Petrykivka painting workshop!
Last Saturday we had the pleasure of hosting young artists, amazing and talented children, from whom we have something to learn, I would say!
Our volunteer Alessia taught them what Petrikivka really is, in a really nice atmosphere, positive energy and smiles on our faces.
We were really pleased with how the children enjoyed our workshop and even more so with the results.
We would like this to become a tradicion so that we can enjoy their company and energy and they can learn and develop their talents. These photos are proof of how much fun we had together!
More information about Petrykivka: Petrykivka painting (or simply "Petrykivka") is a traditional Ukrainian decorative painting style, originating from the village of Petrykivka in Dnipropetrovsk oblast of Ukraine, where it was traditionally used to decorate house walls and everyday household items. The earliest known examples of this style date from the 17th century, but it continues to thrive and develop as a modern art form.
The distinctive features of this folk art style are its flower patterns, distinctive brush techniques, and its traditionally white background (contemporary painters, however, often work on black, green, red or blue backgrounds).
