Schools of Calligraphy Will Be Opened in Russia

February 29, 2008

Some famous Russian calligraphers expressed the desire to open calligraphic schools in their cities. The artists applied with request to MVK International Exhibition Company launching the project Calligraphy: the Art of Excellence. The executives of MVK discussed the request and approved the idea. If everything goes right, one of the schools will be opened in Moscow at Sokolniki Exhibition Centre, and another one will work in St Petersburg at Russian Institute of the History of Arts.

By the way, International Calligraphic Exhibition aimed at restoring the interest for this forgotten kind of graphic art, will be organized by MVK International Exhibition Company in autumn. On the exhibition days the visitors will try their hand at calligraphic art and professionals will attend master classes of the world famous calligraphers.

The exhibition will lay the foundation for Mobile Calligraphic Museum containing outstanding samples of Slavic script and important historical handwritten documents from all over the world.
