The Department of Graphic Art offers studies in interrelated programs – Graphic Art and Book Design.
Within the broader context of contemporary art, Graphic Art allows mixing all classical graphic techniques (linocut, woodcut, lithography, screen printing, etching, copper engraving, etc.) with a wide variety of materials, techniques, and the latest printing technologies to create art. During composition lectures students work with different themes and techniques and on finding their own artistic language.
Book Design studies focus on the specifics of printing industry, working hand in hand with printing-houses, publishers, writers, paper distributors, business partners, mixing creative imagination and practical implementation. Students have lectures like illustration, artist book, layout design etc.
Along with the specialty subjects students learn also classical drawing and painting.
