ARTISTIC PRINTMAKING

The Summer Courses for Artistic Printmaking are addressed to both beginners in the art of printmaking and experienced artists. The courses are intended for students and graduates of Polish and foreign Academies and for all artists wishing to learn or further develop their skills in the field. The goal of the course programme is to arouse and cultivate the individual approach to the field of artistic printmaking. The courses will present traditional forms of artistic printmaking as well as innovative technologies developed by outstanding artists. To provide participants with a broader choice of techniques during a single course, two of the courses run by Lodz academic teachers will offer the possibility of simultaneous application of relief, intaglio and lithography techniques. The renowned artist Renata Papista from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo will run a course of printmaking as an open medium.

Participants will have access to the excellent equipment of the studios of the Department of Printmaking.

There will be a possibility to create both black and white and colour prints. The maximum size of the print will be 100 cm x 70 cm. After the approval from the teacher, an edition of four prints signed and numbered as artist’s proofs will be printed. Two prints will become the property of the Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts Lodz and its International Printmaking Archives. The plates will remain the property of participants.

Teachers running the courses will be supported by assistants who represent the young generation of talented and recognised artists – teachers of the Academy, and by experienced technical instructors.

The official languages of the courses will be Polish and English, but in some classes it will be also possible to communicate in Italian.

 

TEXTILE ART

The textile art courses are addressed to both people on the brink of their artistic career and professional artists who have been using textile art as means of their creative expression for a long time. They are available to students and graduates of Polish and foreign art academies and to all artists who wish to get to know or broaden their knowledge about textile art.

Teachers running the courses will be supported by assistants who represent the young generation of talented and recognised artists – teachers of the Academy and by experienced technical instructors. All participants will have a possibility to donate one or more of their works to PATA Archives for the purpose of their presentation at potential exhibitions.

 

INTERDISCIPLINARY COURSES

To complement the educational offer, the programme for the year 2017 includes two interdisciplinary courses: a graphic design course and a course in game and film pre - production. Broadening the range of PATA Courses 2017 is an answer to participants needs. Merging and combining classic printmaking and weaving techniques with new media and taking over space to realise projects is in accordance with tendencies in current art.

In the case of the indicated courses a paper or digital copy made by the students will be included in the PATA Archives.
