Holidays in Orońsko

Orońsko Academy

Orońsko Academy is one of the highlights in the educational programme conducted  in the area of the Centre of Polish Sculpture.

It is a variation of artistic workshops (in the field of sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography), connected with learning about the institution and the surrounding landscape attractions as well as an introduction to sculptural circles. Orońsko Academy is intended for schools or classes with an art profile, to clubs or other centres for young people keen on art. During our activities the participants have an opportunity to test various artistic techniques, not only sculptural ones. The conscious reference to the tradition of ‘Orońsko Free Academy’* sets a standard we want to model on.
