    hey threecharles, i think the best way to find out is to send erasmus a nice email and explain the current situation. Even if they dont have a system (they probably dont) that help students in this case, maybe they can advice you to try somewhere else.

    Just as an idea. In Belgium we have lots of art competitions. The prizes vary from smaal amounts to large amount that could buy you a new VW Golf. Im very sure similar things happen in every country. Its just an idea but participating and maybe winning one would be a nice way to add a bit to your savings account.
    Another thing that i think alot about lately is just try to sell all my recent sketches and doodles.. just for 2-10 euros for a drawing... who knows maybe i can get rid of some trash that way , maybe even find somebody interested in buying a filled sketchbook. Just remember , most people dont see the anatomy problems with that one knee or that uper left side of the hand. They just want something pretty/cool looking.
    Oh and a good friend of mine advised me this, this goes for all countries : if you have a decent or above average camera. go and search for adds looking for photographers. There are all kinds of silly photography jobs and most pay cash. My friend, she actualy used to do that as her main source of income for a period of time.( and she is not even a photographer)

    First Year Repin Students

    Here are a few photos from the last week's grading of students' work. These are from the first year students taught by Professor Petrov. In my opinion, he is one of the best, if not the best painting professors today at the Repin Academy.

    Also, on another note, I've started a FB group called "Artists to Learn From" where I plan to compile albums, some from the Old Masters, some from the 19th-20th century that are both inspiring and also helpful in answering some of our specific questions. Many Russian artists will be featured there as well. I compile these albums based on my own personal experience and my experience as a student of the prep course at the Repin Academy. We were very much encouraged to look at the old masters while we were working from our own setups. Not copying, but actually looking at the specifics, say how Prudhon or Rubens or Tintoretto treats a human figure or how Levitan or Corot pick a "motif" (subject) for their landscape.

    Also, I extensively used such references in my compositional work, when trying to design the abstract flow of a painting. Puvi de Chavannes in particular, Vermeer and Daumier to me came especially useful when working on homework compositions.

    Hi everyone!

    Eew,

    Do I have really great news for you?? YES!!
    (and I hope you don't mind me writing this here, as this info might be useful to others.)

    Also, I have answers to some other questions, asked by CA members recently.

    So...
    1. For those who speak Russian, the price for prep courses is not 5,000 euro, but 3,200 euro !! Which means you'll save 1,800... which I think is a good amount of money.

    But please, don't take this for granted. You'll have an exam when arriving here, it's both verbal and written. So please make sure that before October you get some Russian manual and begin your writing exersises. I'm quite sure you'll pass the exam, but I just want to ask you to take this seriously.

    2. The type of works that need to be send for evaluation depends on WHERE you want to study.
    Don't forget, prep courses prepare you for entering the Academy, which has 3 creative faculties: Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture. And under Painting you choose whether you want to study painting or graphics.
    So my point is, if you want to study graphics, then you don't need to send painting examples of your works. But to study painting you HAVE TO send works made in OIL. No exclusions.
    So your portfolio must include drawings and paintings of:
    - head
    - nude figure
    - composition

    Look at examples I provided earlier, to have an idea what you need to be ready for (not at such level, but in that media and technique)

    3. You don't need to wait until May!
    I'm authorized by the Academy to receive your samples of work. Then, when I have all of them together, I bring them to the Academy, they review them together with me and then give me the answer.
    This for sure must be done before the END of May. But as of today, you have plenty of time.
    (My e-mail is in my signature, down below.)
    So you can start sending your portfolios as soon as today. Just please, make sure you archive your works and the total size of the file is 5meg or less.

    Then, if they think that electronic files are not enough, they might ask you to send scans of your originals by a regular mail.
    In such case, I'll later give you an address to send them to.

    4. There is no campus during your prep courses.
    No matter whether you're Russian or a foreigner, you have to rent an apartment (later, if you enter the Academy, you can submit your request for a campus).
    I have to repeat this again and again, as this is often asked in e-mails.

    ~~~

    I've just got a permission from our partners, Practicum.org, for using images from Evaluation and Open House, so later today I'll try to upload at least ten of each, from Architecture, Graphics, and Painting.
    For those who can't wait any longer, you can register at vKontakte.ru and see hundreds of photos right there (this is the Academy online group, as of today there are 5,630 members):
    - Architecture
    - Graphics
    - Painting

    Until soon,

    B.G. (Kat)

    Eew,

    I'd recommend visiting your local Russian Embassy (or Consulate General), or better a Russian Cultural Center. I'm sure there is something related to Russia in Antwerp. Since you speak Russian, it will be easy to communicate. Tell them exactly as it is, that you plan to study at the Academy and you need to improve your writing skills. I'm sure they'll either recommend something, or even give you some materials for free.

    Also, don't forget about the endless possibilities of the Internet.

    mm I'm so excited about this. I told my teacher about this school and that I'm applying and he warned me of how difficult it is to get accepted in the prep course. He is my drawing teacher who always used to joke "well that and that are a little bit off but hey, this is not a russian art school so it's fine. This was the first thing that got me interested in russian schools cuz I thought "damn, they must be good". But I really want to try. I have sent applications to other schools but those are just my back up plans. I know this is what I want to do. I'm just really busy because I'm preparing (well, just finishing a few works) an ILLUSTRATION portfolio which will be really different from the one I'm going to send to Repin's..I have like 3 weeks time to send my illustration portfolio to the schools I applied to and only after then I'm going to send my application to Russia. Kat, you said that they want to see nude figure. Well..My figure drawing classes ended a month ago and I dont really have any finished ones that I could send. Should I ask my friends to model nude, lol ? Or should I draw/paint from a photo (though I remember you said that they might consider it low)? or If I send something like this will they laugh at me cuz I was being goofy with the skull? And even this is unfinished with the hands.

    maaaaaaan i'm such a stressy person...

    I'm sorry that this became such a memememe-post and this isn't meant to be a rate-my-portfolio post but I'm curious and maybe some other people might find this useful as well.

    Book Guru i hope you dont mind, but this should go here I think this little text tells not only exactly what is the point of the prep courses but also what the people at Repins pay attention to when they decide if they accept you or not.

    '' You really have to think less about any kind of creativity but more about craftsmanship. No talent is needed at this stage, only hard work and many hours of studying, hundreds of drawings of the same Greek foot (or nose, etc), thousands of sketches...''
    - Book Guru


    Something similar is said by Jeffrey Watts:

    "Work ethic I would take any day over talent. I would take heart and character over natural ability any day of the week. So if you're not one of those natural people, don't fret. You may pass up the naturals ten times over just out of work ethic."
    -Jeffrey Watts


    I hope i dont get sued by quoting him or something

    So Lumisade i think that the best thing you could do is to follow the instructions provided by Book Guru. Show your best attempt at portrait, figure and composition. Dont draw from photographs because they will be able to tell. Nude is difficult, for me too. I plan to draw my father. He isnt shocked quicky(russian army does weird things to people ), so he is cool about that.

    I wasnt able to find anything on european level about soponsorships for art education. The main reason i belive is because their is not enought demand for it. I already wrote about few "tricks" that are possible in Belgium. If anyone has any ideas post them here or pm me.

    Ok, finally! The fun stuff... the images.
    First things first... (though I still owe you some images from Repin's Academic years... but this can wait).

    This was taken from the Evaluation that happens every January in all faculties, all departments and workshops. During Open House you can open any door of the Academy and see the works after the Evaluation, and see whether your own judgement is close to how it was judged by Masters.

    So again, I separate all the images into several posts:
    - Graphics Faculty
    - Architecture Faculty
    - Painting Faculty

    The Painting Faculty will have new additions later: photos from the Theater Art Department (very strong this year, by my opinion), so I'll post them shortly, after the guys from Practicum.org make all the hard work in Photoshop.

    I start from the Graphics Faculty, as I think this year it represents the weakest side of the Academy, with a few exceptions - you'll see really nice samples of watercolor, but very weak drawings.

    So here we go...
