Class Post-production of Fashion Image

  • Presentation


    The Post-production Curricular Unit has a practical nature and aims to awaken, in students, aesthetic sensitivity for creating fashion images. Images must be able to communicate concepts, stories, trends of brands, fashion designers. It is a curricular unit that awakens the ability to work as a team, research and, consequently, the development of students' fashion culture.

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Various important aspects of pos-production will be focussed on through visual and exemplary presentations. The work proposed for assessment will be carried out in the classroom and monitored by the teacher, but should include some time for autonomous work.

    The type of work is essentially practical, involving research, planning, organisation and execution.

    Student-centred teaching and learning by doing are encouraged, with the teacher facilitating learning.
