The conception of the studies also tries to develop the long-term specific character of the department, which focuses on issues of art and developing the skills of teachers to work with children and secondary school students in galleries with art originals. The programme offers a comprehensive professional path to the development of creativity, methodical work and students' own artistic activities.
