18 color slides. Apprentice Martin was funded to learn from pysanky artist Kryway Ukrainian egg decorating, including preparing/selecting eggs, drawing design, dyeing, and the meaning of designs. For more information of Kryway and Martin, see S 1644, box 11, folder 28. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000.

Description
Three proof sheets (plus ngatives) with 86 images; 33 color slides. Images taken at Kryway's home, and include Martin and Kryway decorating eggs, as well as examples of finished pysanky eggs. Pysanky (East European egg decration)is created when patterns are drawn on eggs with wax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Apprentice Martin was funded to learn from pysanky artist Kryway Ukrainian egg decorating, including preparing/selecting eggs, drawing design, dyeing, and the meaning of designs. They used both geese and chicken eggs. For more information of Kryway and Martin, see S 1644, box 11, folder 28. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000.
