Intro to Basic Strokes - Hallingdal Style

Online Class

January 7-8, 2023

Vesterheim Folk School

Decorah, Iowa

If you’ve ever thought about trying rosemaling, here’s a great opportunity to take the brush in hand! Rosemaling is the wonderful folk art of Norway that is based on the flowing scrolls and flowers that are made up of "C" and "S" strokes. This class introduces students to these basic strokes that are the foundation of rosemaling, as well as the detailed line work that completes a rosemaling project. The class will include demonstrations and plenty of hands-on practice. 

Students will be provided with all the supplies and materials needed to practice strokes and complete a project on board, including brushes, paints, medium, boards, and a palette knife. The class will be taught using acrylic paint.

Master Class - Sevat Uppheim

Online Class

January 19-20, 2023

Nordic Canvas Folk Art Studio

Minnesota

Nils Ellingsgard wrote in Rosemaling i Hallingdal, Sevat Uppheim (1809-1889) would have probably been known as one of the most significant and prominent Hallingdal rosemalers if he had painted longer than 10 years. Uppheim is connected to the Sata family of Hallingdal painters.

Together we will explore the work of Sevat Uppheim through looking at pictures of his known works, sketching elements of his style, working out his colors, doing a bit of painting, and marveling at his creative genius and extraordinary detail work.

Transparent Telemark

Online Class

February 25, 2023

Vesterheim Folk School

Decorah, Iowa

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.

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.
