The most intriguing day for all participants – what did the organizers of the contest come up with this time? What will be the task? Who will pose for young artists within the "Portrait" stage?

The answer was very impressive: the participants of the Open Student Contest in Painting "Silver Easel" should portray themselves on the canvas! In order to ease the work, the organizers gave them mirrors. Surprised and excited young boys and girls gathered their supplies, easels, canvases, and set to work. Just in half an hour, the territory of the Transcarpathian Museum of Folk Architecture and Life near the Uzhhorod Castle turned into one large studio. Young artists were located in different corners – somebody was on the porch of an old hut, somebody - on the window sill of the exhibition hall, someone seemed to have an open space near a wooden church, but everyone was actively engaged in work. It is almost impossible to convey the atmosphere of the whole day – one had to come here to feel and breathe the air full of autumn heat, sun, the smell of leaves and paints…

In the afternoon participants and guests of the contest as well as city residents witnessed a new project – ten metres of Teatralna square in Uzhhorod were taken by modern art! In the heart of the city, there was a unique open-air art show titled "10 metres of your opportunities". Its author is a young artist from Lviv Maksym Skvortsov. Almost for an hour, the boy painted on a ten-metre drawing paper. A few cans of acrylic paints and markers, a flight of fantasy and inspiration – and everything was ready. A unique action was also held within the framework of the Contest in Painting "Silver Easel" because Maksym was also a participant in the art event this spring. He noted, "Silver Easel" became a certain start for me. As the organizers believed in me and I realized that my work is necessary for people!"

The day ended with a not less significant event – a lecture by one of the jury members of the contest, an influential modern collage artist, a successful artist, laureate of the International Prize of the Yellow Pencil Award Serhii Sviatchenko. To listen to the artist and communicate with him came all the art elite of Transcarpathia, as well as a lot of famous artists and architects from the country’s capital. The master readily communicated with the participants, gave valuable advice and inspired them to the performance of the last contest task.

"Silver Easel" keeps amazing: incredible events, outstanding personalities, a powerful atmosphere of creativity – everything is in Uzhhorod now. The brightest youth art event of this autumn in Ukraine continues!
