This year, students of art departments of art schools of Satkinsky and Ashinsky districts, as well as children art schools of Chelyabinsk became participants of the specialized shift – the open plein air. In total, 70 young artists gathered in Uralets children's camp.

Last year the plein air was held under the guidance of Valentin Dmitriyev, professor of Stroganov Moscow State University of Industrial and Applied Arts, the head of painting department of the National Design Institute, a member of the Union of Artists, who introduced children to the classical school of painting.

It was possible to get acquainted with works finally created by children on June 29 at the end of the shift at an open presentation. On the same day, awards were given to the best of them, according to guests from the academy. 11 young artists were awarded with certificates of successful completion of the plein air.
