Figurama 2019: International Competition of Figure Drawing for Art Students
This year’s competition starts with an exhibition organized by the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice at the Rondo Sztuki Gallery and Vertical Gallery, presenting the works of the drawing teachers.
The confrontation of art schools started 18 years ago and focuses on the medium of drawing as a superior discipline with a special status in the curriculum. The international character of the event allows the participants to examine and compare the quality of education within the structures of academic art schools in different cultural contexts. At the same time, it underlines the role of drawing as a condition of all creative experience.
