Aliaksander Shantarovich,


Since 1947

Minsk Art College was founded in 1947

In the aftermath of World War II, Belarus had no single art educational institution. Belarus made a fresh start in 1947. Minsk Art College became the center of art life of Belarus.

Belarus compatriots, graduates of the art academies of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) and Moscow laid the foundation of the Belarusian national school of fine art. The first graduates of Minsk Art College also continued to study in Leningrad and Moscow, and since 1953 in the faculty of fine arts of Belarusian State Theater-Art Institute (now the Belarusian State Academy of Arts). Many of our graduates continue their studies at foreign academies.

Minsk Art College since 1969 is named after famous Belarusian artist and teacher Aleksei Glebov.

Many of famous artists came to the art kingdom by graduating from Minsk Art College, among them Mikhail Savitsky, Mai Dantsig, Georgy Poplavsky, Victor Gromyko, Arlen Kashkurevich, Leonid Shchemelev, Ivan Misko, Lev Gumilevsky, Anatoly Baranovsky, Vasily Sharangovich and other well-known artists.

The main advantages of Minsk Art College have always been the maintenance of the classical traditions and the combination of professional skills with modern creative solutions.

Minsk State Art College named after A. Glebov directly subordinate to the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Belarus.
