The art of calligraphy can be useful for a students’ training
Saint-Petersburg. Calligraphy lessons can raise the level of training of Russian students. Thus Pyotr Chobitko, Presidium Chairman of the National Union of Calligraphers commented on the subject during a press conference in the Baltic Information Agency (BIA) devoted to the International Exhibition of Calligraphy opened in St. Petersburg, on Tuesday, September 16th.
He particularly remarked that learning calligraphy can activate hidden talents of a person and stimulate its development because the legal level of training among university entrants can lead to a lock of students in general.
“The ancients were right saying that before we start to learn art, science, crafts, we have to learn calligraphy in the first place,” he added.
Valentina Orlova, Chairman of board of the World Club of St. Petersburg, Partner of the project told that because of that reason the project is primarily oriented to families with kids. In the future, the project's organizers suggest adjusting work with children's and youth institutions. Currently we are now negotiating with Young Pioneer Palaces in St. Petersburg and with the administration of Roerich Art School (now —Tavricheskaya Art School).
