Tasks are assigned only by the tutor. These tasks are projects with a simple function structure and with the emphasis on the artistic aspect of the design. If the student is has lesser or limited experience in the area of fine arts, he/she is assigned the task consisting of a free composition. Thus the first year of studies becomes a preparatory one (equilizing).
