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.
