Full description

All the fans of Ukrainian art and traditions are invited to participate in a wonderful Petrykivka painting workshop in Kyiv. Learn about the history of the world-famous Ukrainian art of Petrykivka and receive hands-on instructions for painting from an experienced artist. Originated in the 19th century in the Dnipro region in the village of Petrykivka, this way of painting was widely used for the decorations of the interiors. In 2013, Petrykivka painting was included in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity as a phenomenon of Ukrainian ornamental folk art. The advantage of the workshop is that it doesn’t require any artistic skills – the master will provide step-by-step instructions and tips and you will design your own piece of art. Witness some beautiful samples of Petrykivka ornaments that might be used as an idea for your own work. The distinctive feature of Petrykivka is a prevalence of floral patterns like leaves, flowers, viburnum berries, grapes, blossoms and sunflowers. Spend a wonderful time and create your own traditional Ukrainian artwork that you can take home as a souvenir from Ukraine.

Seemed strange being taken to an unassuming apartment in a slightly rundown block of apartments but what a lovely session we had. The artist was so friendly and welcoming to her home and helped us understand the basics of her traditional painting craft . We produced a picture each after practicing a while to take home. We left feeling we knew more than when we arrived and had really enjoyed ourselves
