NOTA INFORMATIVA

Oferta de Cicle de doble titulació d’enquadernació i gravat i tècniques d’estampació.

Aquest cicle formatiu forma l'anomenat Pack amb gravat i tècniques d'estampació (que suposa l'avantage de possibilitar una doble titulació).

Per cursar un dels cicles formatius del pack l’alumne/a es matricula a una de les especialitats. En el primer curs hi ha matèries comunes alhora que hores específiques en els tallers de l' especialitat escollida.

IMPORTANT !: en el moment de la matrícula s'ha d'inscriure al codi comú corresponent al cicle de gravat i tècniques d'estampació. És després, a la pròpia escola, on optarà per una de les dues especialitats. La titulació final obtinguda serà la cursada, sigui enquadernació o sigui gravat.

Opcionalment, amb sols un tercer curs podrà obtenir la titulació en l'altra especialitat afí (doble titulació)

S’ha creat també una assignatura que serà comuna a tots els alumnes, el Laboratori Experimental de Litografia i Enquadernació, que vol ser ressò de la demanda per part de l’alumnat d’una assignatura on es fusioni la imatge i el concepte del llibre, on l’alumna aprengui nocions d’edició, de concepció i realització de carpetes, llibres, llibre-objecte, amb l’aprenentatge de tres tècniques: l’enquadernació, la litografia i la xilografia. Aquesta assignatura serà molt flexible, adequant-se a les necessitats i capacitats de cada alumna.

Les altres assignatures com dibuix o tècniques gràfiques industrials son comunes a les dues especialitats, com es feia fins ara.
