Hamazkayin Arek Drama School’s Unique Classes at Radio Voice of Van and Lucy Tutunjian Art Gallery (Lebanon)
Aztag Daily – Though the Hamazkayin Arek Drama School has a regular theoretical and practical program, the head of the school, director Robert Arakelian always provides opportunities for children to participate in various competitions, festivals, public events, and to play roles in annual performances of the theatrical group.
The director believes that the various discussions and meetings with renowned artists, and visits to cultural centers expand the students’ horizon and develop their aesthetic taste. On Saturday, April 29, 2017, the students of Arek, accompanied by Robert Arakelian and his assistants Lena Margaryan, Sossi Apachian and Garik Hakobyan, visited the radio station Voice of Van, where they were acquainted with the works of its pavilions, library and editorial departments, getting the answers to many of their questions. Students also visited Lucy Tutunjian Art Gallery, where Angela Daghlian told about the gallery’s activities, showed the exhibited paintings, then answered the students’ questions. In the nearest future, students will also visit OTV TV station. Director Robert Arakelyan is convinced that such projects are the most important lessons contributing to students' cultural education and leaving an indelible mark on their souls.
