A Drawing School in Tobolsk
In 2017, Tobolsk saw the opening of a drawing school of a new format based on the Art Lab platform. Training at the school has drawn in 293 city residents of various ages who have been learning to create paintings using such techniques as acrylic, pastel, and watercolors. More than 70 paintings created as part of the training were later displayed at a specially organized exhibition.
Master classes held in the cities of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug
In 2019, Noyabrsk and Muravlenko hosted a series of master classes covering the following six subjects: galaxy watercolor paintings, acrylic painting on sliced wood surfaces, acrylic painting on round-shaped and miniature canvasses, creating postcards, classic botany-themed and 3D fashion illustration. By the end of the training, the residents of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug produced a total of 235 original works of art. Each city held an open vote to determine the three winners whose artworks went on to be posted on electronic billboards.
Master classes in Blagoveshchensk (Bashkortostan)
A series of master classes on painting in 17 different techniques (styles) took place in Blagoveshchensk (Republic of Bashkortostan) in the fall of 2020. The classes were taken by more than 450 local residents. Following the master classes, an exhibition of more than 170 pictures was set up. The authors of the best paintings were presented with gift packages, and their pictures were put on display on the city's billboards. As part of the course, an intensive training workshop for 12 teaching artists was arranged.
