Master Program in Art Education and Teaching
This master program was developed for students who have received basic education in the sphere of Fine Arts and who would like to continue working in educational institutions or studios as art instructors. The duration of the master's program is two years. A alternatively, it is possible to complete only the first year of the training and receive a certificate of attendance. In the 2 years of training, we provide the necessary professional, practical and theoretical skills so that the future instructor can teach art effectively. Moreover, our master's program includes a teaching internship where the student assists art professors during practical lectures and lessons at the academy. A regular individual colloquium is scheduled with each of the students to give feedback on their teaching performance and offer professional advice. At the end of the training, students will have an opportunity to teach an art class themselves and to have a unique experience working with international students.
The master program includes such subjects as painting, drawing, composition, Plein-air painting, copy practice as well as other subjects relevant for professional art education. In addition to the main subjects, we also offer courses in:
Philosophy of Art / Worldview
Our master's program in art education and teaching is effective because theoretical knowledge in various art disciplines combines practical application in the form of an on-going teaching internship. Professors advise each student on their performance and share their knowledge and experience in teaching art.
