Two evenings per week, immediately after the gallery closes, the teacher and students extract a blackboard, a pair of tables and chairs from the box room; then extract paper, pens and bottled inks from their bags to conduct evening classes on calligraphy. In spite of typography and computer fonts diversity, there are enthusiasts of artistic handwriting.

Looking at the young faces of the girls it's impossible to imagine when and where they will apply their skills - to fill in school registers or herbarium tags, to prepare wedding invitations or to produce calligraphic posters.

Caption in Russian - Вечерняя жизнь в художественной галерее
Два вечера в неделю сразу после закрытия галереи преподаватель и ученики достают из кладовки школьную доску, пару столов и стулья, а из своих сумок бумагу, перья и бутылочки с тушью, чтобы провести занятия по каллиграфии. Несмотря на разнообразие типографских и компьютерных шрифтов существуют энтузиасты художественного чистописания.

Разглядывая лица девушек, невозможно вообразить когда и где они применят свое умение - чтобы заполнить классный журнал или этикетки гербария, чтобы приготовить свадебные приглашения или чтобы создать каллиграфический плакат.
