SIBUR has been supporting Draw&Go drawing studios in Tobolsk, Muravlenko, Noyabrsk, and Blagoveshchensk (Republic of Bashkortostan). In 2021, local residents of Nyagan, Pyt-Yakh and Svobodny also could perfect their painting skills in Draw&Go studios.

A Drawing School

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.

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. 

In 2021, the studio gave around 120 free master classes for residents of Svobodny, Pyt-Yakh, Nyagan and Tobolsk to teach them such fine arts techniques as watercolors, acrylic and pastel, with over 1,500 local residents in attendance. The works of art created by the attendees of the master classes were used to set up an exhibition, with the authors of the best paintings being presented with art supplies kits as gifts. Photos of the winners and their artworks were posted on banners, lightboxes and billboards placed throughout the city.

A training program for professional artists

The 2021 educational program consisted of classes on acrylic painting using Draw&Go's own proprietary methodology, a brief introduction to the theory and practice of modern fashion art, a master class on galaxy watercolor painting, and a theoretical module on the basic principles of interacting and communicating with students. All aspiring artists received certificates of course completion, as well as instructional materials and access to Draw&Go's online lessons.
