Can art be taught? Maybe, maybe not. The Liechtenstein School of Art is the equivalent of the Liechtenstein Music School when it comes to visual arts. Both institutions focus on learning techniques and supporting the pupils' own creativity.
The Liechtenstein School of Art offers courses for children, teenagers and adults as well as a host of further education courses, including a "preparation course for media and materials" for youngsters wishing to pursue a career in a creative profession. Workshops and ateliers provide ideal conditions for practical work in the lessons, seminars and the one-year preparation course.
The lessons and workshops for adults are designed to give participants the chance to experience and practise expressing themselves using different visual arts such as painting, drawing, modelling and even jewellery design.
Classes for teenagers focus on digital image processing, building models, painting, graffiti, printing, photography and much more. Other highlights include graphic design workshops, art camps, design workshops and an introduction to what life is like working in a creative profession.
The "preparation course for media and materials" teaches basic techniques and takes a closer look at a range of media and materials. It includes a section on art history as well as art theory and media theory. This course is ideal for those interested in art and design or budding professionals wishing to pursue a career in a creative profession.
