Diploma exam takes place in April each year at the end of the final grade. It consists of two parts:
- practical – where students present and defend their diploma work prepared in one of the specializations and the presentation of works: drawing (character study) and painting (still life and landscape).
- theoretical – oral history of art exam.
After passing the diploma exam a student graduates from school receiving the title of visual artist. If they wish they may take A-level exams in May.
It is a tradition to display diploma works at BWA Gallery in Kielce or The International Cultural Centre in Kielce.
