TYPA's First Summer School
For TYPA’s first summer school, we have prepared two five day courses for those interested in printing and photography. During the summer school you can create an artistic printed book and a pinhole camera from an old book. Those interested can choose one course or participate on both. The summer school is conducted in English.
The price for one course is €140, €120 for students. // When participating in both courses, the price is €220, for students €200. *Prices do not include meals and accommodation in Tartu.
Pinhole photography goes back to the roots of photography. It’s a simple photography technique, but teaches the basic principles of light and shadow. Long exposure times force a person to stop and think about seeing the world from a different perspective. In this course, art is made from recycled materials, i.e. a pinhole camera is made from an old book.
