Training in sculptural technique

The existing sites of interest related with clay and the different uses of clay are traditional indoor museums, workshops, community centres and houses of culture. None of the existing sites of interest, which are known except few galleries does not expose the contemporary use of clay for monumental open air art and for small art objects. The new open air museum will expose sculptures made after this training and the workshops. The current training is necessary because for the first time in the target area an innovative method for sculpturing will be applied – industry clay will be used for art. This new method was recently included in the classes of art students in one of the Bulgarian art universities. The art clay objects which will be made in the training and after the in the workshops will be used for the new Open Air Museum in Cherven Bryag. The Bulgarian partner has rights over the area of the open air museum where the training will be organized for 7 days. The purpose of this activity is participants to be familiar with the history of clay use in the Bulgarian and Romanian lands and modern use of clay nowadays. The course will include both theoretical and practical parts and will be implemented in an area gratuitously provided for free use of the NGO for 10 years in Cherven Bryag. Will be organized a visit to the prehistoric settlement in the "redoubt" in Telish and exposition complex reopening of Neolithic dwellings.
