Each year we offer one or two summer courses in some artistic
field within Fine Arts. It can be in Painting, Sculpture,
Photography, Performance, Video or something else.
Common for all our summer courses is that they are worth 15
ECTS. Teaching can be in Swedish or English depending on who will
hold the course. Classes are held in two two-week-long periods, one
in June right after the end of the spring term (week 24 and 25) and
one in August (week 33 and 34). Between the two teaching periods
you work individually with your own artistic work and the course
ends with a group exhibition where you get the chance to exhitbit
what you have been engaged in during the course.
This year we offer one course in performance (held in English)
and one course in painting (held in Swedish).
