This week we have started taking care of two new beehives which will be added on the roof and in the patio of our school. Someone, we don’t remember who, had the idea of decorating them. We thought it was a fantastic idea and our art teacher accepted to help us.
Eco-friendly , non toxic water-based but colourful paints were bought to decorate the hives.
Some of us set down to work. As we were painting the hives, one of us started to surf the net in the art room to see if there were other painted beehives somewhere else in the world. We found a treasure: Slovenian beehives 🙂
We didn’t know anything about that unique form of folk art and we were amazed by the colours and the talent of the unknown artists. We also had a look at the map of Europe to locate Slovenia. We realised Slovenia was a neighbouring country of Italy and not far from our partners in Feltre in the Venezian province. We made a mistake there: Feltre is in the Belluno Province ( Thank you, Marco, for your comment)
Have you ever seen those beehives in Slovenia, Italian team?
