This course is a unique program which integrates the essential knowledge in the Visual Arts and Graphic Design. The students will undergo a program where the main curriculum components are synced with the Painting & Drawing One-Year program (for the full list of subjects see https://www.artac.org/one-year-program) and Graphic Design periodical workshops.
The students will have access to the workshop sessions during January and May which will be entirely focusing on Design. These sessions will run simultaneously with the main program, which means that during the weeks of the workshops the students will be taking only design subjects and no main program subjects.
Design-focused workshop sessions:
Calligraphy and illustration & character creating;
Logo & brand design.
The language of instruction is English.
The program is meant for those who would like to make design their profession - for those aiming for a successful career in a design studio, advertising or branding agency and publishing house. One can as well pursue a career as an illustrator or story-board artist in the cartoon/animation film industry.
Goals of the program:
To prepare individuals for a professional career, capable and fully competent for a wide range of projects in the field of graphic design, as well as production, planning, management, and communication.
