West Bohemia University Art Camp 2015 / International summer school of art
Young artists representing the next generation gather from around the world
This international summer school of art is held annually by the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art at the University of West Bohemia. Since 2005 ArtCamp has drawn participants from inside and outside the Czech Republic for study and creation in three weeks of wide-ranging art courses. Since 2013 Youkobo Art Space and Japanese fine arts universities have worked together to arrange the participation of sixteen artists in ArtCamp until today. The experience of producing art while taking courses in English, interacting with classmates from many different countries and benefiting from the stimulation of a global environment is a valuable opportunity for these ambitious young artists pursuing professional careers in the arts. This year saw Japanese participation extend beyond students to interns and an instructor in classical Japanese painting. The program is to repeat in 2016 and is sure to grow in breadth and substance with the European Capital of Culture.
