Spring Art Lesson: Pysanky Egg Activity


This spring art lesson focuses on Pysanky eggs as inspiration for a one-day drawing activity in elementary through high school art.


Spring is here, it’s time to celebrate it in your art class with a spring art project. This art lesson focuses on the traditional art process of Pysanky egg dying, translating that into a quick one-day drawing activity. Students use lines and shapes to decorate an egg template using red and blue markers, for young elementary students, or a selected color scheme, for upper elementary through high school art students.
This pack includes everything you need to teach two variations of the Pysanky egg drawing project. 2 demo videos, 2 PowerPoint presentations, 2 project guides, and 2 activities are included to gear this project to younger or older students.

This product was created in collaboration with my amazing, wonderful mother, Anne Ward. She is a retired elementary art teacher of over 30 years. She has a wealth of knowledge in the art education field and still teaches private lessons, summer sessions, and acts as a resource for her former school county. My mom is the reason I became an art educator and now I am so excited to team up with her so she can help inspire other art teachers!
