Drawing I

D111 - ECTS

To introduce and develop skills in drawing, understood as an operative instrument of knowledge and recognition; to develop perceptual and visual acuity in relation to different types of drawing; to understand drawing as a vehicle that operates, interacts and relates our perception with representation; to develop skills in understanding, manipulating and selecting different ways of making and using drawing representational systems; to provide knowledge in the context of drawing; to learn the meaning and know how to apply the basic terminology of drawing; to alert the student on the importance of the heritage and history of drawing.

Design - Introduction

ITD111 - ECTS

1 – Autonomy on research and experimentation with different grammars of visual communication, stimulating approach to laboratory procedures towards reflection and analysis of results.
2 - During both semesters there will be developed exercises that seek to question the visual media as communication as well as their strategies for creating, processing and transmission of content.
3 - Experimentation and methodologies based on a speculative approach of Communication Design, as well as the simulation in real contexts.
4 - Development and research of a graphic expression based in the history of visual communication and practice of contemporary design.
5 - Understand the role of design in society, subscribing to topics that explore the connections between the different audiences on Design, the relationship between Design and ethics, among others.

Geometry

G102 - ECTS

With the study of geometry, we want to encourage the logical and deductive abilities of the student, building an analytic attitude and strengthening the synthetical thinking on the world of objects and and spaces. Assuming geometry as the structure of the drawing, students should acquire knowledge that would enable them to use the projective geometry's systems of linear representation as the based for the knowledge and understanding of shapes.

Art History I

HA101 - ECTS

This course is intended to provide students of various courses of FBAUP a common area of reflection on art, as part of cultural systems that have been changing over time and which differ in the various civilizations that originated them. Thus, the course’s program will be structured around major themes, which can raise the confrontation and dialogue among students with very different experiences and motivations. The course covers the historical period of the Medieval period, which gave rise to wonderful artistic productions that played a key role in the development of Western consciousness. The approach will be both historical and thematic, aiming to give students the analytical tools fundamental to the study and appreciation of Medieval art, both in its original socio-historical context, and on their importance and universal significance. The aim is to stimulate interest in reading of contemporary texts, studies and essays, and develop the capacity to understand the images, providing students with tools to observe and interpret the art object. The confrontation with artworks, themes and issues essential to the history of art will enable each student to weave its own basis for reflection.

ICC101 - ECTS “Introdução à Cultura Contemporânea” é uma base introdutória que tem por objectivo fornecer capacidades e ferramentas para compreender a contemporaneidade e a nossa cultura, bem como para introduzir um universo alargado de referências que permitirá ao estudante compreender questões culturais com as quais os artistas visuais e os designers hoje se debatem. A disciplina explora a transversalidade da noção de “cultura” e as contradições inerentes à condição contemporânea, potenciando uma multiplicidade de aproximações e de leituras que instiguem no estudante a capacidade de reflexão crítica e apoiem a sua (futura) acção. Exploram-se as referências das Culturas Visuais e da Cultura Urbana, para compreender as manifestações e os palcos onde a cultura se manifesta, seja enquanto fenómeno quotidiano, seja nas práticas artísticas.

Art History II

HA102 - ECTS

This course is intended to provide the students of the various courses of FBAUP with a common area of reflection on art, as part of cultural systems that have been changing over time and which differ in the various civilizations that originated them. Thus, the course’s program will be structured around major themes, which can raise the confrontation and dialogue among students with very different experiences and motivations. The course covers the historical period of the Renaissance, which gave rise to wonderful artistic productions that played a key role in the development of Western consciousness. The approach will be both historical and thematic, aiming to give students the analytical tools fundamental to the study and appreciation of Renaissance art, both in its original socio-historical context, and on their importance and universal significance. The aim is to stimulate interest in reading of contemporary texts, studies and essays, and develop the capacity to understand the images, providing students with tools to observe and interpret the art object. The confrontation with artworks, themes and issues essential to the history of art will enable each student to weave its own basis for reflection.
