The photostory features ten contemporary Armenian artists and their studios, where the artists' creative environment and its diversity are revealed through the eyes of the Cafesjian Teen Council members.
"The Cafesjian Teen Council members always initiate and implement interesting and creative projects. The Art Studio project stands out among those. We are delighted to present the exhibition, created as a result of that project, in different regions of Armenia. We are grateful to our permanent partner Beeline, whose support enables us to implement such unique projects. We would also like to extend our gratitude to Mr. Arman Tsaturyan, Director of the National Gallery of Armenia, for the cooperation," stated Vahagn Marabyan, Acting Executive Director of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts.
"The Cafesjian Center for the Arts is doing an important job of supporting young people in their first steps in the sphere of art. It is crucial that it not be confined within Yerevan and for the other regions of Armenia to be involved in the process – both as participants and audience. We are happy to be a part of this and support the young artists’ growth and development as much as we can", - mentioned Beeline Armenia CEO Andrey Pyatakhin.
The CCA and Beeline have been cooperating since 2011. In the frames of this long-term cooperation, teen, family and other educational programs with a focus on children's and teenagers' aesthetic education are regularly implemented at the Center.
The mission of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts is to bring the best of contemporary art to Armenia and present the best of Armenian culture to the world. Dedicated to its mission, the Cafesjian Center for the Arts has been organizing a wide variety of exhibitions, presenting unique works of contemporary art, offering movie screenings, concert series, lectures and educational programs since its opening in November 2009.
