For many centuries, a country’s culture has been a marker that reflects the state of society and its moral and intellectual content. Culture is multifaceted: it can amaze connoisseurs and inspire creators far beyond the territorial border of a particular country. It has a huge impact on people, while fostering and shaping a civic position, among other things. Russia’s unique, vivid, and diverse cultural heritage is an indisputable pillar and integral part of world culture. Learning from what predecessors have done and following the path of cultural development is one of the primary tasks we all face as part of an individual’s educational process. How is the image of a teacher identified today? Who opens the doors to art, provides guidance in creative professions, and lays the foundation for an individual’s cultural education?
