Here some comments of some schoolchildren:
"I learned a lot about the traditions and customs of different nations, about ornaments, the different types and their meanings. We looked at the culture and creativity not only in painting, but also through songs, dances and crafts. I would like to write the story of my life on an ornament."
"In class today, I have learned that nature should be protected in order to preserve clean air, water and animals. Now I draw, as factories pollute the air and as it harms nature and us - the people. I will show the drawings I made to my friends, classmates and relatives as a reminder that you need to pick up trash and do not pollute water."
"I liked that it was not just drawing lessons or ecology, biology and history, but something uniting all the topics together in one subject. You can draw during the lesson, come up with your picture or share with schoolfellows different ideas. During the lesson I also learned a lot about the underwater world on the «invertebrates", as the largest invertebrates - is the inhabitants of the underwater world."
