Saturday, November 9th 1:30–4:30pm

FEE: $35 (includes 1 ornament and pattern for both pants and skirt)

Class Topics: Color theory on shading and highlighting, decorative painting techniques of floating using side loading and shading and highlighting using double loading and dry brushing

Depending on the country, these folks have different names.  What they all have in common, is the stories and they are fun to paint.  In this class you will learn how to create shading and do side loading and double loading brush technique.  For those of you who don’t want to paint faces, I will have an option for a male with his hat over his eyes.  Beginning and continuing students are welcome as there will be a  variety of skill levels presented.  Skilled painters can create embellish in their own way, obtaining assistance from the instructor as needed. Painting will be done with acrylic paint and ornament should be painted with a coat of acrylic paint before class.  Pre-based ornaments will be available for purchase.

We will be in touch via email with registered students regarding materials list and additional class details in the days leading up to the class.

julieheadshotAbout the instructor:

I have been decorative painting and teaching painting for many years, and recently taught at Vesterheim in Decorah, Iowa.  While I paint and teach many styles of decorative painting, I focus on art inspired by work done in Norway (Rosemaling), Sweden (Dalamalning/Kurbits) and Germany (Bauernmalerei) and have studied with American, Norwegian and Swedish painters who paint these and other decorative styles.  Class will be structured to teach techniques and designs.

Upcoming Julie Anderson classes at Wet Paint: Rosemaling Goats, Rosemaling Holiday Cards or Ornaments
