Artists / Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts
In 1945 just a month after the end of the war the Institute of Fine Arts was founded in Yerevan. It was something unique in ancient Armenian cultural life. Afterwards, the talented Armenian students had an opportunity to get professional higher education within their homeland.
Through 1953-1994 the Institute of Fine Arts and the Institute of Theatre have represented one Institution of higher education. In 1994 the Institute of Fine Arts became a separate entity, and in 2000 it was named as Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts.
