LEWISTON — The first of today’s two egg decorating workshops. A Maine artist of Ukrainian descent, Sochor learned this ancient spring tradition from her mother. The Pysanka, a decorated egg, has origins among Slavic peoples as far back as 5,000 B.C. and was deeply important in spring rituals. $10 per person (free for Bates students). Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Sponsored by the Bates College Museum of Art. Registration required: Please call 207-786-8212 to register or for more information.
