What you can expect

Create a masterpiece to cherish forever during a one-of-a-kind painting master class! Channel your inner artist and learn about the lineage of Russian folk art during this unforgettable hands-on experience in the heart of St. Petersburg's administrative district.

Following convenient hotel pickup (*if relevant option ordered), venture to an art-boutique in the bustling Vasilyevsky Island region of St. Petersburg. Inside the well-lit workshop, meet your instructor—an artist who possesses a wealth of knowledge about the production of traditional matryoshka nesting dolls.

This is your chance to learn all about the art of matryoshka, which means “little maiden,” came about during a folk-art movement of the late 19th century. See countless examples of matryoshkas fashioned to resemble fairy-tale characters. Then, it's time to roll up your sleeves and get to work, using acrylic paints and an assortment of decorations to bring your vision to fruition.

Throughout the art class a translation is provided so you can fully benefit from the expertise of your artist-instructor. Let your creative juices flow, and then stand back to admire your efforts. Remember to allow your complete nesting dolls to dry before nesting them inside of each other to transport them back to your hotel (*if relevant option ordered)!
