You will gain insight into the many directions the abstract art contains and of course try creating paintings from the very small to the huge ones.
In this subject we will work with three dimensional designs in the form of sculptures. Everything is possible in this subject, and no materials are too difficult or boring to be part of a creative concept. We will work with large and small projects, with shapes, materials and colors. There will be a focus on idea development and the journey from idea to finished work.
If you are curious about the many different genres the art world has to offer, then it's time to go in depth with your own creativity.
This is the subject where you will meet a wide range of creative directions and tasks such as painting, drawing, street art, land art, photography and much much more.You will create artworks from scratch, learn to realize your ideas, dive into art history, explore design languages and techniques and learn to reflect on your own and others' art.

Take a journey into the history of Street Art and learn more about one of the most important art forms of our time. Through images, texts and films, we will try to understand the artists' motives and become acquainted with strong societal issues such as consumer culture, power, religion, surveillance and capitalism. In addition, we dive into a melting pot of directions, trends and subcultures that revolve around hip hop, advertising, social media, politics, sex and much more. After understanding the genre better we will do our own street art at school based on your ideas.
One of the newest directions in art is the digital one. It is manipulative, virtual and uses tools such as AI, AR and VR. It is disfiguring, challenging and nerdy, and challenges the classic approaches to art as we know them.
So if you have the courage to throw away pencils and brushes and instead use computers, tablets and smartphones in the creation of art, then this is the subject for you?
