Adam Hoffmann (1918–2001) was a painter by education and a teacher by vocation. He taught students of the Secondary School of Visual Arts in Kraków and Katowice. Concurrently, he carried out his pedagogical work at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków and its branch in Katowice. He devoted himself to teaching so much that he could not find time for his own creative output. He set developing in his students a liking for art as the most important goal. As recalled after the years by one of his pupils, Zbylut Grzywacz, the subject of his teaching, apart from drawing and composistion, was also educating students in terms of “common sense, anti-academicism and artistic non-conformism”. Drawing in sketchbooks served as basis for his teaching. He advised his students to make at least three sketches a day. An element of the sketchbook was copying and analysing works of past masters. Among his students (first at the level of secondary school and then university) were the members of Wprost group (in Kraków: beside the above mentioned Grzywacz, also Maciej Bieniasz and Jacek Waltoś, and in Katowice Leszek Sobocki), who unanimously describe him as a master, teacher and spiritual leader.
