Aigaia art school puts its wares on display

One of the most important goals of the faculty is that each student successfully reaches the maximum of their potential

The annual exhibition of the Aigaia School of Fine Arts and Design for the academic year 2018 -2019 will take place from June 8 to 22.
The exhibition will be inaugurated on June 13 at 8pm in the building of the school, at Ayios Omoloyites avenue 81. It will be presented by painter Andreas Ladommatos.
The exhibition will be open Monday to Friday 10am – 7pm and Saturday 12pm – 1:30pm.
One of the most important goals of the faculty is that each student successfully reaches the maximum of their potential. This is primarily achieved through the development of artistic skills, experimentation with materials, methods and concepts, the promotion of artistic research, the ability to analyse and solve issues, and finally the development of critical thinking. The modernisation and use of new instruments in all disciplines, especially digital media and their multidimensional implementation, is encouraged. The development of individual expression and personal ideas is sometimes done with realistic approaches, abstract or even conceptual, so that each individual ultimately develops his own visual language and identity.
The school’s philosophy is that artists of the future must be taught methods of shaping their visual image, creating their visual identities as they prepare to become a creative cell of the artistic world. Visual instruction should not impart or reproduce certainties, but rely on the fluidity, relativity and mobility, and that accompany the concept of art.
The creative course pursued is not a pre-planned form of visual activities but varies according to the visual perception and artistic concerns of each student so that the annual exhibition is characterised each year by a diversity in content, techniques and messages.
