DESCRIPTION

Midway through his course, Andrey Velikanov traditionally invites the audience to engage in New Year’s Eve festivities.

Christmas and New Year greetings followed by a short music program will replace the lecture block, while instead of the seminar, the group will be divided into two teams who will compete in an intellectual game featuring tricky puzzles, such as guessing an artwork from a school pupil’s written description of the painting. The contest will be equally exciting for participants and mere observers.
