Exchange programme in the BA Visual Arts
Campus Ghent / Sint-Lucas

Curriculum

As artistic disciplines within the graphic arts printmaking and drawing are a close-knit group. The direct notation as well as the printed image and the drawing are tackled as separate means of expression  with the programme. In the atelier you will acquire several technical drawing and printmaking skills. While doing so you will permanently explore the boundaries of the medium by exposing the relation between looking, thinking and feeling. Slowly but surely you will develop a personal artistic language and you will get the chance to master technical skills such as etching, lithography, offset and engraving.

The emphasis lies on authorship and personal commitment. Great importance is attached to the fundamental research into images and visual practice. This artistic research is tested against academic standards specific to the arts, and flanked by a fair share of theory in the curriculum. During your education you will be supported by highly involved teachers: active artists, designers and theorists, all experts in their own field. The programme upholds an open culture which makes it a sanctuary where you can fully develop yourself.

Programme for exchange students

The Visual Arts programme on campus Ghent offers academically oriented BA and MA degrees in Textile Design, Graphic Design and Fine Arts. Within Fine Arts students can either develop a hybrid fine arts practice or choose to focus on one of the following disciplines: Sculpture-Glass-Ceramics, Illustration, Painting, Mixed Media, Drawing-Printmaking. Exchange students are welcome to join the programme in 2BA or 3BA (first semester, second semester or a full year) or in MA (first semester). The study progress at your home university and the quality of your portfolio will determine your  enrolment in either BA or MA at LUCA.                          

The atelier will be the main part of your study programme at LUCA. Additionally, you can opt for drawing classes, English taught theoretical courses and Dutch classes (off campus). A welcome week with introductions to Flemish historical and contemporary art, the city of Gent and the campus is organised each semester.          

We can offer you an exchange programme of 30 ECTS credits. Detailed information about the offered course units can be found via http://onderwijsaanbod.luca-arts.be/opleidingen/e/
