Adults and students age 12+, withor without experience in painting, are encouraged to join this fun workshop offered by a talented artist Marina Volk.

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 Marina Volk! 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.

Ms. Volk, who hails from Western Ukraine has been drawing since childhood. She is a self learner who became an instructor at a beauty salon. Later on she created accessory line for a well known designer Lyuba Chernikova and her collection.
Marina is currently a co-owner of #MavkaJewelry.
