PETRYKIVKA PAINTING

Adults and students age 12+, with or without experience in painting, are encouraged to join this fun workshop. Decorative petrykivka artwork with its glorious bursts of color are a joy to look at, and now you can learn how to create your own petrykivka masterpiece under the guidance of master artist Halyna Nazarenko.

Petrykivka decorative painting, as described on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, 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.

Halyna 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, and were included in the Ukrainian Museum's 2015 exhibition.

Fees – $25 per person, plus $10 for materials. All materials provided. Workshop fees are non-refundable.

Take your artwork home!

Pre-registration required! **Seating is limited**, and you must call the Museum (212-228-0110) in advance to reserve a spot in this workshop. VISA and Mastercard only.
