For the second time in Litomyšl, we will present the results of a unique project in which talented pupils and students supported by their teachers, work for one school year under the guidance of important personalities of the Czech art scene. The art section of the MenART Academy was presented in Litomyšl for the first time two years ago with an exhibition in August's Printing Company. This year's exhibition is even richer. It summarizes the results of two years. In the unique surroundings of the reconstructed Red Tower on the premises of the Faculty of Restoration, 70 pupils, students and teachers who worked under the guidance of Alžběta Skálová, Michal Gabriel, Tomáš Císařovský and Richard Loskot present their works. The works of the above-mentioned artist will also be displayed. However, the artists will not be the only representatives of MenART in Litomyšl - selected scholarship holders of the Academy's music section will perform as part of the music festival. The MenART Scholarship Academy was established in 2018 to support the search for young talents and their growth and at the same time inspiring their teachers. MenART is a unique opportunity for students of primary art schools and their teachers to try out working with Czech leading artists during one school year. All participants will not only gain experience and inspiration for further direction in their artistic careers but also, they will gain the opportunity to publicly present the results of such cooperation. At the Academy, we focus not only on the field of fine arts and music but also on theatre and dance.
