Course detail

Creative Plein Air

FAST-AG050Acad. year: 2018/2019

Students will create a 3D piece of work in the field under the teacher supervision – a sculpture, an installation, or other real impact to the landscape. Students then document their work and any photos and videos created as part of the documentation are further utilized by the students to create their final presentations. Students are required to create, document and present their work to the colleagues. This is the basis of their assessment in this module.
The course is organized with the focus on the piece of work selected. Within the open air students work on projects individually or in groups. Students will gain invaluable experience of creating their own piece of work and then present it to their colleagues.
