ArtCamp: International Summer School of Art
Proudly announcing that we have begun a collaboration with the University of West Bohemia – Faculty of Design and Art which means you now have a unique opportunity to join their summer workshop ArtCamp for free! Sign up and spend up to three weeks in an international multi-cultural environment while gaining or improving your practical skills in various art courses. Some of the lectures are going to be in DOX (the accommodation in Pilsen and food is not covered).
Since 2005 the ArtCamp international summer school of art has been giving both Czech and international particpants the opportunity to spend up to three weeks in a creative and inspiring environment while discovering and developing their talent and/or preparing for their studies at art schools.
This year, ArtCamp 2019 will take place 8 - 26 July 2019. The courses are suitable not only as preparation for entrance exams at art universities and colleges but they are also designed for the general public (age limit 15 years and up) interested in fine arts and design. Besides working in and outside the studios the participants can take part in acultural programme including workshops, excursions to museums and galleries, trips to the places of local interest, sport activities etc.
In terms of its scope, ArtCamp is the largest summer school of art in the Czech Republic. Participants of different ages, nationalities and personal interests meet and work together on courses led by pedagogues of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art and by both Czech and international visiting artists. The tuition takes place in the modern studios of our school and in the open air, with Czech and English being the main means of communication. The courses are suitable both for the general public from beginners to advanced participants and the present or future art students. Successful participants receive a Certificate of attendance.
Depending on their focus and interest, ArtCamp participants can choose their own combination of courses and length of their summer studies at the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art (one to three weeks). The preparatory courses for talent exams at art colleges and universities (such as Figure Drawing, Illustration, Fashion Design and Design) are the most popular ones. Photographic courses are equally popular, as are classes focusing on graphic design, work with 3D modelling software, interior design and jewellery design. The list of courses also includes traditional art techniques such as drawing, painting and book binding.
The course summary will be published at the end of March 2019.
