Summary/Abstract: Since 2005, in Cieszyn, at the Department of Graphic Design at the Universityof Silesia, there have been two active Research and Art Circles. The Lithographers Research Circle Kurant and the Woodcutters Research Circle Deha have organized multiple exhibitions and graphic design workshops directed at high school students and students from other faculties. The members of the research circles usually arrive at their choice of topics on their own. Similarly, the choice of the template’s format and technique are dependent on and selected for the particular project. The students can improve their skills and learn how to incorporate the element of chance in their projects; they can experiment with color and incorporate the capabilities of graphic design software in their projects. They are aware of the existence and use of drawing techniques in print. They search for new drawing media. Their goal is to shape the artistic and academic life of students, developing not only their artistic butalso their interpersonal and organizational skills, as well as promoting themselves and the University. The members of Kurant and Deha are passionate, academically inclined people who know their goals and are open to new technologies. They treat their extracurricular activities like a journey, in which each stage constitutes a challenge on the road to self-fulfillment and search for beauty.
