2-year Foundation Course "Traditional Techniques of  the Arts"
The two-year foundation course covers the techniques of classical art in a wide range. It is an independent training with a clear, predefined structure, which may be followed by the project study.

An examination of the "Old Masters" is more than to learning the classical techniques of art.  It is a practical analysis of many aspects – not only of painting techniques. It is based on four seminars: body and form, art and history, painting techniques, and individual studies. Each seminar teaches goal-directed thinking and action. It is a foundation of our culture. It is the optimal condition for all other courses of study of the visual arts.

The study program is based on the research of different forms and ways to create pictures to expand your own freedom of action with respect to art. The main focus is on drawing and painting. Among other topics sculpturing and three-dimensional work will be treated in the second study period.

As mentioned before the extremely different materials and methods of the "old masters" are one big goal of the training. This is based on the historical practice: from egg tempera, oil painting, acrylic painting, creating different grounds, and making the paint by yourself .The training of drawing skills takes the main part in the first step. Without that it makes no sense to go in the classical technics.

The program is oriented so that it brings a lot of benefits for all subsequent artistic paths  - for example: new media, video, photo, installation and so forth. The mastery of basic practical skills  is for almost all applications an enormous advantage. This advantage is learnign to sketch vivid and clear ideas with pen, ink, or three dimensions quickly, and of course to make it visible and achieve a certain quality. It is an advantage that persists throughout life, and characterizes the KUNSTGUT students already.
