Our school program was planned by the Basis teaching staff, which is comprised of leading artists active in the art world. The program focuses on thorough practical studies and intensive independent studio work that encourages appreciation for materials, work processes, practical research and openness to artistic creation in all its forms. The practical studies are supported by theoretical studies, in order to broaden the students' horizons, as we believe that an artist is first and foremost a man of culture.
The program also provides a broad introduction to the art world, as well as extensive knowledge and expertise in a specific field. It includes a variety of learning experiences and opportunities that expand the students' knowledge and prepare them for life as professional, active and independent artists.
The studies are conducted in small and intimate classrooms, personal studios, and fully equipped workshops and labs that invite the students to experience, practice and hone their skills beyond school hours.
In addition, we have various extra-curricular activities, such as evening sessions of model sketching, meetings with artists, special projects (noise weeks) and more.
Our school program encourages and supports students who are serious about their studies and see themselves taking an active part in the art world. All students receive a living expenses scholarship that enables them to dedicate most of their time to their studies and artistic endeavors.
