In our studio we specialise in drawing and painting techniques and reproduced graphics, such as risography, linocuts, woodcuts, silkscreens and the production of illustrations, calligraphy, posters, zines, comics and courses in these techniques. Our ambition is to make the graphic arts (based on traditional and new techniques) widely known to a visually sensitive and knowledgeable audience.
So, at Primanima Print House, we not only fulfill print orders, we also offer graphic design courses and workshops for all ages. We particularly recommend a visit to the studio as an art university preparation for those aged 16+ who plan to continue their studies by going to art university. But we also offer arts and crafts sessions for adults who, at some phase in their life, have discovered that it's time to get creative, to do the creative work they've been longing to do!The graphic techniques used in the studio include: risography, linocut, woodcut, silkscreen, collography, monotype, other drawing and painting techniques. We also teach these techniques in our workshops and our webshop offers prints made in our studio, as well as various art tools and materials we use.
This year, Primanima joined the European network of All Digital, which gives us even more opportunities to initiate collaborations and to present and promote the creative pedagogical side of animation. Thanks to this, we have now been invited to Italy.
The PrimaTeen project was launched in 2019, when we introduced for the first time a new section of animated shorts dedicated to teens. PrimaTeen has now grown into a complex programme that, alongside the Primanima festival, also visits schools, other festivals and collective spaces. To mark the occasion, we interviewed the creators of the initiative, Dóra Bartal, programme curator of the PrimaTeen section, and Krisztina Peer, clinical child psychologist and consultant of PrimaTeen programme.
