Выставка «Живи, планета!»
Едва ли найдётся ребёнок, который не любит рисовать. Красками, карандашами, фломастерами. Но не у каждого это превращается в серьёзное увлечение. Лишь немногие ребята занимаются рисованием в художественных школах, повышая своё мастерство с опытными педагогами. Юные художники с удовольствием представляют свои работы на различные конкурсы и, конечно, верят в победу.
Одним из таких конкурсов, объединивших юных художников-экологов, стала VІІІ ежегодная открытая межрегиональная экологическая выставка-конкурс детского творчества «Живи, планета!»
