Petrykivka Art Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Learn the Ukrainian decorative art style known as Petrikivka with master artist Halyna Nazerenko from Petrykivka, Ukraine.

Halyna Nazarenko with Petrykivka paintings

Petrykivka decorative painting is on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It is an ornamental folk art rich in symbolism. Once strictly practiced as a form of applied art – traditionally, folk artists adorned hope chests, walls, home exteriors, indoor stoves, etc. – today, it has evolved into a painting style for framed artwork.

Ms. Nazarenko, who hails from Petrykivka, Ukraine, the town whence the art form originates, has been drawing since childhood. She studied in an art high school and graduated from the Myrhorod Art College. Her works have been exhibited internationally. 

Adults and students age 12+, with or without experience in painting, are encouraged to join this fun workshop. All materials included in registration fee.

Seating is limited to 15 participants, so register early!
