Students learn the art of Pysanky • Edwardsville

Passing on the Art of Pysanky in Edwardsville - 03/30/2013

On Saturday, March 30, 2013, the Sunday School Students of St. John the Baptist Oethodox Church, Edwardsville, along with guests, were introduced to the art of Pysanky by long-time Pysanky artist, Eugene Gingo. The youth learned how to use the kistka to apply melted wax onto their eggs, dye their eggs with various colors, and finally remove the contents of the egg, resulting in a finished Pysanky for the Great Feast. Many thanks to Eugene Gingo for his time and effort to pass this art on to a new generation of Pysanky Artists, and thanks to the students and guests who spent a beautiful morning at Repella Hall.
