    On October 6, 2017, before Artist Day and Defender’s Day of Ukraine a meet the artistevent with a school graduate – an artist-serviceman Ihor Popovych took place in Kirovohrad Children Art School named after O.O.Osmerkin. The event was organized by the staff of O.O.Osmerkin Art-Memorial Museum.
    Popovych Ihor Mykolaiiovych told pupils and teachers of the school about his life of an artist – about studies in Dnipropetrovsk State Art College named after Ye.Vuchetych, from which he graduated in 1990, specialty “artist-designer”, and about the current perfection of his education at the Department of Art of Central Ukraine State Pedagogical University named after V.Vynnychenko, and about his experience in the Anti-Terrorism Operation zone with the 93rdseparate mechanized brigade. Everyone was affected by the story of a drawing depicting a soldier that sleeps hugging an automatic rifle. The artist told that when he drew self-propelled artillery platforms worked fighting back the enemy while defending Donetsk airport, and despite loud booming, the troop didn’t wake up being tired by the war paths.

    A symbolic addition to the meet the artist event with an artist-serviceman Ihor Popovych became a travel photo exhibition “Revolution of Dignity.

The pupils of the art school looked through the shown photos that documented the events of the present history of our State, with a great interest filling with patriotic spirit and a desire to live in a free, peaceful Ukraine.
