“Carmen Sylva” Art College is the only art public vocational high school in Prahova County. It is an educational institution providing primary, gymnasium and high-school education. 825 students aged between 6-18 study simultaneously general and vocational disciplines. While the first category includes ordinary subjects, taught in mass schools, the last one includes visual arts, instrumental and vocal music, architecture.
Our school has 18 classes for primary and lower-secondary school level (from preparatory to 8th grade) and 12 classes for high-school students.
While students from primary level study only music (especially violin and piano), from 5th to 8th grade they can choose either music (violin, piano, cello, viola, percussion, wind instruments) or visual arts classes. Starting with the 9th grade, they can choose music, visual arts, or architecture classes.
According to multiple prizes at regional, national, and international competitions our students received, to their high performances at final national exams (maturity exam) or to the results on the labour field after graduation, this college is placed among the best of the county and the first among art educational institutions of Romania. We have students who were accepted to study at prestigious art and music universities from Romania (National Music University of Bucharest, Music University of Cluj, Visual Art University of Cluj and Bucharest, Music University of Brasov) and Europe (Salzburg, Vienna,
Both students and teachers need a great determination and special skills and talent in order to perform at high standards.
About 50 students from secondary level and 16 teachers will be involved in most of GLOCAL activities during the 2 years of the project.
