Rosemaling is a decorative folk art painting of Norway. This decorative folk art class is open to beginners and for those who want to advance their skills. Basic brush strokes and combinations will be taught.

We will study the work of Ola Olson Rishovd. Ola was a painter in the Hallingdal province. In his paintings, you can see he was influenced by the baroque floral, typical of the Hallingdal region. However, in his painting travels, he ventured over the mountains and you can see touches of Telemark and Numendal in his florals.

Both Acrylic and Oil painters are welcome. Cost includes project, paints, and handouts.

Suggested brushes to bring are a good round brush size #2 and #4 and good liners. I will bring along some brushes for purchase.

The six consecutive Tuesday classes will be taught by Carol Bender:

$100 per person for up to 6 sessions on the above-listed dates (minimum of 5 needed)

Continue developing glass skills while creating your own art pieces. Provide your own glass or purchase from available supply.

Chestnut’s Glass Class Teacher Scott Hebbring will be monitoring these Open Studio sessions. Some experience is recommended, as this is not an instructional course. Scott is a great resource, and he is there to assist participants as they work on their own projects. Complete unfinished projects or start new ones. Scott has project ‘ideas’ students can probably do in one night if they choose. Some tools and a grinder will be provided.

Participants need to obtain their own supplies. Once registered, you may attend as few or as many of these 3-hour sessions as you want. Bring to your first session your tools and glass (some glass available for purchase).
