Art is as varied as the life from which it springs. Each artist portrays different aspects of the world. A great artist is able to take some aspect of life and give it depth and meaning. To do this he or she will make use of the many devices common to painting. These devices include composition (the arrangement of the objects within a picture), color, form, and texture.
A painter does not always need handsome and attractive subjects. Often an ordinary subject is transformed through artistry

Some artists use geometric or abstract forms, colours, and textures to create interest and meaning. Most music does not attempt to imitate natural sounds, and there is no reason why painting should always make use of nature. Briefly it may be said that artists paint to discover truth and to create order. They put into their pictures our common hopes, ideals, and passions and show us their meaning and their value. Creators in all the arts make discoveries about the wonders and beauties of nature and the dignity and nobility of man. They give these an order which enables us to see and understand life with greater depth. Beauty generally results from order but as a by-product, not a primary aim. Not all works of art are beautiful. The painter is able to intensify our experiences. By finding new relationships among objects, new forms, and new colors, they show us things in our environment which we overlooked or ignored. They make the world about us become alive, rich, beautiful, and exciting.

The subject which an artist selects for a painting depends largely upon the time in which he lives. A painter living in the Middle Ages would probably have picked a religious subject, for that was almost the only kind of topic portrayed at the time. Had he lived in Holland during the 17th century he might have painted portraits, family scenes, or arrangements of dishes, fruits, and flowers, called still lifes.

Having selected a subject the painter is faced with the problem of giving it form. Will the idea be communicated best by the use of realistic or abstract forms? Should it be done in bright or in dull colors? Should the effect be exciting or restful? The answer depends upon what the painter is trying to do. In a good painting everything in it grows out of and develops from the intent of the artist.


1. What facts do you know before?

2. What information is new for you?

3. What don’t you understand?

4. Do you have another ideas or information?

III. Стадия рефлексии (Reflection)

9. Teacher. So. it’s time to come to the conclusion. Let’s make a list of pros and cons for tourist visiting SPb. Try to identify the main problems and to find some positive things. Have you got anything to add? Can anybody sum up what has been said?



there are a lot of places to visit

accommodation is expensive

the night life is excellent

tourists do not always feel safe

the food is tasty

a lot of traffic problems

local people are polite and friendly

the climate is not always pleasant


Today we try to highlight what tourists like about Saint- Petersburg and to identify the main problems they have while visiting our city.

There are several positive things.

a) SPb is one of most beautiful cities in the word. There are a lot of places to visit (palaces. museums. exhibitions).

Also there are a lot of beautiful places around SPb. You really enjoy visiting them.

b) There are many places to eat (restaurants and cafes). where you can try both Russian and international food.

c) The night life is excellent. There are a lot of clubs and discos for different tastes.(some of them are very expensive).

d) If you are a theatre-goer. SPb is a suitable place for you. Our city is famous for its theatres. Visit Marinsky or Alexandrinsky Theatre.

However. there are many things which tourists would like to improve.

a) Accommodation is expensive. There are many luxury hotels in the centre of the city. But there are not enough small. cheap hotels (B& B or youth hostels).

b) Although local people are polite. helpful and friendly. the level of street crime is high. So. tourists don’t always feel safe.

c) Public transport is overcrowded and rather expensive. The buses are cheap but not very frequent. Underground is more efficient than other forms of public transport especially in rush hours. but it is overcrowded too.

d) The climate of SPb is not pleasant in all seasons. The best time to visit our city is in June during the period of white nights.

To sum up. on the one hand tourists can find SPb very beautiful and attractive with lots of things to do and see. On the other hand. they might find some things disappointing. In addition. tourists think SPb can be a dangerous place.

I don’t think there is anything more to say about the subject. We have covered the subject thoroughly. After some discussion. we all agreed that Saint-Petersburg is really worth visiting but we have a lot to do to avoid some drawbacks.

10. In conclusion. try to answer the following questions . (Приложение 5)

11. Teacher.

I’m afraid it’s time to stop. I want you to write down your home work. You should write a “for and against” essay on the topic we have discussed. about tourism in Saint-Petersburg. That’s all for now.

Goodbye. every one. Our lesson is over.
