International Arts Education Week 2018

Jurmala Art School - Latvia 


The project "Our terracotta choir for 100th anniversary of Latvia" began as a simple learning task for children of Jurmala art school to stimulate the interest in Latvian national costumes. After one month the result was amazing - about 50 terracotta “dolls” in different national costumes were staying in the ceramic studio on the window sill. They looked like a choir. In order to create a larger choir, the project opened doors for others.  There were parents and grandparents creatively working with their children and grandchildren, teachers, residents of Jurmala city and everyone showing interest to take part in the project, have made terracotta singers.  The project involved representatives of different occupations. Finally, we have more than 100 singer large choir and satisfied participants who understand that their creativity has no boundaries.



The 17th International Visual Art Competition "I live by the sea".


Children and youth (up to 25 years) are invited to participate and submit their artworks by the deadline of January 29, 2018. 

The competition is organized by Jūrmala Art School. The theme for the competition is "Bridge" - a bridge over the river, a bridge above the rift or a bridge between two seas... But the bridge can also unite the time, generations, people, the past and the future. So many myths and fairy tales are illuminating the philosophical meaning of the bridge in different cultures and traditions. The bridge is the connection that gives an opportunity to meet and unite different worlds together.
