Crafts for Kids with the UHEC: Hutsul Painted Plate (Virtual)

In this workshop, young artists will learn about this painting style of the Hutsul people and recreate their own painted decorative plate.

The Hutsul people lived in the Carpathian Mountains in Western Ukraine (also known as Hutsulschyna). Centers of artistic craftsmanship developed in places such as Kosiv and Kolomiya in Western Ukraine. They were known for various styles of folk art, including painted ceramic objects which were painted in the distinct brown-green-yellow color scheme.
