Barcelona welcomes Barcelona Academy of Art

The first art school in Spain based on traditional methodologies that will be a hotbed of contemporary figurative artists

cer

 

 

On September 19th Barcelona Academy of Art will open its doors to welcome those artists wishing to improve their skills with teaching methods derived from classical-realist tradition. It is a methodology which was originated in the Renaissance and revived by the main realistic atelier scholars of the late eighteenth century (especially by master painters such as Gérôme, Bonnat and Carolus-Duran).

Known for being cosmopolitan, with a mild climate, its safe Mediterranean beaches, always aware of the latest trends but respecting its historical background, its many cultural events & activities, and because it is a plural, tolerant and multicultural city, Barcelona turns out to be the best choice for international students. At Barcelona Academy of Art students will be able to reach the highest educational level while they enjoy exploring an incredible city.

The Academy is aimed at an audience interested in learning how to paint, draw and sculpt in a traditional way, within the parameters of figuration and realism. Along with deep and practical knowledge of materials and almost forgotten methods derived from academic art, students consolidate a good foundation as the beginning of a future personal development as an artist to continue creating quality contemporary art in our time.

The courses offered at Barcelona Academy of Art include programs in drawing, painting, digital painting, sculpture and digital sculpture. There will also be weekend seminars, special courses (Easter and Summer), and workshops that will surely help students learn and improve their methods, procedures, approaches and techniques of drawing, painting and sculpture from the best professionals. Jordi Díaz Alamà, Eudald de Juana, David Masson, Sara Stendlung, Joe Altwer, Terra Chapman, Roser Masip, Conrad Roset, Xavier Dènia and Ismael Fuentes are some of the teachers leading the academic program.

Barcelona Academy of Art will offer three internships to those students who apply for the intensive program and get the approval of the Academy to perform the specific tasks listed to achieve the economic benefit. Each student will possess a student card so that (s)he can have a discount or special promotion at our associated establishments.

The close collaboration with the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) and the communication agency TALENT&CO, will turn the Barcelona Academy of Art educational proposal into an engine of an artistic movement around figurative art that will help promote the work of both the school and its students, favouring their inclusion in the current art market.

Barcelona Academy of Art aspires to be the center of excellence in teaching and dissemination of drawing as the foundation of any artistic learning. The proposed academic program has been created with the aim of claiming the technical and vocational training of the artist, in order to ensure the future quality in realistic-figurative art, an art that, without a tradition, can hardly survive.

Technarte in Spain

header_10_press_release_22_mar_EN

The architecture and the revitalization of urban spaces take particularly importance in Technarte 2010 with Bilbao Interaktive, a seminar dedicated to the design of interactive installations in public spaces, integrated into the Programme of the Conference. At the end of the seminar, Jürgen Scheible will carry out a demonstration of his project Mobispray: he will "paint" with light beams the Arriaga Theatre in Bilbao, Spain.

Among the speakers, we should emphasise Cameron McNall (Electroland, USA), Els Vermnag (Lab-au, Belgium), Ash Neru (United Visual Artists, United Kingdom) or Jürgen Scheible (Finland), responsible of the development of very avant-garde projects all around the world.

Cameron McNall will show the projects in which Electroland is involved. Electroland is a team that creates objects, interactive experiences and large-scale public art projects. Each project is site-specific and may use a broad range of media, including light, sound, images, motion, architecture and interactivity. Participants can interact with buildings, spaces and each other in new and exciting ways, creating new relationships between people and public space and shifting the boundaries of private experience in the public sphere.

Els I.R.L. Vermang is one of the youngest members of the international scene of electronic art. Since 2003, she is part of LAB [au], Laboratory for Architecture and Urbanism, where the four members create interactive artworks, audiovisual performances and scenographies, for which it develops its own software and interfaces.

Ash Nehru is Software Director at United Visual Artists, a British-based collective whose current practice spans permanent architectural installation, live performance and responsive installation. They aim to work on a diverse and expanding range of projects, drawn from the commercial and non-commercial arenas, and to collaborate with a wide range of artists and companies.
