The subjects: Artistic perception, Psychology of creativity, Artistic analysis and Artistic-visual project, are completely original subjects, which were developed and introduced by the College of Visual Arts. Even with all the other subjects, the contents were drafted on the basis of our own experience and observe the principle of synergy of the related content. Starting  with the traditional subjects of drawing and painting, we have created new and original subjects, such as Creative drawing and painting, Seminar of the creative drawing and painting, and Artistic-visual project, which were developed and designed in such a way, as to take the utmost account of the student’s own creative initiative and to guide him/her in his/her own specific visual-artistic expression in any medium.
