Training description

A visual art teacher helps developing the sensitivity and the curiosity of young people about art and culture by means of different projects.
Therefore, the Bachelor’s Degree  in Visual arts programme has two goals: on the one hand, it aims at teaching students to practice different artistic disciplines and on the other hand, it aims at proposing educational tools which are appropriate and innovative.
Creativity, aesthetic sense, observation skills and artistic practice are competences on which the programme is focused thanks to the learning activities but also thanks to workshops and study trip.
The students are also trained for structuring the educational knowledge and for creating methodological strategies in order to facilitate their pupils’ learning and to increase their awareness for the different visual art expressions.

All this programme is aimed at training responsible teachers who are open to the world.
