Learn fundamental skills to observe form building and representation. Introduction to material exploration through exercises in drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and writing skills to understand the world around and develop visual vocabulary. Students can get an overview of world civilizations through visual representations that mark the social, political and cultural shift.

Understanding form building through material exploration, understanding characteristics, decoding the visual language are some of the learning outcomes of this semester. Learn about different techniques of drawing, painting, sculpture and pottery to develop form building. An overview of the twentieth century through art, social, political, economical and cultural history form the lens of students to perceive the immediate world.

The semester will guide students to develop a deeper connection between the self and the world through material exploration and understanding materiality in 2-dimensional creative language. Art history (prehistory to medieval) will develop a lens that will help students to understand the conceptual and contextual development that shaped the present world. Students will choose electives from humanities, sciences and technologies to create their own curriculum.

Building on the learnings from the previous semester, students will take up advanced studios in painting and sculpture to understand 2 and 3-dimensional aspects of creative language. Additionally, they will learn about the non-tangible aspects of the cultural perspectives through different theories and art practices, art production under different patronage, and the role played by artists within the changing times.

Students will choose their specialisation ( painting, sculpture, mix media). Students will study contemporary art practices in the studio or art in the public domain. They will develop and sharpen conceptual learning and skill development by working with different materials to build a visual language. Furthermore, they will learn the philosophy of art from different eras and engage with art history, both as a distinct field and as an area that comes into conversation with other disciplines.

Know the historical and contemporary significance of the human form that can be used as a medium, material and exploration. Learn about the central contemporary debates in the philosophy of art, the impact of historical events such as industrialisation on art and culture and understand political and social changes and reflection through art practices.

Summer Internship

The semester will also require students to pursue internships which will be an important component in their learning process.

This semester introduces students to artistic research and methodologies, through philosophical debates in art criticism and contemporary practices. The semester culminates into a research paper, highlighting their individual practices and historical relevance. In-studio students focus on their portfolio building by developing an individual art language.

In the last semester, students will work with two mentors of their choice to build their final portfolio and present it to public viewing in the Graduate Show. In addition, they will write a dissertation on their selected topics where they will work with a mentor.
