There has been organised an annual summer workshop in nature environment or in the city. In 2011, teachers created a project called „Footsteps of Ancestors in Works of Young Artists“, which main theme was „Fall through Lithuanian Folk Art Motives“. Participants were carving wood, painting, working with fabrics.
Department has a close collaboration with Lithuanian museums – students often visit various exhibitions, arrange projects or get involved into educational programmers. The best art students have already become winners of Vilnius district, national or international art competitions. Press of Poland have printed a few articles about works of young artists.
