Music becomes more accurate. In this, the very serious and speechless singing of the giants becomes noticeable and the giants slowly approach the limelight. From left to right, vague, red, that resemble birds a little quickly fly by. (KANDINSKY, 1991, p.146)

Aesthetics travels through imaginary worlds and opens paths leading the observer its arms. When embarking on these trails, consciousness also crosses spaces through the universe of colors and shapes. And the intellect sails through these seas, reinventing itself every moment, allowing the spirit, the sensations of pleasure and rapture. The fruit that is harvested from Art is the delight and the possibility of strolling through different immensities, glimpsing the beings that inhabit them.

It is possible to rest the gaze on these universes or to make their characters materialize in the real world, from a journey through charm, at the El Greco Museum. The Fodele Cultural Association “Domenikos Theotokopoulos” opens the summer events of the "Fodele Cultural Festival", dedicated to El Greco, at the El Greco Museum, in Greece, with an exhibition of works by students from the Warsaw-Higher School of Art in Warsaw. The event promotes students' creativity and talents, including the School's theses with various themes.

Among the activities there are theatrical makeup techniques with clothes and full costumes, including hats, shoes and jewelry.

Among the images, there are the advertising posters by Paulina Ledzion (Figures 1, 2 and 3) that promote the idea of train travel. The scenes include Architectural landscapes, graphic forms and silhouettes. The elements appear to be integrated and their forms are classic and light. From the makeup project by Godziemba-Trytek (Fig. 4) a serene and harmonious female face emerges, covered by a blue veil, she seems to take shape, she observes the melancholic world. Her makeup technique is theatrical and has a strong connection with Art. For Weronika Olczyk (Fig. 5), the original FX makeup technique, allowed the human body to transform itself into a new creative material, the Living Statue. Their beings seem to move slowly in a loving gesture, in a gentle embrace.
