Graduate studies of Painting

The studies lasts 1 year (2 semesters), during which 60 ECTS credits are awarded.


Through an individual mentoring approach, the graduate study encourages the development of personal visual thinking and finding one’s proper expression. Research and innovation are encouraged, and students are trained for the participation in various projects in the broad field of contemporary art. An analytical and critical approach is being adopted during the studies. This also develops the ability of contextualizing individual artistic work within the broader historical or current artistic framework.

The graduate study is completed with the preparation and drafting of the final thesis as an independent and creative statement of the student.


Upon completion of the graduate studies of Painting the academic title of Master of Painting is obtained.


Lectures of undergraduate and graduate studies of Painting are held in classes/ateliers in the building of the Academy of Fine Arts in Ilica 85.
