First calligraphy lesson for Moscow schoolchildren and their teachers
The Grand Opening of the National School of Calligraphy was held today. Pupils of schools located in the Eastern Administrative Okrug (Moscow) met at the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy.
The hall was overcrowded by all those who were eager to take part in the first demonstrational lesson and to see the master-class of calligraphy given by the school supervisor Yuri Koverdyayev. Alexey Shaburov, Director of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy explained the notion of calligraphy and how this art form had been developing in Russia within the recent three years to the kids. Then Lyudmila Kulanina, psychotherapist and psychologist referred to facts concerning favorable influence of calligraphy onto human health.
After the presentation pupils and their teachers animatedly participated in the master-class; they were divided into groups to visit the museum and were actively signing up for calligraphy courses. The opening ceremony was attended by many calligraphers who will be giving lessons at the National School of Calligraphy. The number of those who wanted to take part in the training was so great that Andrei Sannikov gave an impromptu master-class.
There still are some vacant places in the groups but they will be filled up very soon. For more details please contact Oksana Saloshina, our education manager: +7 495 995 0595 (ext. 465), or go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
