From 2018 to 2020, 125 buildings of art schools were repaired, about 10 thousand musical instruments were purchased.
The project “Art for Children” continues in the capital, within the framework of which the city is putting in order the children’s art schools. At the moment, 70 percent of the planned work has already been completed. The project will be completed in 2022. Told about it Sergei Sobyanin while visiting a secondary school with additional education “Class-Center”.
“We work a lot on schools, on schools of art. Huge program. Probably, I don’t know, there are few such programs in the world, where at the same time 150 buildings were reconstructed, repaired, or the school was given new premises. Not an accidental story, not exclusive. Your school is unique in itself, ”said the Moscow Mayor.
Sergei Sobyanin also congratulated Muscovites on the Day of Cultural Workers. He expressed gratitude to those who are involved in this holiday for their great work and wished to quickly go through all the difficulties associated with the pandemic.
“Tens of thousands of people work in this industry – in theaters, museums, libraries, art schools. And this is such a pivot of the cultural, spiritual development of Moscow. These are people who give their heart, creativity, skill and talent to the Muscovites, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.
Story“Class-center” began with the creation in 1981 of a children’s theater – a satellite of the Moscow Theater for Young Spectators, which then became part of a unique school opened in 1990 in the north of Moscow at the address: Bolshaya Akademicheskaya Street, 11a.
Teaching in the “Class Center” is carried out according to the author’s methodology “Theater as a system of humanitarian education.” It was developed by the permanent director of the school, Sergei Kazarnovsky. In parallel with the study of general subjects, students receive additional music and theater education here. They learn to play the piano, violin, flute, saxophone, trumpet, accordion, guitar, percussion and other musical instruments, as well as study solfeggio, musical literature, the basics of acting, dance, stage movement, stage speech, art, vocals and other disciplines …
Today, 427 people study at the Klass-Center, 41 teachers, 64 teachers of creative disciplines and seven accompanists work. Many of the teachers have the honorary titles “Honored Teacher of the Russian Federation”, “Honored Artist of the Russian Federation”, “Honored Worker of Culture of the Russian Federation”, “Honorary Worker of General Education of the Russian Federation”, “Honorary Worker of Education of the City of Moscow” and others.
Students of the “Klass-Center” have repeatedly become winners of international and All-Russian competitions, prize-winners of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren. Some school graduates choose a creative profession and enter leading specialized educational institutions, demonstrating a high level of professional training.
In 2019–2020, within the framework of the “Art for Children” project, work was carried out on a comprehensive renovation of a five-story school building with a total area of 6.6 thousand square meters. A major overhaul of the facade was carried out, which was decorated with decorative lighting. The entrance lobbies, roofing, floors and ceilings in the premises were repaired, doors, windows, heating devices and utilities were replaced.
“The school has changed very seriously in recent years. Modern renovation, aesthetics, new equipment, new musical instruments, ”Sergei Sobyanin said.
Within the framework of the Art for Children project, new musical instruments were purchased: a grand piano, two pianos, an accordion, a vibraphone, two guitars, a synthesizer, as well as furniture and educational equipment.
The students of the school told the Mayor of Moscow how they practiced acting during distance learning, how they told the texts and got used to the images.
“Of course, the best thing here is to communicate with each other, with teachers. Moreover, art, of course, requires direct contacts and communication. So thank you for surviving this period of time with dignity, thanks to the team, ”added Sergei Sobyanin.
According to the Mayor of Moscow, the city is trying to remove the imposed restrictions, but the situation still requires control, and much will depend on the epidemiological situation.
The workers also improved the surrounding area: they replaced the curbs and existing pavements of paths and sidewalks, sports and playgrounds, installed new hockey boards, and laid out lawns.
For the performance “Romeo and Juliet”, a set of decorations was created in the school yard – a rotunda “Summer Stage” with a turntable with a diameter of 8.6 meters, a colonnade, entablature, porticoes, a dome and other elements. The rotunda dome is equipped with modern lighting equipment, which allows creating various light and visual effects.
