We’ve got a shortcut if you want to walk down the path of Gyumri TUMOian Anahit. Scroll through this photo story to map out her day-to-day.
1 year, 2 levels of the drawing workshop, and 3 levels of programming. Anahit has managed all of this in addition to leading a life full of creative projects outside of TUMO.
Anahit’s neighborhood is surrounded by art schools (this may be why she never runs out of creative inspiration). For example, the melodies pouring out of the music school nearby influence the finishing touches on her paintings and sculptures.
Fancy a sketch? Done. In a matter of minutes, Anahit used pencil and paper to capture the hustle and bustle of the street.
Clay is also one of Anahit’s favorite materials to get creative with. “I’ll let this dry, then glaze it. You can come and have a look once it’s finished,” she says.
In Rosi Grillmair’s learning lab, Anahit and her teammates created a music player and connected a favorite playlist to an Arduino circuit board and explored the connections between multimedia and programming. On the topic of playlists: Anahit listens to rock bands like Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and The Beatles when she’s working on her art.
In her paintings, you’ll find bits and pieces of moments from Gyumri’s daily life. “I spotted a group of elderly men playing backgammon in the park and decided to create a painting inspired by them. Her favorite art period? “The techniques and color palettes used during the Renaissance were something else.”
