The follow-up year is intended as a follow-up to the foundation year. In this follow-up year, the course emphasises the various techniques and approaches used when creating visual art. There are lectures from different tutors, each with his/her own particular module of approximately six lessons during which they will issue specific assignments.
The accent is on further exploring the experience acquired during the foundation year. By allowing you to work longer on an assignment, you will have more time to explore and develop the various techniques. You will be experimenting with drawing and painting-materials and expand your technical capabilities.
Examples from contemporary art and art history supply a frame of reference from which to glean new ideas and to give new insight into your own work.
During the individual guidance from your teacher and end-of-session discussions, you get constructive feedback from your instructor as well as from your fellow students.
It is normal to take this course as a follow-up to the Foundation course, but with basic experience you could also enter the follow-up year straight away.
The follow-up year starts twice each year; early February and mid-September.
Each half year you follow 3 modules.
After you have done the first half year, you can continue at the same time in a second half year to take the other 3 modules of the follow-up year.
