WORKSHOP DAYS: February 6-9, 2018


On Wednesday you and your travel partners will be welcomed at the academy at 2 pm. Our peer-coaches can make your arrival personal and pick you up at the train station. We will start with a late lunch and introduction to our Dutch cultures. We will give a presentation about our academy and take a tour through our building. We conclude the evening with a dinner followed by a city tour.

On Thursday your travel partners will have to go their own way, now our focus is only on you! In the morning we'll start with coffee and you'll receive the briefing for your assignment. Tutors and peer-coaches will be there for you with all the materials ready. You do not have to bring your current portfolio with you just yet. You will work on a new portfolio piece while exploring different techniques in the Stations with the help of our peer-coaches! We will wrap up the day with a short review at 17h. Lunch and dinner are included.

On Friday you will continue to work on your assignment. It will be a busy day for you to get the project just right for the presentation in the afternoon. During the presentation, your travel partners are welcome to see the results and learn from the feedback from our tutors. Lunch is included, dinner is optional. If there is time left, we go on an excursion to Art Rotterdam!

On Saturday you are invited to join the Open Day with alumni workshops, presentations of first years students and tutors. Join the Portfolio Review, bring your sketchbook, try-outs and laptop to the academy! Lunch is included and goodbye drinks as well. The day starts at 10 am and finished at 15 pm.
