The Studio of Art Training has developed to its current form from a two-semestral course, teaching drawing and painting only at two accredited restoration departments at the School of Restoration and Conservation Techniques. At present, the studio provides art training for students of all four accredited Bachelor and following two Master’s study programmes.
In the first and second semester, training is aimed at coping with basics of art and craft in the following disciplines: drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic art. Students acquire knowledge of perspective, composition and historical techniques, including relevant technology and technological processes. In the third semester, copying is included. The Studio of Art Training also provides lectures on anatomy and digital photography. As part of the teaching at the studio, there is an initial two-week block of plein air drawing and painting in the countryside, outside of school. During art training, the students develope complex art skills, as well as different specialized approaches on tasks related to specific requirements of the individual restoration departments.
