Visual Arts Degree Program at Girne American University covers a range of materials, forms, and traditions both representational and nonrepresentational. Our students will explore their individual visions within the context of developing disciplined studio practices as well as developing their work within a wide range of technical, aesthetic, and conceptual approaches.
Critiques and seminars will lead by faculty and visiting artists which will provide students with the form and structure to discuss their work in relation to contemporary art issues. Beginning painting courses introduce the concepts and materials of painting, furthering students’ understanding of space, image, and colour Intermediate and advanced courses cover the properties and possibilities of modern media. In advanced painting classes, students build upon their technical facility and conceptual base to develop personal directions.
All classes emphasize individual aesthetic choices and expression and the exploration of contemporary critical issues, encouraging students to take responsibility for the definition and direction of his or her own work.
