AR 225 - Art and Design

Art and Design is a practical course that covers the most important areas of studio practice. It provides the understanding necessary to approach Art and Design in an active way, paying special attention to processes followed by artists, and helping students to discover the tools and the creativity that artists and designers use to explore reality. This course aims to use the everyday environment as a source of material and, being taught in Barcelona, it will take advantage of the vibrant art and design scene in this city.

The syllabus emphasizes individual initiative, imagination, and resourcefulness, striking a balance between art and design. As a creative field with no predetermined correct answers to the problems, infinite variations in individual interpretation and application are possible. Hence, it can be tailored to each person’s current abilities and skills. Students must provide their own materials.
