Architecture of the Show Studio (previously called ” Stage Design Studio II”) is primarily a design studio, i.e. the priority in working with students is to thoroughly work out the idea and concept in the form of a design record, before we bring about the practical implementation of the project. The nature of design issues, taking into account the participation of recipients and viewers in the planned projects, along with accompanying scenarios (eg theater, concert, exhibition or “occasional” scenography) requires a lot of practical and design experience of the teacher. My many years of work as a designer – interior architect and set designer working on important theatrical stages as well as a teacher, helps to achieve this condition. Examples of very positive effects of the assumptions adopted in the operation of the studio are the career paths of some of its graduates (e.g. dr Elżbieta Cios or dr Ewa Mróz, who are currently assistants in clothing and costume design studios) or awards and distinctions received for female students at important national scenography competitions. The awards should be mentioned here. Jerzy Moskal awarded in competitions organized at the Center of Polish Scenography (a branch of the Silesian Museum in Katowice) for scenography projects for Anna Kaczkowska (2012), Ewelina Bunia (2016), distinction for Joanna Martyniuk (2017) and Grand Prix for Katarzyna Łęczycka (2018).
