Virtual Event Virtual Event

February 1 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm


Class #2 Liner Brush Strokes

Learn the basics brush strokes of the beautiful Norwegian decorative painting tradition called Rosemaling. Rosemaling requires the skill to create a variety of strokes using liner brushes and paint. Gaining control with a liner brush takes time and practice, so this class will focus just on the liner brush. If you have not painted before or want to improve your brush control for any type of painting you do, this is the class for you. Painting will be done with acrylic paint.
