    Teaching Artist: Basia Andrusko

    You will be guided through all the steps of transforming a plain egg into a work of art.  Students will learn the age old Ukrainian method of writing Pysanky. We will apply a series of melted beeswax and dyes to create traditional and individually creative patterns. When complete, the wax is melted off, revealing the vivid colors.   

    Materials (eggs, stylus, dyes, wax…) and instruction will be provided to make one or two Pysanky, within the scope of the class. We will also discuss some pysanka history and folklore. Kits may be available for purchase, so that students can continue to make Pysanky and wax-resist batik-style eggs at home, for all seasons and occasions. Finished work of instructor (eggs and jewelry) may also be available for purchase. A $10 material fee (not included in the AOY fee) will be collected by the instructor at the start of class. Here is a link for details regarding AOY Terms & Conditions.

    Basia has been writing Pysanky for over five decades, gathered around the stove in the kitchen during Lent to carry on the Ukrainian tradition. She finds the creative process very soothing and meditative,  and looks forward to the moment of melting off the wax  — the reveal of the design. She writes pysanky with traditional patterns, but also enjoys creating egg art with fresh interpretations and original designs. She feels it is her duty and privilege to share this folk art with those interested and future generations. Contact for more details.

    Teaching Artist: Luna Sconty

    ONE-CANVAS PROCESS-PAINTING is an enjoyable, artistic, mindful, and fun activity for those who wish to connect with their inner (creative) selves by awakening archetypal imagination (connecting the unconscious with the conscious aspects of self). Attendees of the Workshop will have a chance to access the Healing Forces of Creativity by establishing their personal color profile and creating their unique art journal on canvas. They will create an assemblage and work on a canvas, benefiting from the results of the assemblage.

    There are no artistic skills (or/and painting experiences) required. This is a group experience in a safe and enjoyable environment, where the attendee can enjoy exploring their creative self with like-minded peers, without any judgement or pressure.

    The instructor will send detailed information regarding what to bring, what to wear, and what to expect and will also be available for “pre-workshop” questions, so feel free to contact the instructor via email:
