Rosemaling Telemark Scrolls taught by Julie Anderson
Multi-Session ClassTuesdays: May, 11, 18, 25, June 1st from 7-8:30pm CT
This is an intermediate class that will also be appropriate for those who took the Beginning Telemark Flowers class. The core of the Telemark design is the scroll and the focus of this class on how to paint, create and most common problems with scrolls.
Rosemaling evolved in the various districts of Norway from 1750 – 1850. Telemark scrolls are the main element in a Telemark design and the flowers are fanciful. In this class we will focus scrolls and how flowers fill in the extra space. During class, students will learn to paint a scroll and flower placement.
Everyone is welcome, but you will find it beneficial if you have taken the Rosemaling: Brush Techniques class or other painting class where you learned basic brush strokes. Skilled painters who want to advance their knowledge scrolls are welcome and will be encouraged to use pieces from the Vesterheim collection or original work to create a design. Assistance from the instructor will be available. Since the class is remote, students can paint with acrylic or oil paint.
4 weeks; topics each week: Telemark Scrolls, scroll construction, most common problems with scrolls, how flowers fit into the design.

I have been decorative painting and teaching painting for many years. 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.
