Starting from 1st February 2019 Petras Saulėnas from Kaunas will be the second guest professor from Lithuania, who will start to work in Liepaja University (LiepU). The guest professor will give lectures in Art to 1st and 3nd year students of the Bachelor study programme “New Media Art” and “Design” in the frame of the project “Perfection of the Academic Staff of Liepaja University in the Areas of Strategic Specialization – Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Information Technologies, Art, Social Sciences, Commerce and Law” (No 126.96.36.199/18/A/021).
Yesterday the guest professor arrived on a work preparation visit and met lecturers and colleagues from LiepU Faculty of Humanities and Art – the lecturer and director of the Bachelor study programme “Design” Inta Klasone and lecturer of the Bachelor study programme “New Media Art”, project manager of LiepU Art Research Laboratory (MPLab) Maija Demitere, as well as LiepU International Office, in order to discuss and agree on further study work plan in Liepaja University, as the lecturer will be giving lectures for one year and a half. The guest professor visited also MPLab.
The guest lecturer will be conducting lectures in the study course “Photography” (in the amount of 2 ECTS) in “New Media Art” and in study courses “Photo technologies” (in the amount of 2 ECTS) and “Supervision of the study work/Bachelor work” (in the amount of 1 ECTS) in “Design” programme.
The Faculty of Humanities and Art is actively cooperating with Petras Saulėnas already before, when art programme students from Kauno Kolegija/University of Applied Sciences displayed art exhibitions in LiepU, therefore Liepaja University is happy that our students will have a chance to obtain new and unprecedented knowledge and skills in photography art. The guest lecturer was working as an associate professor and head of department of Photography at Justinas Vienožinskis faculty of arts in Kauno Kolegija/University of Applied Sciences (founder of “Photograpy” study programme) and has obtained the Master degree in Photography and Media Art at Vilnius Art Academy. Now he makes his own personal exhibitions.
