This class will be an in-depth study of the Telemark style of rosemaling with an emphasis on design. Students will study different examples of Telemark discussing the elements involved and how a design is composed. Try your hand at creating a design under Nancy's guidance if needed. The class will paint a piece from start to finish, selecting color and technique and finishing with antiquing. 

Bring pieces you would like help creating a design for and painting. There will also be a design for a 18-inch rim plate for those who would like a design to follow.
