at Catherine the Great’s Academy, in St. Petersburg!

After visiting the Hermitage, and the Russian Art Museum in St. Petersburg, why not try making russian art for yourself? Here, at Catherine the Great’s Academy, you can experiment for yourself the making of contemporary Russian art. These russian art classes, or Master Classes, are given through ArtTours. ArtTours is held by a group of St. Petersburg artists who are interested in giving tourists their own feel for contemporary russian art. According to Grout (2008), these master classes include ” painting, …sculpture, stained glass, jewlery, art restoration, and russian theater and ballet.”  Grout (2008) adds on that these classes “are taught by professors at the academy adn take place either at studios inside the opulent school, at artists’ private workshops, or at nearby Peterhof in a former nobleman’s mansion….The master classes are custom designed and can run anywhere from five days to three months. Master classes start at 10 euros ($15) an hour. The price for the two-hour workshops ranges from 5 euros(about $7.50) for pictorial art to 30 euros ($ 45) for jewelry making.”
