2023-02-25 – Transparent Telemark Rosemaling (Online)



Saturday, February 25 (10:00 am-12:30 pm and 3:00-5:00 pm CT)


Patti Goke


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


In this class, we will paint a project using paint with transparent properties. This technique is only one way to achieve the light and airy feel from painting transparently. We will also explore another way of achieving this affect.

Examples of traditional paintings (from prior to 1900) can be seen on the ceilings by Thomas Luraas (1799 - 1886), a painter of prominence in his day from Tinn, Telemark. (Luraas also and played the clarinet – any clarinet players taking the class?)

Let’s have fun together as we meet online to paint transparent Telemark!


A complete kit of materials ($55 value!) including a wooden plate, oil paints, high-quality brushes, and a sweet treat from Vesterheim is included in the cost of registration and will be shipped to your home close to the start of class. Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the United States, you will need to provide your own supplies. Please contact folkartschool@vesterheim.org when you register for more information about what materials are required for this class.
