Rosemaling requires the skill to create a variety of strokes using brushes and paint. If you have not painted before or want to improve your brush control, this is the class for you. Painting will be done with acrylic paint.
Topics each week: Basic strokes with a round brush and line work compositions
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.
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.
