HSE’s Courtyard Became a Piece of Art

On May 28th, 2015, the festival of children’s and youth art, ‘We Draw the World on the Pavement’, took place in Strogino. The participants spent four hours turning the 162-sq.m. area in front of the HSE MIEM building into a canvas united by the themes of peace, joy and spring. 

School and student teams of 4-6 artists took part in the competition, and prizes were awarded by a jury consisting of renowned artists and designers.

The weather on the day of the festival at certain moments made the people think that rain would be the eventual winner in the pavement drawing competition. But, fortunately, everything worked out. The Rainbow Whale team consisting of Ekaterina Krasilnikova, Ekaterina Kulakova, Ekaterina Kolosova, and Polina Chernykh, students of School 1551, took first place. Students of School 1748 were second with the Reveurs Team including Ekaterina Opryshko, Parvana Maksimova, Anna Ganshina, and Viktoria Ovechkina. Third place went to the students of the HSE’s Design programme, Zverstaiki (Ksenia Lazareva, Angelina Chulkova, Dasha Yasnetsova, Anton Fedotov, and Lena Birkina).

Special paints and colours used by the participants will allow the drawings to remain bright and visible on the pavement for the next 18 months.
