Let's create in Lithuania 2008: Internet TV

The 2nd Summer Art Academy ART BALTICA 2008 on the INTERNET TV


\'\' From 25th July till 5th August 2008, Kuršėnai Children Foster Home (KCFH) was under the way of art muses and fairy-tales enveloping the pupils of KCFH and the young talents from the regions of Lithuania with warmth. Though not everybody was able to see the world as we, the healthy ones, did, the participating people with eyesight disability had excellent communication skills and infected everyone with their strength and knowledge-thirstiness. The youth gathered from even the most remote corners of Lithuania had a rare opportunity to meet new people, create, improve their skills of communicating in foreign languages, befriend interesting and funny Lithuanian and foreign lectors, painters, musicians, followers of the philosophy of the East and instructors of yoga and Kuršėnai Karate Kyokushin Club DAO, as well as German soldiers of NATO air forces. The Summer Art Academy has been developed and organised by NGO ‘Culture Artfact’,

A lot of merry moments were initiated. Lead by doctoral student of VAA Diana Raudonienė, tactile graphic activities dominated in the program of the creative workshops of the 2nd Summer Art Academy ART BALTICA. The German artist Bernhard Wöstheinrich shared some secrets of visual arts and introduced the youth to experimental music; we learnt how to make a video diary (visual art creator and head of the technical practice Zenonas Anušauskas); we were introduced to the philosophy of the East and yoga (instructor Jurga Mikelionienė), Eastern martial art Karate Kyokushin (instructor, holder of Dan 2 - Vygandas Milieška and his pupils). Lessons of musical instrument-making were given by the percussionist and singer Hokshila Andrade. We went through moments of self-cognition at psychodrama lessons given by the actress Daiva Rudokaitė. And interior designer Kristina Kaziūnienė (Šiauliai) taught pupils of KCFH, how to frame a picture and decorate the surroundings. Participants of the project had a meeting with German soldiers of NATO air forces (continuation of the project “I strive to be like them...’), who made a painting and donated it to KCFH. In the evenings, pretty fairies attended the pupils and told fairy-tales. There were also trips to parks and churches of the Šiauliai region, foreign guests were introduced to the culinary heritage of the country and, of course, pony horses patronised by the pupils of KCFH. Works created during the 2nd Summer Art Academy ART BALTICA 2008 crowned the program of the European Arts and Parks Festival ‘Let’s create in Lithuania’ in Šiauliai, Anykščiai and Vilnius. All participants of the project were awarded certificates (100 pcs.). Works created by participants of the Summer Art Academy will be presented at various galleries and during various events.

SPONSORS: Yanos International (NL), members of the Royal Breda Male Choir (represented by Ms. Annie van den Berg) and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.
