The Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice has been an independent state institution of higher education since 2001.
The school was founded as a branch of a Wrocław institution in 1947, and later functioned as part of Poland’s oldest art university in Kraków.
Most importantly, during the school’s growth we have successfully preserved its intimate atmosphere, developed a student-focused style of education, and defined art and design as the major areas of research.
The Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice has two faculties: the Faculty of Design comprising the Department of Graphic Design and Department of Design, and the Faculty of Art comprising the Department of Painting and Department of Graphic Art.The qualities we value and emphasise in our teaching:
Graphic Design graduates: The variety of possibilities includes editorial and typographic projects (including font design), designing visual identification, exhibitions, data visualisation, digital publications, UX and UI interfaces and the new media (animation, film, installation, VR). Some of our graduates specialise in multimedia projects (animation, video clips, video spots, video credits, post-production, film editing) and in creating artistic illustrations.
