Russian Matryoshka Dolls

My daughter recently learned about Russia and the history behind the Russian nesting doll tradition. This lesson was combined with folk art painting techniques. She learned two painting techniques: Creating comma brush strokes and the use of a medicine dropper for painting dots. Alyssa utilized these painting techniques with acrylic paint when creating her symmetrical Russian Matryoshka Doll masterpiece.


  1. Very nice!! My daughter did the matroyshka doll paintings too - love them!

  2. Beautiful! How fun to paint with an eye dropper to make the pattern :)
