YE-"Naboer og Venner 2015" - norsk-russisk sommerkunstskole for Ungdom
Start date: Aug 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"Neighbours and Friends 2015" is a joint project between Art School Tromsø and Art School No1, Arkhangelsk. We will arrange a summer art camp for Norwegian and Russian youths at Grøtavær school camp on the island of Grytøya. The participants are 13 - 17 years of age. The teachers and most of the leaders from both schools are professional artists. The number of participants is 32. The main object of our project is to give youths the opportunity to develope their artistic talents and skills, contribute to the knowledge exchange, increase the understanding and respect for other cultures ans also establish new friendships. The art teaching will be given by four professional artists who works within the fields of drawing, water colours, pastels and textile redesign. The youths wil be divided into groups of 6 with participants from both countries. This will enable a close contact between teacher and student. We will make a point of the social aspect. In order to get to know eachother better, the participants will stay together as a group during the project. They will be gathered in the everyday life like eating, sleeping etc. All will take part in excursions and organized activities. Grøtavær is a small village situated on the coast of Troms, Northern Norway. It is surrounded by a beautiful landscape with farmland and mountains, ocean beaches and a number of smaller islands. Here are all the facilities we need in one and the same place. To get there we go by bus through parts of Troms. The trip gives us a good opportunity to impart local history of art and culture.
