Master class (university)
Master classes in the artistic university sector are special courses given by renowned artist professors. They are visited by selected art students ( master students ) after completing their regular studies (with an academy certificate, diploma or bachelor's / master's degree) in order to develop their skills and abilities under exclusive supervision. A graduate studies may at German art colleges or music schools those students begin to have completed the regular studies with above-average performance. A commission decides on admission. Before the master's degree or master's certificate is awarded, one or two more years of study must usually be spent at the art college.
The first master classes were set up in the 1820s as a creation by Wilhelm von Schadow (1788–1862) at the Düsseldorf Art Academy . In his 1828 printed thoughts on a consistent education of the painter Schadow put the relevant principles of his conception of art and teaching publicly represent. 1831 wrote Schadow the Regulations for the Royal Art Academy to Dusseldorf whose methodical step plan provided for a pre-school in a basic or elementary class followed by a multi-part preparatory class. Then, in a master class, a student worked with an academy professor as a master, before the student was released into his own independent studio at the academy as the last level of the curriculum , where his work continued to be exposed to everyday peer criticism.
In the field of architecture, the University of Applied Arts Vienna relies on a master class principle, although this training principle was officially abolished in Austria by the university reform in 2002. Three architects currently manage the three different studios and teach the students how to deal with new architecture, especially in the presentation area. Greg Lynn , Kazuyo Sejima (succeeded Zaha Hadid in the 2015 winter semester ) and Hani Rashid manage the studios. Klaus Bollinger is head of the Institute for Architecture.
