Выставка «Живи, планета!»
Едва ли найдётся ребёнок, который не любит рисовать. Красками, карандашами, фломастерами. Но не у каждого это превращается в серьёзное увлечение. Лишь немногие ребята занимаются рисованием в художественных школах, повышая своё мастерство с опытными педагогами. Юные художники с удовольствием представляют свои работы на различные конкурсы и, конечно, верят в победу.
Одним из таких конкурсов, объединивших юных художников-экологов, стала VІІІ ежегодная открытая межрегиональная экологическая выставка-конкурс детского творчества «Живи, планета!»

Exhibition "It's time to tell a story"

Exhibition «It's time to tell a story».Children's Museum, Polotsk, 2017

Every child is a personality. And only you, his parents and grandparents, know how to raise your child. But presentation of useful knowledge could be different: reading a favorite book, visiting museums, doing sports.

Follow the example of… Peter the Great!

From the history…

As it is known, Peter the Great was a real collector, bibliophile and guide. He never stored up his treasure, so he organized a cabinet of curiosities that the Emperor presented to foreign ambassadors and Russian magnates.


Our children's and grand-children's collections… What is it? Is it a picturesque mountain containing sweetie papers, stickers, toys with seashells or… something else? It's something that broadens the mind, makes a child more attentive, thoughtful and observant, isn't it?
