About this pro

We offer classes in the Ukrainian folk art of Pysanky (Easter eggs) using the traditional wax and die methodology. These clases are a great experience for a group of friends or family that persons of almost all ages can enjoy. You can chose to learn traditional symbols to use or create your own designs.   The craft of pysanky can be a very calming and therapeutical experience whether you work alone or in a small group. 
       So, join us to learn this wonderful craft from a Ukrainian artist with more than 15 years in the field. You can see some of my work on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/olga.dovgopola  or Instagram (Olga Dovg).

    Olga's passion about pysanky is easy to see. She is a very encouraging teacher. She wants her students to try their own style while learning how to correctly paint and dye their eggs. Highly recommended!

    Olichka, very professional, very patient, creative and help everyone.

  • Ethan Flatten

    Olga is a true artist and it was amazing to watch her work and have her guide the class in developing and systemic approach to this art. Her understanding of the history, symbolism, traditional motifs and designs made the class especially informative. But her artistic talent also brought an element of whimsey and creativity to the process that engaged everyone in the class. No matter what your experience level, or interest level, everybody left with a smile on their face.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to start by educating students on the equipment they will be using for the day. I explain the history and the symbols that are used in traditional pysanka art. I will demonstrate a couple of introductory techniques and let everyone start on their egg. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold an artist master's degree from the Kiev Technical Institute of Arts in Kyiv, Ukraine. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

When I came to America I discovered a lot of interest in my craft, so I started offering classes.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoy participating in Ukrainian Heritage festival, an annual event open to all people where we celebrate our heritage and display our art. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would start by asking the student what their expectations are, and then develop a plan to get started. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

They should ask themselves:

1."What am I hoping to accomplish in my learning excperience?"
2. "How much time am I willing to spend learning a new craft?"
3. "How do you like to learn: in a group or individually?"
