Decorative Arts

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

The decorative arts refer to the design and manufacture of aesthetically pleasing, yet functional, objects. The elements of the decorative arts are often seen in interior design. Because the items created through decorative arts are functional in nature, this field of study is different from fine art, which produces beauty for beauty's sake alone.

Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

Master of Design and Crafts

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus 2 years August 2017 Estonia Tallinn

The Estonian Academy of Arts offers a Master's programme in Design and Crafts, delivered in English. The students enter a common programme but also select a discipline: ceramics, glass art and design, jewellery and blacksmithing, textile design, leather art and accessory design, or fashion design. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Decorative Arts in Europe. The Estonian Academy of Arts' two-year Design and Crafts MA programme prepares students for professional practice and helps them identify their own positions as artists — within their communities, society, design field, global economy, natural environment and other contexts. The programme provides students with as many real-world, hands-on situations as possible by giving them access to practising professionals and diverse opportunities. The programme also develops and changes with the students. With each new group, we start with roundtable discussions to find out what you actually want. What experiences do you value? What is the focus of your interests? What are your professional dreams? The students enter a common programme but also select a specialisation. Students who commence studies in the Design and Crafts programme will remain closely connected with their chosen discipline. Regardless of the specialisation, the MA programme focuses on collaboration. This includes group tasks that cross disciplines, where students with different backgrounds and study experience work together. A significant part of the coursework takes the form of workshops (supervised by international lecturers), which aim to break routine and provide inspiration. Design and Crafts specialisations: ceramics glass art and design jewellery and blacksmithing textile design leather art and accessory design fashion design Material-based design and craft disciplines have a unique outlook and philosophy, and the Estonian Academy of Arts is one the few places in the world where it is possible to study in some of these fields at the MA level. Each MA graduate should be the best in the world in something — whether this be in producing an ingenious product, having a unique artistic position or demonstrating in-depth, materials-based research. The Design and Crafts MA programme is also an ideal entry point for international students wishing to continue their studies in the EAA doctoral programme. Tuition per year: 1500 EUR / 1640 USD ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS Application (submitted through Dream Apply by May 1st) 50€ application fee (paid via bank transfer) Bachelor’s degree Official transcript of records (translated into Estonian, English or Russian and notarised) Proof of English proficiency: FCE or CAE, IELTS 5.5+ or TOEFL 70+ Copy of the data page of your passport or ID card CV A relevant portfolio (for your chosen specialisation) Essay about your Master’s thesis project or vision Interview [-]

Top Part time Masters in Decorative Arts in Europe. This course is for people who want to develop a specialism in glass, making use of the outstanding facilities at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland. We don’t require previous study of glass, but most students have experience in a subject related to art and design. This course will help you develop a synergy of creative ideas and technical skills. You might focus on one of the three main areas: hot glass, kiln glass, or architectural glass - or combine approaches, and in doing so establish yourself as a professional glass artist. You will be using world-class facilities, and have access to 26 glass kilns, a state-of-the-art water-jet cutter, a hot glass workshop, two cold working studios, a glass mould-making workshop, architectural glass studio and glass and ceramics print studio. We do not have a ‘house style’; instead you will be encouraged and supported to develop your own focus. You will be encouraged to develop your independent creativity, improve your technical skills through expert support, and develop academic skills in research and communication. During the course we encourage you to develop your personal practice through studio work, critical studies, professional practice, research, critiques, analysis and questioning. You’ll be joining the largest glass and ceramics department in Europe, made up of an international team of creative and experienced educators and practitioners. All academic staff on this course are engaged in professional practice or research, and tutors’ specialisms include glassblowing, print for glass, kilnforming, and digital fabrication methods. Sunderland also hosts the Institute for International Research in Glass (IIRG), which promotes and facilitates glass research, develops new working methods and informs teaching. The IIRG has a lively visiting speaker programme of invited professional artists and curators, and also organises conferences, master classes, exhibitions and specialist training. [-]
