FINE ARTS LAB
A space to learn how to express ideas and emotions.
A space for creativity and personal expression through the practice of the manual tools of drawing, sculpture, colour…
Students experiment with numerous expression techniques to develop and strengthen their creativity. They are introduced into the fundamentals of ideation and aesthetic criteria to apply to their craft and design projects.
The Fine Arts Lab runs an open practice and experimentation, where each student follows their own and personal creative path.
The space of digital skills in their natural environment.
The contemporary artisan needs designer-like digital modelling and brand communication skills.
In this space, students are introduced to these specific fields:
- The technical representation of the object through three-dimensional modelling.
- Brand communication and design, or branding
Students gain the technical know-how for both the digital representation of the object for the use of digital prototyping and self-production techniques, and the communication of the project and branding.
The Digital Lab has a practical and applied statement with a personalized mentoring for the learning path.
This happens in the Design FabLab, the space for experimentation and exploration. A teacher facilitator guides the group of students through an open learning process.
In this open and changing space, the group receives inspirational visits and training from professional experts and artisans, who share their knowledge on techniques and materials, culture, sustainable thinking, processes, anthropology, trends. These pills nourish the creativity of the student, who will then work on the exploration, in-depth study and maximum experimentation of the proposed materials.
The aim of this space is for students to acquire knowledge of materials and techniques – artisan and contemporary, manual and digital –, and to nurture their thinking and creativity with the values of a comprehensive – cultural, social, economic and environmental, sustainable development.
Each student will build their path based on their identity, their concerns and fields of interest, which is reflected in the results of the laboratory, as diverse as the participants of the creative experience.
The third year is a professionalising course in which take place collaborations with different stakeholders linked to the Craft & Design economic sector.
Students carry out internships with luxury brands, contemporary artisans, and institutions ambassadors of contemporary craft with artistic vision.
Besides, students acquire the entrepreneurial tools necessary for designing a successful business model and create their own brand.
Finally, after maturing all the experimentation, concepts and practice, students develop their final thesis, that becomes a personal signature. This is shared internationally with a Graduation Show.
