Culture Exchange

Young ART students from St Petersburg visit Bath to learn English through Art. They share images of their beautiful city exhibiting alongside local artist Mike Rennie. 

Art students from St Petersburg aged between 11 and 20 stayed in Bath over the Easter period learning English at Bath Academy with an emphasis on Art and Culture. During the week spent here they visited galleries, museums and sites of cultural interest in London, Bath and the Southwest.

In Bath the group visited 44AD Art Space to view the exhibition by local artist Mike Rennie, here they were able to speak to the artist who has a body of work that reference his time spent in St Petersburg, a complete coincidence but from this meeting a joint show has come about, FaB has provided the opportunity for the young students to show their images of their city alongside the paintings of Mike Rennie.
