Lesson topics to choose from:
History of Stained Glass
When and how was glass invented? What was it used for in ancient times? Where are the oldest known stained glass windows? These and many other questions are answered during our lesson. This wonderful craft is somewhat forgotten nowadays, so it is worth getting to know its rich history, especially as it can surprisingly well complement contemporary design.
Art of Young Poland
This extraordinary era left an undeniable mark on Polish culture. It was then that such famous artists as Wyspiański, Mehoffer, Chełmoński or Malczewski worked. Some of the most significant cultural texts were created. This period also left material traces in the urban fabric of Krakow – we will suggest where to go in search of Young Poland artefacts.
Young Poland’s masters: Wyspiański and Mehoffer
Two artists who had as many differences as they had in common. Friends, peers, main figures of Young Poland and the Krakow artistic community. Their fascinating biographies say a lot about the world of those years, and their works remain widely known to this day, co-creating the canon of Polish culture and inspiring successive generations of artists.
