Lithography and Graphics Promotion Studio

Diploma awarding Studio

We teach according to the rules governing classical lithography, algraphy, mokulito, linocut. The objective of teaching is to consolidate knowledge and develop skills in selecting and using

graphic media to express thoughts and formulate artistic problems; the main emphasis is put on the issues of correlation of idea and form and deepening knowledge and skills of using techniques and technologies of flatbed printing in artistic creation. Students, on the basis of their own experiences, work out innovative issues of theory and practice of creation.


According to popular opinion, the studio is the best organised and equipped studio in Poland. The study programme (classes are conducted in Polish and English) includes classic lithography on stone, black & white and in colour, algraphy on grained aluminium plate, black-and-white and colour photoalgraphy, i.e. the use of photomechanical techniques to create a printing matrix using pre-sensitised offset plates, and mokulito - lithography on wood. The studio, like others belonging to the

Department of Artistic Printmaking, offers students linocut as a complementary technique. Students use equipment and materials necessary for the performance of course tasks and diploma works.
