exhibition, who showed the author’s works from the series: Ukrainian
Cossacks, Guardian Angels, and Historical Portrait Gallery as well as
his working equipment – tools, foam plastic, wood pieces of different
species, manuals, other materials he uses when creating the miniatures
that are exhibited in an improvised Artist Studio. Also, the pupils
visited the other halls of the museum, including the memorial hall
dedicated to the life and work of Oleksandr Osmerkin, Professor of
Painting. To get more information about the artist and the museum the
participants of the event visited the museum website. They looked
through the interesting sections Selected Events and Selected
