Graphic Design department at Klaipeda faculty of Vilnius Academy of Arts is hosting Cirrus express course/workshop on drawing/illustration and self-publish magazine.

The ISO container has become a symbol of the global trade. It has become a familiar sight at the edges of the inhabited areas in all countries of the world. During this hands-on workshop we will investigate where are containers in and around Klaipeda and what stories do they tell us. How can we convey these stories with drawing/illustrating.

Each participant will design a poster / double page for a self-published magazine.

The workshop consists of joint lectures and visits as well as of group work with final presentations. All participants will be briefly introduced to the history of Klaipeda and could also put hands on self-drawing, iliustration, self-published magazine making process.

The short and intensive format of these courses allows students to immerse themselves in the creative life of Klaipeda and collaborate with Klaipeda faculty students while building a network of contacts.

4 students will be selected from Cirrus network partner schools and are entitled to CIRRUS scholarship (330 EUR travel/660 Iceland) + weekly allowance 70 EUR.
