Wayne Miyamoto, professor and chair of the Art Department at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, has been invited as a Visiting Artist at ArtCamp 2008, the International Summer School of Art in Pilsen, Czech Republic.
ArtCamp 2008 will take place from July 7th - 25th, 2008 on the campus of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen.
Every year, ArtCamp offers a wide range of art courses, including traditional (drawing, painting, illustration, bookbinding) and modern ones (digital drawing and painting, video creation, intermedia art), which are one or two weeks long, usually in two versions suitable for beginners and advanced students. Depending on their focus and interest, ArtCamp participants choose their own combination of courses and length of their summer studies at the Institute of Art and Design. Led by local and visiting professors, Czech students work together with their international colleagues on common assignments. Instruction is held in small groups, usually in Czech, English or German language.
Miyamoto will present a slide-lecture of prints and works on paper and teach workshops in lithography using polyester plates. Some of the recent work that he will be presenting uses digital imagery in etchings and lithographs.
