Past 2020 Rosemaling Classes

The year 2020 started out so promising, however the arrival of Covid-19 changed everything.

 

A variety of rosemaling classes were scheduled to take place throughout the U.S. To provide an idea of what a typical rosemaling year looks like, here's the list of classes that were supposed to have happened.*

*Some of the in-class offererings later in the year took place at North House Folk School, Burnsville Community Ed, and Richfield Community Ed.

Wet Paint

Telemark - Julie Anderson

All levels welcome.

Rosemaling evolved in the various districts of Norway from 1750 – 1850.  Telemark produced the largest number of painters, who painted scrolls and fanciful flowers.  In this class we will focus on scrolls in Rosemaling and take it to the next level with cross over scrolls.  During class students will paint a Telemark design with overlapping scrolls and discuss design, scroll structure, flower placement, and complimentary borders.  We will also do some glazing techniques used in borders.  Everyone is welcome, but you will find it beneficial if you have taken the Rosemaling: Brush Techniques class or other painting class where you learned basic brush strokes.  Skilled painters can paint their own design in any style of Rosemaling, with assistance from the instructor as needed. If you have ever wanted to paint Telemark Rosemaling or develop your scroll skills further, this is the class for you.  Painting will be done with acrylic paint.

Rosemaling Color Mixing - Jan Norsetter, VGM

All levels welcome.

Tuition

  • $115.00 Members

  • $135.00 Non-members

Who needs color charts? Proofing colors before painting a project can improve the color balance! Simplifying your palette can also improve color balance. In this class we will make color charts to keep track of our mixes and we’ll do all of this without dirtying a brush. Color mixing is a good time to practice wielding a palette knife. There are lots of oil colors out there. It can be expensive to buy them all and a bit of a pain to keep track of them. We’ll create some limited palettes and record them for reference for your rosemaling projects. We’ll also explore some examples of rosemaling with limited palettes from the Vesterheim collection. There is a $20 palette fee to cover the cost of the paints for the class.

We will use egg tempera paints with natural earth powdered pigments, grinding and mixing them ourselves. We will also prime our own burlap canvases. All materials are water soluble and non-toxic. No solvents will be used. The old bonads painters used cut-out figures to paint people and animals. We will use cut-outs as well to create our own folk-like tapestry. Old museum designs will be provided, or you can create your own story. There is a materials fee, payable to the instructor.

Tuition

  • $270.00 Members

  • $320.00 Non-members

In this class we will explore the elegant style of transparent Telemark as exemplified by the paintings of Thomas Luraas, Bjorn Bjaalid, and their contemporaries. In this early nineteenth-century style of Telemark, linework is prominent and dances across the painting like calligraphy. Although red or dark backgrounds were commonly used, the transparent technique is especially beautiful on a light background. There is little shading on the scrolls as the parallel veins or nerve lines, with fine details and end knobs, take the place of shading. Louise will emphasize the fanciful flowers, which feature intricate interior contours of lines and form elegant borders on cupboards, beams, and beds. For reference, Louise will share many photos taken in Telemark on the 2016 Vesterheim Folk Art Tour. We will use ideas from these photos on a 16-inch plate with two borders, as well as on practice boards or wood of your choice.
