The Life Drawing Department has the objective of an artistic
analysis of drawing, as well as an introduction to the content and problems of object study.
The range of teaching
incorporates a co-ordinated programme, which involves the mutual supplementation of natural studies and constructive drawing,
the human image and drawing, proportion and line, anatomy for artists, and life studies, and creates links to the other course
of study at the “Angewandte”. Content is influenced to a special degree by the teaching staff, their objectives and methods.
Students are enabled to adopt a practice-oriented approach, whereby the basic principles of design possibilities, capabilities
and skills, as well as the handling of a diversity of drawing techniques, are to be seen as a springboard for individual artistic
work in the central artistic disciplines.
The tried and tested range of teaching, which examines the blend of traditional
and progressive, formally committed and artistically free content, is to be retained and provide a varied communications platform
for the specialist area by means of guest lectures, etc.
