The module Sculpture enables the mastering of practical technical, technological, and theoretical aspects of sculpture through the development of creative abilities. The students’ investigative spirit and experimental work is developed during their studies, which further lays a foundation for personal creative expression. The programme further fa­cilitates the forming of academic professionals that can responsibly and inventively engage in the teaching process of fine art culture in institu­tions of elementary and high school education. In the first part of the studies attention is directed towards the modalities of analytical dealings with, primarily, the human figure and related themes, starting with a live model, which further helps develop visual perception and the vocabulary of sculpture terminology. In the following phase, the emphasis is on the research of sculptural forms in correlation with the expressive potential of traditional and contemporary materials, developing of creative thought and the ability of abstraction and visualisation. The final phase of studies is directed towards experimental work of a selective nature, the evolving of ideas and techniques on the basis of the consideration of creative freedoms and fostering individual expression.

This process will be made possible by working on their individual projects, by examining expressive features of drawings, its hidden dimensions and boundaries as well as establishing new language possibilities through the means of merging drawing with other artistic forms.

Within this module, students also have one course in graphic design so they can better understand the context in which their work is applied.

The aim of the module Illustration is to enable students to adopt theoretical and professional knowledge necessary for professional and creative work in the field of narrative illustration in books as well as editorials and conceptual illustrations, comics, concept design including traditional and digital illustration techniques.

Concept design is today a very popular field which implies the design of the characters and the environment for the animation, films and video games. Having this knowledge will give the students the possibility to find a job in gaming industry which is becoming more and more popular in our country and especially abroad.

Since the illustration belongs to applied arts field, it will be considered as a promising profession as long as there are publishing, advertising and entertainment industry (video games, animated films, smart phone applications etc.).

The programme of Interior Design at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad is an accredited study programme in the field of Applied Arts and Design.

Upon completion of the studies, the students are enabled to work independently in design and architectural studios, cultural institutions, within their own work or they can continue their education within the third cycle of academic studies (Doctoral studies).

CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION OF THE WORKS OF FINE AND APPLIED ARTS

New Master study programme Conservation and Restoration of the Works of Fine and Applied Arts (two year programme) is currently opening its doors to the first generation of students in the academic year 2017/2018.

The aim of this study programme is the education and training of experts in the field of conservation and restoration who can understand the flows of history, theory and philosophy of the protection of the cultural heritage and who have various types of knowledge in the field of art, social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and technology. Furthermore, they are able to plan and perform the conservation and restoration treatment, cooperate with the experts in similar fields and have critical awareness of the processes of protection and presentation of cultural heritage including the role of a conservator-restorer during that process.

To be a conserver-restorer, it is required to have a combination of academic knowledge and practical skills. In order to achieve this, the mandatory part of the study programme requires well-balanced teaching of theory and philosophy of the protection of cultural heritage, art techniques and materials, methods and techniques of conservation and natural sciences applied in conservation. Through this, students acquire advanced knowledge but also obtain certain breadth in perceiving the field of cultural heritage. By choosing elective courses, the students are guided towards the specific artistic techniques and the problems within conservation, while through their participation in projects on conservation they acquire the needed experience and skills.
