“The warmth colours, the deep feeling with each painting made us believe in these words even more”- noting the visit’s organizer Serli Tekayan.
The participants’ impressions were very positive and they were greatly admired by the cultural masterpieces. For most of the participants it was the first visit to Martiros Sarian House-Museum and it was an interesting experience for them, which is worth carrying in their memories.
“I am very impressed by the beauty, simplicity, harmony and the atmosphere of the museum. I hope this amazing place will be kept safe, so that the next generations would have chance to visit and get acquainted not only with the life and activity of the bright representative of the Armenian art Martiros Sarian, but also with the Armenian history and culture”- said one of the participants.
