Swedish Folk Painting

Course Overview

Swedish Folk Painting, often referred to as “dalmalning” actually consists of several different painting styles based on region, subject, and artist. In this course we will discuss several of these different styles. Then we’ll practice the basic painting techniques of two of these styles and create our own individualized projects. This course will be taught in acrylics; oil paints are welcome. Students are encouraged to try painting with acrylics even if you usually paint in oils. No painting experience is needed.
