thread bump plus a question: are we taught how to stretch canvas in the summer school or is that not really important? I guess I'm concerned about the art supplies (I already know it's generally cheaper and NOT a good idea to bring your own)
Actually, this is what they'll be doing tomorrow, during an Organizational Day. First we have a tour in the Academy and its museum, then we have a coffee break and then we go to a famous Sokolov Workshop where they'll be doing exactly what you've mentioned. Then they'll come back there on Monday at 10.00 to start studying.
No, you don't need to bring ANY art supplies except your lucky pencil. I'll be making photos, so I plan to make several at the nearest art supplies store to give a clear idea what is available.
Another great news, we'll have not one but TWO excellent professors, one will be teaching drawing and another one painting. Again, I'll make sure we'll have enough photos to cover all the details about this program.
I'm still looking for the painting professor's work, Tchugunov, in the post from the other thread that the school has, if his stuff is up there with the painting faculty pics. The painting faculty pics start around post 143 and I found a impromptu faculty pic of all of them there during a evaluation. I also saw some of the paintings had numbers on them, are they getting "graded"?

I think you're confused a little bit.
The link you're referring to is all about Evaluations of all departments that happens in January and May of each year. The grades that you see there is an average grade for student based on his overall performance during semester and evaluation of his best works.
I'm not sure I can locate artworks by Professor Tchugunov at this time (I'll try doing this a little later). But I can tell you for sure that our students adore him.
I kind of popped in around the site to see what's up and BookGuru is still very busy, I'm guessing when she's back there will be goodies for us to see or if we really wanted to know then we can up one the level and go to Russia :B
