2015-Pysanky USA Retreat-5th Anniversary A Message From Jim "...My arms are tired from the hugs, and I forgot the kiss count! It was great to see my pysanky family, and to add new members. Do you think we will pass 100 attendees next year? If God wills it we will be in the same place, our priest, Father Joe was such a joy to be around. ...I already have started to put things into place for 2015. There are two new classes in plan for next year, and some new teachers! We have a whole year to build a better format and to work on making 2015, one of the best PysankyUSA Retreats to come. I remain your true friend through pysanky -Jim".
This annual retreat promotes Egg Artistry, raising the quality of the art to the highest level. Whether you are struggling with a creative block or don’t even know where to begin, this retreat will work for you. Classes are designed to exercise, stimulate and expand your expression, especially for the 'beginner'. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people, in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment in working with natural eggs, as an art or folk art medium. The Pysanky USA Retreat is and has always been a private retreat. After all student reservations are made, it is closed to the general public. No visitors or walk throughs are admitted.
