A short workshop can be added to the tours by prior arrangement.

Educational materials for mentors and teachers are also prepared to accompany exhibitions. These are available on the MGLC website at http://www.mglc-lj.si/za_solske_skupine/za_solske_skupine.

STUDIO PROGRAMME

Printmaking Demonstration

The Print Studio is presented with a demonstration of a chosen printmaking technique: screenprinting, lithography (part of the process) or part of the intaglio printing process. The demonstrations effectively complement art lessons of the third three-year age range of primary school. As they provide a clear practical illustration of the printmaking process, they are also recommended for younger schoolchildren.

(45 min) € 2.50

 

Popular combination:

Guided tour of the exhibition and demonstration of printmaking techniques.

(90 min) € 3.50

 

Printmaking Workshops

The workshops offer an insight into the process of fine art printmaking: preparing the motif, the matrix and making the print itself. By prior arrangement we carry out:

- Screenprinting (180 min, € 6.50)

- Collagraphy (180 min, € 6.50)

- Drypoint (180 min, € 6.50)

- Etching (180–240 min, € 10.50)

- Lithography (300 min, € 10.50)

We organise workshops for small groups, suitable for the third three-year age range of primary school and older.

 

The Tivoli Tee

A special screenprinting workshop with prints made on a T-shirt brought along by participants. Besides learning about printmaking techniques, the emphasis of the workshop is on the development of a motif that expresses the identity values of young people and follows productive creativity. We can carry out a 3-hour or a shortened 2-hour workshop (in this case, participants bring a drafted motif with them).

(180 min) € 6.50

 

Small Print and Greeting Card Workshop

From idea to product can be a long way! But shorter in this workshop, at which participants create a set of original birthday or festive cards – small prints in the screenprinting technique, which can also be linked to book-plates. The workshop is based on group collaboration and is suitable for all ages.

(180 min) € 5

The studio programme is run in the MGLC Print Studio under the supervision of printmaker, Admir Ganić.

EXPERIMENTAL PRINTMAKING PROGRAMME

We organise workshops on monotype, frottage, collage printing, stencil printing, screenprinting, relief and intaglio printing ... in which objects from the environment and everyday life are used as matrices to develop inventive print processes. Participants create pictorially interesting compositions that tie in with temporary exhibitions or the MGLC Collection. Workshops are carried out independently or as additions to the temporary exhibitions. We prepare and implement them in cooperation with the gallery pedagogues – students and graduates of the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts and Design and Art Education at the Faculty of Education in Ljubljana. Occasionally, we also invite resident and visiting artists to collaborate.

(120 min) € 3.50

 

CREATIVE WORKSHOPS

 

The Artist’s Book

How can books be tied to visual expression? This is a new artistic approach from the mid-20th century that combines various techniques, technologies and approaches. As MGLC holds an extensive collection of artists’ books, the field and some examples from the collection are briefly introduced to begin with. After that, workshop participants make their own visual, several-page long, numbered and signed art publication.

(120 min) € 3.50

 

Story: ... (fill in), Set Design Art Workshop

Participants create their own story by using a scenographic model (concept by Samo Lapajne). The workshop is tied to the focus points of the Švicarija programme and the exhibitions at MGLC. It represents a great way to learn about perspective and composition, and allows for cross-curricular connections to be made in subject areas encompassing science, nature, the environment, society, sociology, history, literature, etc. It can be adapted to suit all ages.

(120 min) € 3.50

 

In the Stojan Batič Memorial Studio

The Stojan Batič Memorial Studio is equipped with the artist’s sculptures and the work tools from his legacy. Batič, who lived and worked in Švicarija between 1954 and 1960, flirted with different themes as well as various sculpture techniques. He drew the ideas for his distinctive figurative works from ancient and Slavic mythology. A studio presentation is available for groups, along with a short sculpture workshop.

(45–90 minutes) € 2

 

The Contemporary Graphic Arts

A visual and discursive presentation at the cross-section of the Biennial of Graphic Arts and other exhibitions addresses the subject matters and mediums of the contemporary graphic arts. Suitable for participants of 14 years of age and over.
(45 min) € 1

 

The Mobile Printmaking Studio

Upon invitation, we can visit you and carry out a visiting print workshop with a brief presentation of fine art printmaking and a print demonstration. Execution and price by prior arrangement.

A public presentation of the mobile print studio for mentors and event organisers will take place on 4 April at the Cultural Bazaar at Cankarjev dom in Ljubljana.

METABOLIC MUSEUM-UNIVERSITY

25th July 2019 – 2nd August 2019

Various Venues

The Metabolic Museum-University offers an experimental educational program to all visitors of the 33rd Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts, as well as visitors of participating museums in Ljubljana.

Over seven days, selected exhibitions are transformed into an unusual and ironic clash between a museum, a university and a body. Unique furniture based on a home-camping style provides visitors with the means to sit down, read, write, and take part in lectures, conversations, experiments, and exercises. Special metabolic chairs have their own table, light and mini-beamer enabling participants to spam the hang by projecting their own visuals into the gaps between artworks.

Each of the seven days corresponds to an Organ of the Week and is directed by a Faculty Member of the Metabolic Museum-University. In addition, innovative Stimuli prepared by guest artists and scientists interrupt the daily sessions with creative and intellectual impulses.

The Metabolic Museum takes place from Friday 26th July 2019 until Friday 2nd August 2019 between 14.00–18.00, except for Sunday 29th July when it runs all day from 11.00–13.00 and 14.00–18.00. On Monday 30th July 2019 there is no session.

The Metabolic Museum-University is open and free to all visitors with entry tickets to the Biennial venues and museums. It encourages participants to take part in all sessions for the full week if possible, but sporadic visits are also welcome. Sessions will be held in English.
