We Are Drawing in the Hermitage
December 1998 - January 1999
As usual the Hermitage held its annual exhibition of children's drawings
in the foyer of the Hermitage Theatre. For the pupils of the Hermitage
Drawing Class (over 100 children from 5 to 11 years old) this exhibition
was the most important event of the year, bringing with it the opportunity
to display the best of their works in Russia's most famous museum.
For the exhibition opening, the children organised a New Year celebration
in the Hermitage Theatre, with a show based on tales from Greek mythology,
the history and life of the Museum and its collections.
