Practical exercise is focused on the experimental work within a diverse range of two-dimensional techniques and intermedial events. It offers, in addition to presentations of selected technological processes, also the manifestation of expressive and generally creative possibilities of selected artistic media and is heading towards their potential application in creative activities in art education at the primary school.
The exercise is primarily focused on the development of student's creativity and visual sensitivity through their own artwork, using a variety of techniques and alternative art activities.
