The Kharkiv State School of Art (Ukrainian: Харківське державне художнє училище, KhDKhU) is an educational institution in Kharkiv, Ukraine. It accepts a new class of students each year for instruction in the subjects of visual arts education, sculpture, decorative arts, graphic design, and landscape architecture.

History[edit]

The Kharkiv Art School was formally established in 1896 by the Kharkiv city government, based on the previous private art school of Maria Raevskaia-Ivanova. In 1912, the school reopened in a new specially-designed building by architect K. Zhukov in the modernist style with contemporary influences from older Ukrainian buildings. The first director of the new school was Alexander Lubimov, a student of Ilya Repin. The teachers were also alumni of Repin's workshop at the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg.[1]

In 1913, the school was managed by Semyon Prokhorov, formerly head of the Art School in Tomsk, Russia. In 1914, Gavriil Gorelov became its principal, followed by Aleksey Kokel in 1916. A faculty of architecture was added 1925. [1]
