It’s a wonderful start in understanding the world, when children can paint for friends across the sea, and learn about the world and its different people. One thing learned is that we are not so different. For the second year the Los Angeles-St. Petersburg Sister City Committee is sponsoring a student art exchange between student’s of the Los Angeles and St. Petersburg, Russia.
The LA display of several hundred paintings, including 82 from St. Petersburg has just closed and will be on its way to St. Petersburg in late June. It will be displayed in this famous Russian city as part of the renowned Master Class International Art Festival during the fabulous “White Nights” this summer.
The painting shown above is the work of the 9-year old Maxim Domochevsky.
