In the curriculum, an important place is reserved for specialised instruction. The theoretical and practical skills related to the speciality include the following: the generation and development of ideas, composition, requirements of consumer goods, as well as knowledge about material technology, firing technologies, artisanal techniques, design techniques, plasterwork, etc. However, the students also have access to academy-wide theoretical courses, and can learn about painting, drawing, sculpture, general composition, computer skills, photography, etc.
The importance of independent work has increased significantly. Many of the students use the opportunity to study as exchange students at other schools of higher education in order to extend the academic year.
Due to the small size of the speciality, we have supported the students’ academic pursuits and participation in exchange programmes internationally within the speciality and also between specialities.
More than ever before, it is possible to obtain all the necessary tools, equipment and materials required for ceramics. However, the possibilities of using our own domestic clays and ecologically simple and inexpensive firing techniques have yet to be explored.
