June 1 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Samchykivka Art Class by Anna Mykhalchuk 

When: 1.06.2024 at 10.30-1.30

Where: Space2b Social Design, 144 Chapel St, St Kilda VIC

Hosted by Create for Ukraine and Samchykivka Art

Create for Ukraine project unites your inner creativity with your ability to make a meaningful impact on someone’s life far across the globe. Join us for a glimpse into Ukrainian identity and culture through its beautiful tradition of folk painting.

Anna from Samchykivka Art will guide you through a process of creating your own folk motif in a traditional Ukrainian style inspired by flora and fauna, incorporating ancient potent symbols carried through the generations. The uniqueness of the art class is in its creative and non-standard process – you never know what your final work will look like until you make the final brush stroke! The immersion into the creative process will be done in stages, giving you the opportunity to listen to yourself and try to express your feelings and emotions through shape and colour. You will be surprised how different and similar the artworks will be from the participants.

About the artist: Anna Mykhalchuk is a Ukrainian artist living in Hobart since 2022. She is working in a decorative folk-art style called Samchykivka. Her work explores themes of diversity of nature, connections with people, and the ability to see and feel more.

About the art: Samchykivka is a decorative folk-art style from Samchyky village (about 300 kms west of Kyiv) and abounds in vibrant uplifting colour with hidden fauna that entices the imagination. ‘The tradition of decorative painting of the village of Samchyky’ is included in the National list of elements of intangible cultural heritage of Ukraine.

About the charity: Proceeds from the art class will go to supporting Ukrainian refugee families. Part of the proceeds from this workshop will go towards the equipment for online art classes for Ukrainian mothers of children with special needs for a charity initiative ‘Sponsor a Child in Ukraine’ #яспонсор, that helps directly families in Ukraine with children with epilepsy and cerebral palsy.

We are so excited and grateful to have the kind support of Space 2b Social Design for this class! Space 2b is an open, grassroots organization, where newly arrived migrants and refugees and local, community-based designers can come together to exchange knowledge, ideas and skills.

The class is designed for adults with different levels of art practice. Beginner artists are very welcome – we are sure that everyone can create! During the workshop, you will create a sketch of your pencil drawing and learn how to work with acrylics. All materials will be provided, so that you can dive into the creative process.
