The class project will be a 20-inch Nordic plate, using oil paint as a medium. Teresa will teach you design, paint mixing, stroke work, and painting techniques. For those painters who find a large plate intimidating, this class is for you! Teresa will demonstrate and also work individually with each of you to make sure you gain as much as possible.


Level of Instruction:

Advanced beginner to advanced. Rosemaling and painting experience required. Students should have knowledge of rosemaling strokes and linework and be comfortable working with oils paints.
