Bachelor’s degree (Bc.) study program Graphics
The studio courses are targeting usage of student’s creative potential with the emphasis on creating own artistic expression in the context of contemporary art. The studio work is an open space based on active communication with the student while accepting his individuality. The goal is acquisition of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field of graphics, supporting creative thinking and preparation of a student who would be able to use means of current artistic graphics tendencies and technologies of visual communication when processing topics. Continual education in the studio is based on the use of basic means of expression and building components of an art work within alternative graphic work. Another important part is learning the basic terminology, flexibility development and the ability to react to the changing environment of visual culture. The intermedia overlaps in the works enable to find suitable medium/media for expressing thoughts. The stress is put on preparation of propositions and their suitable technical and technological execution. While acquiring skills the student uses classical techniques (drawing, relief printing, intaglio, surface printing), alternative techniques (offset printing, xerox printing, roll printing, work with a matrix, etc.), digital technologies, as well as author’s techniques created by experiments with paper and various materials. The content of the studio courses is also focusing on the use of visual communication means (letters, graphic symbols, drawing, print, illustration, overlaps into typography, etc.) in free production.
