  • Childrens Art School of Vologda will named after Vladimir Korbakov

  • Necessary documents are being prepared for it now. They got upon an idea to name the school after the legendary artist of Vologda in 2013 when Vladimir Korbakov died.

    Vladimir Korbakov is the only artist who was awarded the title of the honoured freeman of Vologda. He did a lot for our school, delivered various master-classes for children and invited them to his workshop. Sometimes boys and girls even copied his works. It is very honorable for us that our education institution is preparing for such an event and will be named after famous artist Vladimir Korbakov, said Natalya Kulizhnikova, principal of the Childrens Art School of Vologda.

    Vladimir Korbakov participated in the Great Patriotic War. He volunteered for frontline duty in 1941. He was seriously wounded in the battles of Moscow in 1942 and had four operations. He returned to Vologda after the war. The creative work of Korbakov leaves nobody indifferent. He became the full member of the Russian Academy of Arts in 2007. The pictures of the talented Vologdas artist can be seen in the Tretyakov Gallery, the State Historical Museum, and the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War in Moscow. The largest collection is kept in the Vologda Regional Picture Gallery.

    It should be added that the solemn ceremony of appellation of the Childrens Art School of Vologda is scheduled for October 28. This date coincides with the second anniversary of death of the Peoples Artist of Russia.
