"beautiful thing" to cherish the power to feel "beautiful", we learn.
Among people who are eager to study Japanese painting, some are attracted by the beautiful and interesting materials; some are indulged in the ancient Japanese paintings after seeing them; and some want to try to repair arts… As a person who loves painting, the reason for why I chose to study Japanese painting is “I am Japanese”. The Japanese Painting Specialty has prepared courses for us to explore the possibilities of performance through various materials. At the same time, there are also cooperation activities with various regions, and courses having us to draw temples or the ceiling of shrines.
Oil painting is aimed at inspiring the specialties of each student. Based on the basic knowledge, oil painting performs the thought and philosophy of a writer through media expression. The world of oil painting is very colorful and diverse, including graphic art known as modern art, installation art, and conceptual art which are expressed in many view angles including humorous expression techniques. Oil painting is a self-exploration skill, and it can also cultivate talents that can abandon the conventional perspective of art and create art freely in a unique way.
Learning three-dimensional art is such an experience: you will not only stay at the level of visual expression, but use all your sensory system to actually touch and feel the materials and the process of making shapes. The created work is something that exists in reality, and you can look at from various angles, pet it or even tap it and touch it. This practical experience can also be said to be the charm of three-dimensional works. A good understanding of the characteristics of the material, and then the selection of materials suitable for creation are also an important part of the creation of the work. We hope that our courses will allow you to feel the joy of seeing materials becomes a work and becomes reality from an impression.
「Regional Culture Creation」
In addition to cultivate the student’s ability to distinguish authenticity and falseness through art, our teaching aims also include having students study the abundant natural and historical landscapes around the university, strengthen their connection with the society by deepening their pride of and love to the region, thus achieving the goal of promoting “Urban Construction”.
In addition, in our education and research, we not only require students to learn local culture, to learn the knowledge, technology, and thinking skills required by modern society, but also hope that our students can study Japan’s unique culture from a global perspective, and master the ability to look at issues and exchange from broad and diversified perspectives.
