The Academic Program in Art – Art is Blossoming in the Negev
The Program in Art educates its graduates as teachers of art who promote multi-cultural aesthetic concepts, and who act as agents of culture for a variety of artistic perspectives, and who work as active artists themselves.
Graduates of the program are educational and creative leaders, who channel personal processes in combination with communal-social processes and needs, joining action and creativity.
The program conveys a method of visual development and provides teachers and students alike with a visual language, aesthetic values and the development of a variety of literate approaches. The department is multi-cultural and encourages cooperative work between all the sectors.
As part of their professional training of becoming experienced and motivating art teachers, our students study extensively art history and take part in various hands-on art workshops, such as oil painting, water color painting, sculpture, installation, performance arts, mixed media, photography, video art, and computer art.
