On April 30, the Uzhgorod Children's Art School celebrated its respectable anniversary. This educational institution has made a long way to become truly model Uzhgorod school of aesthetic education.

The history of the institution dates back to 1954 when by the order of the regional department of culture, at the Uzhgorod Children School of Arts named after Tchaikovsky, the Uzhgorod evening music school for young workers was established for children who did not have opportunuty to receive music education.

As the first graduates showed, the evening music school was really needed in Uzhgorod, so in 1958 it became an independent institution. The number of students was gradually increasing, so the school had to be confined in the premises of local secondary schools, enterprises and military units.

Finally, in 1982-1983, the school received its own building on S.Petofi square. In 1984 the institution was renamed to Uzhgorod children's music school №2, and three years later - to Uzhgorod children's art school.

Today, the school has piano and vocal-choral departments, folk instruments, orchestral, music-theoretical department, the department of fine arts, the preparatory department, the department of choreography and theater classes.


"Our school is proud of its talented students and graduates, many of them distinguished themselves in prestigious regional, national and international competitions, festivals, concerts, exhibitions, joined or created prestigious creative teams - the director Natalia Gromova said - Believe me, we, teachers, rejoice about every achievement of our students and, fortunately, our students and graduates constantly give us reason for such joy."
