Croatia – Arts and Sculptures

Students will be situated in the area halfway between Zagreb and Varaždin, connected by train to both of these cities, so there are plenty of opportunities for trips.

On planned placement dates, there are several cultural events, that forms part of the training, like Cest is d’best and Folklore festival in Zagreb, Špancirfest in Varaždin and Renaissance fair in Koprivnica. 

The programme with Sasha Fabris starts with a three-day introduction and orientation period, which includes a tour of Zagreb and visit to The Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb, established in 1880, by the initiative of the Arts Society. In the afternoon students visit the Croatian Museum of Naïve Art dedicated to the work of naïve artists of the 20th century. The museums exhibit consist of over 1,900 works of art – paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints, mainly by Croatians but also by other well-known international artists in the genre.

Students will take part in the following training events:

  • Sculpture and drawing sessions: Students will be encouraged to include skills from the previous weeks trainings to develop an installation. There will be a sustainability element revolving around use of recycled and natural materials. Each student will have an input to the sculpture, which will be publicly displayed.


The Turing grant will cover accommodation, food (3 meals a day), return, flights, insurance, transport to site and supervision. Participants will have to make sure they have their EHI or GHI card and budget for personal purchases and excursions.
