Matryoshka Nested Doll Painting: Storytelling and Workshop
 

Matryoshka Nested Doll Painting: Storytelling and Workshop

New England Language Center' Art Gallery

December 29, 2018


Sunday, October 21, 2018

Traditional Russian artist and lecturer Marina Forbes will offer a unique workshop on the rich Russian folk tradition of Matryoshka (wooden nested doll) painting. The workshop is open to adults, teens and families with children 6 and up.

It is a great opportunity for adults and families to work together and learn about Russian crafts and culture. Participants will hear the story of the Matryoshka doll and will learn about her traditional Russian dress and customs. Traditional Russian painting techniques and floral and berry designs are also introduced. The goal is to produce a finished piece of Russian folk art on wood. Students can work on 7-piece, 5-piece, 3-piece or 1-piece matryoshka sets. Throughout the workshop, students will be listening to traditional Russian music, and, during a brief break from the painting, there will be a demonstration of a few steps from a traditional Russian "matryoshka dance."
