Svetlana enjoys teaching others the magic of art, conducting numerous master classes and private lessons on various styles of painting. On October 21, she will hold such a master class on Samchikovsky painting.
Samchykivka is a traditional Ukrainian art style. It originated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the village of Samchiki. Works in the Samchykivka style resemble tapestries with large, bold patterns filled with contrasting colors. You can often see curved feathers, toothed leaves, flower petals and fanciful, flowing lines on them.
During the master class you will learn how to create a real samchikka painting from the very beginning. You will get acquainted with the history of the Ukrainian art of samchikka and get practical instructions on painting from an experienced artist.
The master class on Samchikovsky painting does not require special artistic skills. Everyone with or without painting experience can participate. All materials will be provided by the artist. There will also be refreshments and light snacks.
The artist will give step-by-step instructions and tips. And before painting a picture, you will practice with a brush. In addition, you will see wonderful Samchikovsky murals, which may become an inspiration for you. After the master class you will be able to buy some of the original Samchikovsky style paintings.
The cost to participate in the 3-hour workshop is $75. The number of seats is limited. Book your participation here. All proceeds will go to humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
