TOPIC OF THE PROJECT:

CREATIVITY UNITES: PRESERVING GLOBAL VALUES

The major topic of the School program is the value selection between the internal own values and what affects a man from the outside, such as mass media, Internet, and common stereotypes. How does a modern man pass through such value conflict? What contradictory values do people face? What value dilemmas do they solve? How to save global values and avoid instantaneous influences?

Participants will have to reflect the struggle inside a modern man between eternal true global principles and aggressively imposed inane temptations of the modern world.

SESSION PROGRAM INCLUDES:

Project participants will attend lectures, intensive courses and master classes provided by the professors of the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts, and get acquainted with the art community of the city and with the students of the Academy. Students will also have a cultural program to spend their leisure time visiting world famous museums, theatres and galleries in Saint Petersburg. Creation of an artwork on the suggested topic will finalize the course.

ABOUT ST. PETERSBURG ACADEMY OF ARTS

The St. Petersburg Academy of Arts is a renowned school of Russian fine art. It was founded in the mid-18th century (1757, established in 1764) to train and educate talented artists, sculptors and architects. The first teachers were Europeans, who, over time, gave way to prominent Russian artists who created the academic canon. For centuries the main field has been historical painting, and pathos has always been valued here. Generations and circumstances have changed, but the priorities and reference points have remained unchanged. Expressive themes, imagery, and compositional integrity have always been valued within the walls of the majestic building on the Neva embankment. Painting has always been the most important discipline.
e
In Imperial Russia and during the Soviet era, the Academy of Arts was an educational center and a community of experts with experience and knowledge that made it possible to carry out large-scale government projects. The preservation and study of artistic heritage was thoroughly pursued. Nowadays, not only Russians but also young artists from more than thirty countries from Eurasia, North America, South America, Australia and Africa study here.
