International Student Drawing Triennal
The competition is open to students of art universities and colleges from Poland and abroad.
Organised for the third time by the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, the International Drawing Review becomes a key presentation of this discipline, confirming its prominent place in art education. The previous editions of the competition showed the great potential of the medium, they revealed the possibilities of breaking its territory and discovering new areas.
The themes of the works and the richness of their stylistics broke through academic traditions, searching for a drawing freed from burdens, following its own path. Such an image of drawing definitely defends its key function, which is the basis for creative experience, especially in the curricula of art universities and colleges.
It guarantees the free and authentic development of young artists in search of their own language and in constructing their own artistic identity, free from dependence and external voices.
