Basics of Rosemaling

Online Class

Mondays, Sept 12-Oct 10  

Vesterheim Folk School

Decorah, Iowa

Have you heard the saying you have to learn to walk before you can run? That thought is the same for rosemaling. Before you paint, you can learn a few things to help you on your rosemaling journey. Join others for five evenings of learning some basic, yet helpful, concepts. This class is a mixture of discussion and hands-on experiences to reinforce the learning.

Topic will include:

  • Styles of rosemaling: who knew there were so many?

  • Woodenware: what to look for, how to prepare it, how to background.

  • Oils vs Acrylics: pros and cons, brands, quality (artist grade vs student/craft grade).

  • Brushes: what type is good for rosemaling, how to hold them, how to care for them.

  • Basic Paint Palettes, how to mix
