Drawing on them, they deepen understanding by researching conceptual expression, art ideology, technologies and materials. Painting MA‘s are able to define, explain, illustrate, portray, paraphrase, interpret. They understand the most recent art concepts and theories. Painting MA‘s innovatively apply skills and knowledge from the first cycle, in creative projects they demonstrate abilities to apply contemporary techniques and technologies, to evaluate them critically.
