Lilit Sargsyan, a recipient of FAR’s Gulamerian Scholarship Program, recently debuted her sculpture and collages at a Yerevan State College of Fine Arts exhibition.
Lilit was raised at the Yerevan Nork Orphanage #2, where she arrived just days after she was born. As a child she used to craft small figurines out of putty and clay or compile collages out of whatever material she could get her hands on.
FAR’s Gulamerian Program supports older orphans as they transition into adulthood and pursue their own career path at colleges or trade schools. This program has helped Lilit, now in her third year at Yerevan State College, pursue her lifelong dream of being a sculptor.
