Art studio in orphanages for adults

One of our art-therapists Evgenia works with grown-ups who left our orphanage and now live in orphanages for adults. For us they still are our kids and we try to show them that we still care about them and won’t forget to be around.

Evgenia regularly works with our children in the orphanages for adults and here’s what she tells us about her fosterlings:

“Artem is a great artist and a friend. The sound of his laugh can brighten the whole room! Artem can paint from photos, what is a valuable and unique skill. The other boy Igor is closed and one can even think rugged. But his art shows his delicate and naïve perception – he create works-mosaics with open-hearted characters who welcome a viewer in their world. Another my fosterling – Liza is a caring and loving girl. She is the only artist in my studio who’s ready to dedicate all her time to art. She never needs rest from painting and that is really inspiring!

Altogether we started preparation for our next exhibition after Alice in Wonderland and we’re already excited to see its’ results”.

A trip to factory

What boys dream about? What is often in their interest sphere? – It is cars, of course! Our boys are the living confirmation of that rule:)

Four boys, who love in orphanage 4 in Pavlovsk were taken to that trip and had a chance to visit a real car-making factory!

We’ve visited HYUNDAI factory. Both children and volunteers were very impressed to see how a car is created. Factory’s staff demonstrated us technological process, told us about the factory and a lot about cars.

We are thankful to HYUNDAI workers for their hospitality, informative and very enthralling meeting with HYUNDAI products, and moreover for the presents and delicious lunch. We also thankful to our supporters who made that happen!

About Liza

A new girl has come to our orphanage – her name is Liza, she has parents and until recently she lived in a family. Our art therapist doesn’t know the reasons why Liza appeared in the orphanage, but she isn’t comfortable here – that is obvious. Loud sounds and noises bother her: when noises are too loud Liza covers her ears, stoops head and tries to leave the place. When she can’t leave the place – she closes her eyes and ears.

Maria - our art specialist - was afraid that Liza wouldn’t want to attend art classes, but the girl actually enjoyed it a lot – she was ready to take a brush and start painting. The reason why she reacted so well was not even the trust that she had to Maria – it’s just in the art class Liza can be alone with therapist safe from the noise and other children. The very first day of art classes Liza showed that she can paint quite well, but the next time she didn’t pay a lot of attention to the process – she preferred to discover more about the class and the art therapist. We would continue to take Liza to art classes for her to have an opportunity to have a safe place and possibility to express herself.
