Rosemaling: Shaded Telemark Style & Traditions
Rosemaling means "rose painting" in Norwegian, and the Telemark region in southeastern Norway is known for the classic look of its painting with asymmetrical scrolls and varied placement of leaves and flowers. In this course you'll study and practice basic techniques of this traditional decorative painting style. Students will begin with a simple project such as a Christmas ornament and move on to a larger project, such as a plate or other woodenware item. Plenty of one-on-one instruction is provided.
