The theme of the third shift «Pole of Friendship — Artek», which started at the International Children’s Center, is devoted to art. The participants of the shift will be 750 schoolchildren from different regions of Russia.
In the year of the cultural heritage of the peoples of Russia, we hold a shift dedicated to art. The creative events that we have prepared for the children contribute to the development of fantasy and imagination in children, the ability to express their thoughts, form an interest in studying the characteristics of the culture of various peoples of our country. I am sure that deepening into the study of contemporary art will allow the children to think and rethink what they see, — the press service of the ICC quotes Artek director Konstantin Fedorenko.
The director of the International Children’s Center emphasized that the Day of United Actions will be an important event of the shift — Artek, together with the whole country, will celebrate the reunification of Crimea with Russia. Artek residents will take part in the “Magic Palette of Crimea” festive program, get acquainted with the traditions and culture of different peoples living on the peninsula.
