Anastasia Kizilova is a graduate of the 2015 School for Young Artists programme.
«For me, the School for Young Artists became a milestone, a threshold, after which I became a full-time contemporary artist. Before the School I used to spread myself too thin. After the School, I’ve focused on my artistic strategy and worked only as an artist since then. At PRO ARTE, I really loved classes with invited artists and curators, and saw no separation between 'students' and 'professors' roles. The visiting artists showed a lot of attention to our practice and were gentle with us, so we didn't feel like students but rather a part of the art community».
