Week 1 (8. - 12. 7. 2024)

Art and Ritual

dates / 8 - 12 July, 2024
teacher / Bart Van Dijckguest, BE
language/ en
price / 220 EUR

topic / ÎNTERZONE (ART + THERAPY + RITUAL)

The course offers you a transformative experience and takes you on a journey to your inner self, where you are invited to step out of your comfort zone, face your demons and tap into your inner strength.

The Înterzone is a space-in-between, in the periphery, and refers to the transitional phase of rites of passage. In the Înterzone we connect with ourselves, the collective and our environment.

We will be mostly working outside, without distractions, in the green zone surrounding the faculty, where we create a ceremonial circle that enables us to relate to our ancestors, the four directions and their symbolism. Through embodied learning we activate our intuition and pay attention to what is really important in our lives. We learn from ourselves, nature, and each other through challenges, conversations, and a silent walk in the woods. During meditative jam sessions we build trancy soundscapes. Using natural materials, we create sculptures and charge them with meaning so they can help us to gain insights. You can recognize elements from shamanism, therapy and folklore. 

The week culminates into a threshold ritual, where we leave the old behind and welcome the new.

The course is open to everybody, no experience is needed. 

Some preparatory work will be required.

Înterzone is guided by Belgian interdisciplinary artist Bart Van Dijck. He teaches at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp) and is currently working on a PhD research in which he explores the connection between artistic and ritualistic practices. He developed Înterzone in response to a lack of contemporary, meaningful rites of passage in our society.

Cyanotype vs. Digital Photography

dates / 8 - 12 July, 2024
teacher / Martin Dokoupil
language/ cs, en
price / 260 EUR

The course will connect two not only historically very different approaches to making a photographic image. The current digital approach will enable us to take a picture, edit it and prepare a digital negative. Then there is the photochemical approach, or cyanotype – one of the first techniques of printing photographs. We will use this contact printing technique to print the resulting image on paper (or other suitable materials like fabric or wood)  in a variety of sizes.

When working on the digital negatives you will deepen your skills  in taking and editing digital photographs. The possibilities of using smartphones as quality cameras can be included in the course as well.

In the process of printing you will learn how to prepare and apply a photosensitive emusion and how to choose the right paper or other suitable material for printing. We will also experiment with photograms and combine the techniques in a creative way. If the weather permits, we will use direct sunlight to print the photographs. In the opposite case we will use an UV lamp. This technique does not require a dark room and chemicals – the photographs are developed and stabilised with pure water. We can also try to tone some of the photos in various ways.

It is advisable to bring your own digital camera and laptop. All the other supplies necessary for printing will be available. The participants will print and take home several photographs in different formats.

Painting / Landscape Painting

dates / 8 - 12 July, 2024
teacher / Zdeněk Daněkguest, CZ
language/ cs, en
price / 220 EUR

topic / Realistic Landscape Painting

This class is intended for students with previous painting experience who want to improve and expand their painting skills. In the event of bad weather, the lessons will take place in the painting studio at the Sutnar Faculty, and the course content will be adjusted accordingly.

A famous painter once said: He who loves landscape painting doesn't love nature as much as the process of painting itself.

In the landscape painting course, we will be painting the surroundings of the Sutnar Faculty and the Pilsen countryside. We will concentrate on the principles of picture composition and the basic principles of painting. You will learn how to simplify the landscape, how to begin painting from large areas and how to gradually refine the landscape details. You will learn how to use colour to build space and perspective, work with textures and details and use shortcuts. We will place emphasis on understanding the logic of painting, not just the creation of paintings.

Join us and share the joy of creation and exploring the world of landscape painting!

Typography / Alternative Expressions

dates / 8 - 12 July, 2024
teacher / Avigail Reinerguest, IL
language/ en
price / 220 EUR

topic / Foreign Typography as means of exploring visual cultures

There seems to be nothing more contrary than Hebrew and Latin letters. They do not sound alike nor are they written in the same way. They ‘belong’ to two different geographical spheres and contrasting cultures. Yet in the past these forms of writing merged different cultures via visual communication based on a cluster of signs – the proto-canaanite alphabet. Most of the alphabets all around the world have evolved from this form of writing, developed two thousand years ago.

The workshop aims to create an intercultural meeting through the shape of the written letter by producing new typographic structures that will include signs which will bridge the gaps between the two kinds of writing.

We will examine the existing tensions between the two ways of writing, for example: while Hebrew typography is written from right to left using dominant horizontal lines, Latin typography is written from left to right and has dominant diagonal lines, etc.

We will experiment how the foreign typographic structures “feel” and not only how they are read.

We will examine typographic forms that are similar to the Hebrew writing but different in essence, such as the Arabic alphabet, which has different shape and character although it was also developed in the Middle East.

We will experiment with creating a new form of typography relevant for today which will give visual space for each of the visual cultures we have examined. The final result of this workshop will be the creation of a new unique Hebrew-Latin form of typography.

topic / Motion as a Means of the Artist’s Expression

This course is an introduction to the history, theory and practice of hand-drawn animation as a unique means of artistic visual expression. In the workshop we will discuss theoretical principles of animated motion, analyse existing motion images and, of course, create new animations. By following but also breaking the theoretical principles of animation during short exercises, we will try to find the individual artistic style of each participant.

In the second half of the course we will work on individual short projects, such as short animated loops, ultra-short films, motion posters etc. The participants can bring their own thought-through themes or very short storyboards and use the time in the workshop to work on them. If the participants wish so, the last day of the workshop can be dedicated to compositing in After Effects or adding sound to the projects in Adobe Premiere.   

We also will give the participants an opportunity to present their portfolios so that they can get to know each other better (please bring a flash drive with examples of your work).

The course is designed for participants with a basic knowledge of any drawing/animation software (Adobe Photoshop, Procreate, TVPaint, ToonBoom, Krita etc.). We can provide computers with Photoshop and graphic tablets. However, we recommend that you bring your own equipment so that you can work with programmes and systems that you are accustomed to. If you wish to use another animation software than Photoshop, please bring your own computer.

Please note that the course is FULL at this moment

dates / 15 - 19 July, 2024
teacher / Marie Kohoutová
language/ cs, en
price / 220 EUR

This class is designed for artists who already have experience with drawing comics and would like to try and create a complete comic story in the range of 3 to 7 pages.

After concluding the week-long course, each participant will leave with a printed story in the form of a workbook. In addition to the creation of the comic itself and everything that goes along with it (such as panelling, perspective changes, lettering, etc.), participants will also design their own comic book covers.

During the week, students will work independently on their theme using a technique that suits them. This can be pen and ink, pencil drawing, watercolour, crayon or even digital drawing if they choose to work on their own tablet.

In order to complete everything on time, participants will be asked to provide the text (max. 1 A4 in length) or a script in advance, which they subsequently plan to turn into a comic book. You can use your own or other people's short stories or even song lyrics or poems. We will take care of the preparations prior to printing the comic as well as the printing itself on site.

Drawing

dates / 15 - 19 July, 2024
teacher / Martin Schwarzhost, SK
language/ sj, en
price / 220 EUR

topic / Sketching as the Quickest Way to Capture Real Life and a Tool for Generating Ideas

In this course you will not only learn how to sketch, but you will also expand your way of thinking. The greatest works of art started out as simple sketches. In the most famous galleries around the world, we can admire sketches by world-famous artists such as Rembrandt and Caravaggio. Today, this part of the creative process is basically a category of its own (so-called "urban sketching" or sketchbooks by artists such as Kim Jung Gi or Karl Kopinski). It is also a very important skillset for any part of the visual industry. I believe that also thanks to the influence of artificial intelligence and technological advances, sketching brings us back to human nature and closer to ourselves.

During this course we will explore different techniques and methods of sketching (yes, sketching doesn't have to be solely an intuitive affair). We will explore selected techniques and attempt to sketch in a way that will help you develop a better visual memory, which will later allow you to sketch from memory and bring forth different ideas.

The course also includes the necessary theoretical and historical background to help participants gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of the visual arts and learn to record the world around them with greater confidence.

Game Production

dates / 15 - 19 July, 2024
teacher / Klára Klánová

Emphasis will be placed on the essence of the visual message, its form and the heterogenous means of expression for the topics which the participants will choose at the beginning of the course or beforehand. The final posters will be printed in B1 size (100x70 cm) and displayed during a presentation at the end of the workshop. 

Photography and Algorithms

dates / 15 - 19 July, 2024
teacher / Barbora Mrázková
language/ cs, en
price / 220 EUR

topic / A Look Beneath the Surface of Photography

During this course we will focus on the medium of photography and its various forms in the context of contemporary art. In particular we will focus on the "algorithmic" nature of contemporary photography, which is mostly created by automated functions and algorithms embedded in our mobile phones and other automated devices used to capture images. We will try to establish our own standpoint with respect to these automatically generated images and deal with our personal subjectivity. The workshop will include lectures and discussions on related topics and daily consultations on the ongoing assignments.

Participants will learn about the term "post-digital photography", deepen their critical thinking about the medium of photography that we use on a daily basis, they will also learn how to interpret selected works of art and to reflect this experience in their own work.

The final output will be a multi-media presentation of the individual project completed during the course.

Bring your own digital camera that you are used to working with. A course requirement are at least basic editing skills in editing programs (e.g. Photoshop). A computer lab will be available, or you can work on your personal laptop.

Sculpture

dates / 15 - 19 July, 2024
teacher / BcA. Daniel Doležal

topic / From Idea to Sculpture – designing an original object and bringing it to life using the traditional plaster casting method.

This course will guide participants through the process of creating a sculpture – from the initial idea to plaster cast.

Together we will look under the surface of a traditional technique that has been used by sculptors for centuries. We will analyse the selected topic and compile a design, which we will transform into an actual work of art following a group discussion. We will use the technology of the so-called single use "lost" plaster mould and subsequent plaster casting with modifications to preserve the work of art.

The course is also suitable for students with no previous experience - we will explore and master the technology together.

At the end of the course, each participant will create their own sculptural work to keep as inspiration for their future artwork.

Japanese Printmaking Techniques

dates / 22 - 26 July, 2024
teacher / Nagisa Yagiguest, JP
jazyk / jp s tlumočením do en
price / 260 EUR

topic / Peel and Strip Prints – New Print Art from Japan

This course introduces a modern printing technique from Japan that uses familiar materials to create beautiful printed art.

Conventional print art requires specialized experience and knowledge, and is usually made by applying pressure to a plate with the help of tools and printing equipment. However, this course uses normal Kraft packaging tape, acrylic paints and acrylic emulsions. Images are created directly on cardboard plates wrapped in tape, and subsequently transferred to paper.

As some acrylic emulsions have a strong adhesive strength, very fine details can be portrayed on the tape. If you keep painting while the emulsion dries, the nuances of your brushstrokes and the overlapping colours will be captured as layers, giving you an opportunity to create a unique piece of print art.

It is an experience that can be easily tried without special knowledge or experience, and will allow you to discover new possibilities in print art.

Jewellery Design / Artist´s Jewel

dates / 22 - 26 July, 2024
teacher / Daniel Jirkovskýguest, CZ
language/ cs, en
price / 260 EUR

topic / IDENTITY

This course is designed for advanced jewellery makers who are familiar with the basic jewellery making techniques and have an elementary insight into the current state of the discipline. 

Identity is understood as the ability of an individual to realize their own distinctiveness, which differentiates them from others, but which also allows them to be aware of their origin and their place in the society. All that can be communicated through a jewel.

How can you use a jewel to find and complete your identity? How can you communicate your identity to the world around you? Can you use your identity for artistic creativity, and if so, how? Can you train your courage to show your identity?

During the five-day course, we will intensively focus on the identity of each participant. Through creative exercises we will deepen our awareness of identity, origin and culture. The learnings from the exercises will be used to create a jewel as a means of communication. An integral part of the workshop is building your self-confidence to wear the jewel, encouraging new discussions in the society. The workshop will also include lectures about current jewellery makers who reflect their identity in their work.

Lithography

dates / 22 - 26 July, 2024
teacher / Bedřich Kocman
language/ cs, en
price / 220 EUR

This course will take participants through the fundamentals of the traditional graphic technique of lithography. In the course of the week students will learn about its origins, evolution and position in relation to other printing technologies. They will learn about the tools, machines and materials used in lithography. They will gain hands-on experience with the processes of preparing the lithographic stone by grinding and graining. Depending on their individual abilities and experience, they can then produce their own artistic motifs on the stone using a technique of their choosing.

Furthermore, the students will learn about the prepress preparation of the motif on stone and the possibilities of reproduction during printing with and without a machine. The aim of the practical execution is, in addition to gaining a basic understanding of the technology of stone printing, to test the expressive possibilities of this traditional graphic discipline in the field of free graphics.

The stone printing department at FDU is unique in terms of its equipment in the entire Central European region.

Painting Styles

dates / 22 - 26 July, 2024
teacher / Andrea Uhliarová
