Language of instruction
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).
To teach young people endowed with a natural art creative talent the methodology of design, to help them to understand the wider context of the objects they design. To help them to grasp the continuity of their area in the cultural history and the ethical aspects of design creation.
