Crafts for Kids: Wax Resist Pysanka Greeting Card (Virtual)
Pysanky (pronounced: “PYH-sahn-kah”, singular: “pysanka”) are Ukrainian decorated eggs, usually made during Easter time or the weeks leading up to Easter. The word pysanka comes from the Ukrainian “pysaty”, “to write”.
In this workshop, young artists will learn about the symbolism, colors and legends of traditional pysanka egg designs. We will use a wax resist method (using crayons) to make your own pysanka themed greeting card, inspired by the cards of pysanka designs in the museum collection.
This is a live, interactive workshop and will NOT be recorded.
You must provide your own supplies for this workshop.
