"Academic" character of the creative group appears also in educational projects on sharing knowledge about the Baltic gem, ways of its use for making objects of decorative, applied and jewellery art. In the "Academy", there are both young masters, and already known ones: Gennadii Zubakov, Zhanna Lopatkina, Evgenii Parkhomenko, Lev Romanenko, Aleksandr Sumerkin. Chair of the board is Liudmila Vysotskaia.
On 21 November last year studio on the Kaliningrad Regional Public Organisation of Artists "Academy of Amber" was officially opened. An exhibition "Inspiration – Gift from the Sun" was timed to coincide with the opening. Works made by visually challenged people – members of the project "We See with Hands" were exhibited. L.Vysotskaia is the first person, who began to teach visually impaired people to work with amber. 50 persons are already gaining the needed knowledge in the "Amber Workshop".

Together with other creative unions of the Kaliningrad region this association takes part in creation of image of Russian Amber Land in the modern world.
