Learning outcomes of the course unit

The fundamental mission of the seminar Graphic Design and Photography 2 is to motivate students to further develop their own graphic skills and the ability to present photographs through the author's catalog. The purpose here is not only to further deepen the knowledge of graphic software, but also to acquaint them with various possibilities of graphic strategies, which they can then use for their own to present or articulate other artistic messages. The result of teaching should be the ability to apply their own artistic language also in the implementation of utility orders, often associated with, for example, gallery operations.

Mode of study

Teaching in the seminar takes the form of individual consultations, presentation of examples and explanation of work in the software.
