Leonardo da Vinci - Mobility

As part of  Leonardo da Vinci – Mobility project the school hosted guests from:
- The Czech school - Soukroma Stredni Umelecka Skola AVE ART from Ostrawa.

During workshops that lasted from 8 – 28 October 2006 the Czech students were familiarized with:
- the process of creating a tapestry; each participant made a small tapestry, a rug or a small tablecloth on a loom;
- different gilding and painting techniques; decorating techniques, applying gold, water colour technique and oil technique on a board; students made frames according to their own projects, oil paintings with gildings with angel motives, water colours on cartoon or parchment;
AVE ART students went on trips to Sandomierz and Kraków.

- The Spanish school ESCUELA TALLER „La Merced” from Cordoba.

During workshops from 18 October to 7 November 2007 the Spanish took part in  carving, gilding and painting classes. They prepared precise decorative elements in lime wood which later were gilded. They also made decorated mirror frames.

Both teachers and students had a chance to exchange valuable experience, especially on gilding techniques.
They made a few trips, e.g. to The Cave ‘Raj’, Sandomierz or camp-museum Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oświęcim.
