Classes consist of theoretical and hands-on practical sessions in studio where you will use and discuss some of your existing studio projects.

Additional studio- and practical time can be scheduled for production work. Since your lectures are hands-on practical based where theoretical concepts are demonstrated and practiced, it is compulsory to attend all lectures.
