“I had to go through the internal selection for "Tavrida" - recorded a video card, made a portfolio and took a test. For most of the time during the shift, my classmate and I developed multifunctional points of attraction for RZhD stations. “Russian Railways” has many specialized tours: for example, to the Caucasus, Baikal, to the seaside vineyards and so on. It was necessary to develop an art object: a pavilion that would draw attention to this tour. Then we had the defense ceremony of projects with the participation of representative of the holding company. And in our spare time we went to lectures of other art schools, for example, in modern art”, - said Alexander Shatilov.
