It is very important that you have your first choice moment of art education. We don’t know how many Talents that can be developed starting from a folk art school.Kids who may not know at first that they are committed to such an artistic event, go through stages of professional development and become great artists.I want the young and old students of folk art schools to insist on discipline and not be overlooked.What can I I assure you is that the Constana Provincial Council, through the auspices of President Mihai Lobo, will always be with the affiliated cultural institutions and will try to support such events of various sizes so that Constanta is visible locally and nationally, why not… Congratulations to the candidates!”
