The result of the first phase of the project was the publication of the album of the best works by young artists (aged 10 to 15 years).
The uniqueness of publication is not only that it has no analogues in the republic or in the country, but also in the fact that it is the children have managed cleverly and correctly to reflect in the original stories and images of originality and uniqueness of Tatar culture. During the project, the scientists of the Republican center of traditional culture organized lectures to familiarize children and teachers of art school №1 with the manners and customs of the Tatars, ethnic clothes, rural life, housing, and especially the national ornament. As a result of many years of cooperation – literal opening of the theme competent in children’s works, sound composition with skillful use of color and light, serious work on passing the character of images. The publication is interesting by the fact
that different techniques have been used in the submitted works – gouache, clay, dough, felt, application techniques, papier-mache, stained glass technique.
