Assessment of the student's work is the result of his general attitude, presence and activity during classes, and above all creativity, diligence and interest in the subject of study. Practical methods for assessing the student's work: during the current class, a permanent correction is made, which is a continuous assessment, the class attendance is checked, the timeliness of tasks carried out and their compliance with the presented assumptions are monitored. Positive evaluation of a student's work is influenced by: achieving all curriculum assumptions, 100% attendance at classes, high independence in the field of workshops and carrying out works at a very high artistic and technical level. Negative assessment of student work is affected by: incomplete attendance, low workshop independence and performance of works at a low technical and artistic level, as well as a total lack of workshop independence combined with a lack of ideas for carrying out own projects.

Very good: student's great involvement in artistic work in the studio and very good artistic effects of the work done.
Good plus: student's strong involvement in artistic work in the studio and more than good artistic results of the work done
Good rating: student's great involvement in artistic work in the studio and good artistic results of the work done
A satisfactory plus: average student activity in artistic work in the studio and the average artistic level of the work done
Satisfactory rating: low student activity in artistic work in the studio and average level of work done
Insufficient grade: lack of any activity resulting from the necessity of artistic work in the studio and insufficient quality effects of the work done

subject description

The aim of education is to deepen knowledge and skills in the field of artistic graphics, to learn and practical application of intaglio and convex printing techniques, enabling free artistic expression formulated by means of graphic means of expression in the form of miniatures and monumental graphics. The main purpose of working with students is to stimulate and stimulate individual creative awareness in graphic images with the help of previously known technical properties of printing. Classes consist of a thorough discussion of the subjects proposed to students, individual conversations related to the practical implementation of the issues raised, as well as attempts to individually overcome formal and technical problems. During the following classes, ongoing consultations and discussions are carried out on the next stages of work, technical problems and ways to eliminate them, and new ideas.

short subject description

The aim of education is to consolidate knowledge and develop skills in the selection and use of intaglio or convex printing techniques in a way that allows expressing thoughts and formulating an artistic problem. Searching for my own artistic path enabling realization of individual artistic intentions.

form of classes

We implement the subject in two groups. The first group consists of introductory classes, i.e. lectures / comparisons / corrections. On the basis of catalogs and graphics, historical and contemporary achievements in Polish graphics are discussed, in particular in the linocut technique. The second group consists of workshop classes and exercises. In this group we distinguish: learning the design process and workshop work.
Contact hours resulting from the study plan: 15
Non-contact hours - student's own work: 15
Total hours:30
