Archival article

The Kaverljag Summer Workshops have been organised every year since 1998 at the studio of painter Aleš Sedmak with Zdravko Papič (1953–2013) from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design as the workshop head.

At the beginning it was organised for the students of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design and the fine arts students of the Faculty of Education of the University of Ljubljana, in recent years it has become international, involving students from European academies. It focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to ecological topics.

Variety of workshops

In 2004 a workshop in scientific illustration took place, with tutors also coming from graphic design and natural science faculties and institutes. In the same year professors and students of the fine arts academies in Zagreb, Katowice, Krakov, Budapest, and Ljubljana worked together at Kaverljag within the framework of the Central European Exchange Programme for University Studies (CEEPUS). A sculpture workshop was also held under the tutorship of Mirko Bratuša, with the aim of establishing monuments in Lucija and Izola to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the London Memorandum.

In recent years a workshop on letters stone-carving was held under the mentorship of Marko Drpić (in 2009) as well as the workshop The Insects for the Blind and Visually Impaired (in 2011). The latter involved 11 international mentors and gathered the students from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, the Fine Art Academy from Lecce (Italy), the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts from Kraków (Poland), and from the Moholy–Nagy University in Budapest (Hungary). In March 2017 the exhibition Touching the Nature was held at the Balassi Institute Ljubljana.
