Clay Fairy Tale at Yasnaya Polyana


The Yasnaya Polyana Museum invites disabled children to workshops of the program Clay Fairy Tale at Yasnaya Polyana. The workshops will be held during this academic year at our museum‘s branch in Tula (Oktyabrskaya St., 14).

During the workshops, the children will get acquainted with clay modeling techniques and the history of pottery. Under the guidance of Yasnaya Polyana craftsmen, they will be able to make simple items on their own: souvenir pendants, bells, and plaquettes based on Leo Tolstoy’s stories for children. 


The work has two stages: modeling from clay during the first workshop, and painting on the burnt item with gouache during one of the subsequent workshops. The children will be able to take home the finished items they created with their own hands. In June of 2018, the final workshop will be organized for the children and their parents at the Yasnaya Polyana Estate.

The workshops are offered to children from 4 to 14 years of age.

The discount price of one workshop for disabled children is:

-        for groups of 2 to 4 people - 150 rubles per person,

-        for groups of 5 to 12 people – 100 rubles per person.

The days and time of the workshops will be clarified after the groups are formed. The organizers of the program will try to make the schedule convenient for all the participants.

Registration in advance is necessary, register at +7 (901) 198-55-25; +7 (4872) 47-67-12.


Background information:

Clay modeling affects the development of a child in many ways and has a general psychotherapeutic effect. Modeling stimulates visual perception, spatial intelligence and creative thinking, manual dexterity, and hand-eye coordination, has a beneficial effect on the nervous system, and encourages the fine perception of forms and colors. In the process of modeling, children acquire patience and neatness, and develop their work skills, creativity and artistic taste. In addition, and of great importance, coming into contact with something beautiful develops one‘s imagination and ability to see and feel the beauty of the world, and harmonizes the personality in general.
