Instruction of the Fine Arts
Since the establishment of the Education of Fine Arts in the end of 1980’s, with 20 years’ development, we have made fruitful achievements in both of teaching and academic researching. Based on the graduate programs of Art and Design and the undergraduate programs of Painting, Animation and Photography, we were approved to establish our "Primary Master Program" in 2011. Now we have four directions for undergraduate which are Chinese and Western Painting Research, Animation Research, Photography Art Research and Art History. As well as, we have four academic research centers which are Digital Media Art Research Center (key Laboratory of Beijing), Digital Art Education and Practice Center (representative center of experimental education of Beijing), Animation Art Research Center (key laboratory of BIGC) and Art Research Center. All of the research centers are supported by the National New Media Industry Base and China Museum of Printing.
Highlights of Fine Arts
Combining "fine arts and digital technology", "fine arts and printing culture" and "fine arts and cultural innovative industry", and supported by the historical heritage of Beijing and the cultural innovative industry, the fine art major built its own highlights which include four aspects:
1, Based on the traditional subjects such as Chinese Painting, Oil Painting, Print and Illustration, via the realistic and abstract creative work, Fine Arts places great emphasis on the practice of using material, printing techniques and digital techniques, and focus on the research of art’s independency, diversity and modernity.
2, Fine Arts combines the national characteristics with animation and builds the strong relationship between the animation art research and animation industry. Through these works, Fine Arts established a comprehensive ideology of animation culture.
3, Based on the research of commercial photography and high-quality photograph creation, Fine Arts focus on doing the integration between the digital art communication and commercial culture.
4, Aim at studying local, national art and culture, Fine Arts strengthens the research of the local art and culture, national art and culture, traditional art and the culture of design by using the method of comparing and analyzing the theories, images and videos.
