Ukrainian Folk Tales and Craft

For Students in Kindergarten through Second Grade. Do you like stories about animals? Ukrainian folk tales and fairy tales often use animals to show us how we can succeed with the challenges life brings us and encourage us to never give up! Join us as we read Sirko, retold and illustrated by Olha Tkachenkoa and create a piece of Ukrainian art. Registration is required.

Sunflower Embossing

For Students in Sixth through Twelfth Grade. Sunflowers are a Ukrainian symbol of peace and a national symbol of the country of Ukraine. Tooling and embossing are types of metal art perfect for beginning to proficient artists. Creating raised and depressed surfaces is embossing. Create a sunflower by embossing a sunflower design on metal. After an image is indented onto the copper sheet, it’s painted with black paint. Once the paint dries, students rub the surface with a plastic scouring pad. This only removes paint from the higher areas of the image and gives the metal sheet a deeper and more textured look. Registration is required
