Course of Multidisciplinary Arts

Exploring a new direction for the contemporary arts, and evolving modern expressions through a variety of materials and media

Without being confined by conventional materials, techniques, and forms of expression, students create contemporary artworks employing diverse media.

Overview of the Course

In the Course of Multidisciplinary Arts, to rediscover the methods of artwork production, students examine the relations of the fundamental elements making up artworks in such fields as painting, sculpture, textiles, performance, installation, media arts, and illustration. By a multifaceted fusion of approaches students explore new and free artistic expression.
In the research and production of artworks, students select those techniques and materials most suitable for expressing the “theme of the work” and the “foundation of expression = concept.” The work is not limited by the expertise of an individual member of our teaching staff; diverse expressions are considered an opportunity to nurture a sense of multiple values in Multidisciplinary arts expression, and guidance and instruction are offered by the faculty from diverse viewpoints, not just by an individual staff member.
The aim of this Course is to promote artistic expression that creates “new expression fields,” and introduces a new perspective in society. The Course aspires to firstly encourage an expanding awareness of issues concerning social values, judgment, and activities free of preconceptions, and secondly through the promotion of the arts, contribute to the creation of new values that will be shared throughout the local communities and the world.
