in the 6th week. This takes place online in a video conference (time in consultation).
In the course of the academic year 4 free fortnightly work periods are included, in which the participant incorporates the subject matter under his own steam. These free work periods coincide with the school holidays in the Netherlands.
The main advantage of online education is flexibility.
For example, you can enter several times a year (each time at the start of a new study block).
You can also create your own learning programme by following several courses next to each other or one after the other at your own discretion and preference.
The coaching is one-on-one and can also be easily adjusted to the individual demand.
And the place of residence is not important in online education.
