Introduction to the course

Features and Objectives of Art Lessons

"Learning arts". Many people might think that art is for talented and a special people. But in reality, it is a world open to all who are interested in art and tell themselves "I want to create something.”

Tiempo's art course aimsto "stimulate self-expression and communication skills while acquiring and developing various techniques with a conceptual purpose through arts." This coursewill allow you to experience a lot of stimuli from foreign cultures that are different from Japanese aesthetic values.

While providing students with the opportunity to gain new experiences, they will be able to create unique works that reflect their own desires and tastes.Or focus on creating only one work full of originality by properly balancing each aesthetic value and reflecting their own inner world, full of originality and creative independence.

In addition, we will also engage in artwork activities based on themesfrom Latin American culture while always connecting to the Spanish language.

You can choose what you want to try from paintings, drawings and sculptures and then receive advice from Professor Mori.
