2024-02-24 Introduction to the Basic Strokes of Rosemaling: Telemark Style (Online)
If you’ve ever thought about trying rosemaling, here’s a great opportunity to take the brush in hand! Rosemaling is the wonderful folk art of Norway that is based on the flowing scrolls and flowers that are made up of "C" and "S" strokes. This class introduces students to these basic strokes that are the foundation of rosemaling, as well as the detailed line work that completes a rosemaling project. The class will include demonstrations and plenty of hands-on practice while students learn the strokes and complete a project on board.
The class will be taught using acrylic paint. If you’ve painted with oil, this would be a good opportunity to explore acrylics. This will be a fun class that will give anyone who is interested in trying rosemaling the opportunity to dip your toe in the water, or actually tip your brush into the paint!
