ArtCamp 2024 International Summer School of Art started in Pilsen

Further Education International Public

The Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art of the University of WBU is hosting the 18th edition of the international summer school of art ArtCamp. This prestigious event, which will take place from 8 to 26 July, will offer 40 diverse art courses for more than 400 participants.

"An important feature of the ArtCamp International Summer School of Art is that it does not focus on a narrow profile of students. On the contrary, in addition to a wide range of topics and areas, it targets a heterogeneous and diverse group of people interested in art and design. In the relaxed environment of the summer school, as well as in the rich accompanying programme, people of different ages, cultural and social backgrounds have the opportunity to meet and contribute to the inspiring atmosphere of the whole event," says Vojtěch Aubrecht, Dean of the Faculty of Design and Art.

Thanks to its diverse range of courses, ArtCamp attracts a wide variety of participants every year. The programme appeals to those interested in creative summer activities who want to use their free time in a meaningful way and develop their artistic skills, as well as students and graduates of art schools looking for an opportunity for further professional growth. Each year, ArtCamp participants also include future applicants to art studies, for whom the courses are ideal preparation for talent tests. "One of this year's innovations, an accompanying event called The First Step to Sutnarka, is aimed precisely at prospective students. The students will have the opportunity to get to know the faculty better, meet the teachers of selected studios and get information on the admission procedure," reveals Lenka Kodýtková, the operational director of the summer school.

The courses are taught by Sutnarka teachers as well as guest artists from abroad, including lecturers from Japan, Israel, Belgium and Slovakia. This international dimension adds to the attractiveness of ArtCamp and allows participants to gain diverse perspectives on art and design. In addition to the main program, ArtCamp offers a rich accompanying program that is open to the public. It includes openings, guided tours of exhibitions, presentations by ArtCamp Talks lecturers and documentary film screenings. Special attention should be paid to the Friday exhibitions of the participants' works, which will be held on 12, 19 and 26 July from 14:00 to 15:30 in the building of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art. ArtCamp is not only an educational event, but also a significant cultural contribution to the city of Pilsen.
