Department of Monumental Painting is associated with deep classical traditions and experience accumulated by world art for the millennium, as well as with the modern artistic process. The staff of the department focuses on the comprehensive preparation of an artist-universalist, who masters a wide store of artistic techniques and materials of monumental art: fresco, scratch-work, ceramics, mosaics, stained glass, levkas, etc., various technologies and painting styles.

Supporting the students' creative and personal preferences, the department provides an opportunity for creative students to specialize in the areas of paintings of public buildings and temple buildings of different denominations, as well as modern trends of monumental art: mural, street art, etc.

The many years of experience of the department contributed to the fact that in 2018 the branch of sacral painting became a separate area of study.
This gives an opportunity to purposefully study the theory and practice of temple art, in particular, the iconography of church painting, icon painting and various artistic techniques used in modern practice of sacral culture.
