Reform of the Undergraduate Studies Curriculum

The project for the Reform of the Undergraduate Studies Curriculum included upgrading the subject areas of Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking and developing the Photography, Graphic Arts and Multimedia labs, in order to keep up with new developments resulting from the evolution of digital technology.

Specifically, in the area of Painting, the Project focused on organising seminars on the use of new technologies as a medium for artistic expression and on digital imaging and video art.
In the area of Sculpture, improvements were made to the Computer Lab and the foundry.
In the area of Printmaking, a number of seminars and workshops were organised, on the following topics:

• Methodology and Practical Application of non-toxic, environmentally-friendly Printmaking Methods
• Digital Printmaking – Printmaking and contemporary technology
• Print and electronic art in Printmaking

In addition, elective compulsory workshops were supplemented either by seminars (Stage Design, Graphic Arts) or by new staff members (Photography, Multimedia).

In terms of Central support, the actions undertaken as part of the project Reform of the Undergraduate Studies Curriculum included establishing the Athens School of Fine Arts Press, restoring, repairing and digitalising a number of typefaces of great artistic and historical value held by the School and organising events and activities to publicise the results of the Project and inform the public.

In particular, three books with a total of 1,500 pages were translated, printed and released. Furthermore, the ASFA Press produced a number of experimental art publications and its publishing activities were tied in with the teaching process of the Graphic Arts, Typography and Book Art Studio.
