Rosemaling: Os Style

Course Overview

Rosemaling means "rose painting" in Norwegian, and is done in many styles reflective of specific regions in Norway. The Os region in western coastal Norway is known for its fanciful flowers and bright colors, making it quite different from many of the other styles of rosemaling. In this course you'll study and practice basic techniques of this traditional decorative painting style. Plenty of one-on-one instruction is provided.  Students interested in building a solid base of skills are encouraged to register for the optional fourth day of instruction for $50 (please sign up in advance by calling us at (218) 387-9762). Some rosemaling experience recommended: see Telemark or Valdres courses for beginning levels.
