Oskar Kjetsaa was an incredibly creative Norwegian rosemaler. He used characteristics of Telemark, Hallingdal, and other rosemaling styles to create a style all his own. In this class we will focus on the characteristics of Oskar’s style, including his use of color and linework, to create a project based on the flowers from one of his paintings. Included in the cost of registration is a complete kit of supplies (valued at $80) that includes a wooden bowl, oil paints, brushes, linseed oil, sandpaper, a palette knife, palette paper, and a treat from Vesterheim.

The listed class time is three live Zoom sessions on Saturday, February 26 (9:30 am-Noon and 3:00-5:00 pm CT) and Sunday, March 6 (2:00-5:00 pm CT).

About the Instructor

Kim Garrett

Kim Garrett

Kim lives in Ely, Minnesota with her husband and 3 cats. She is a retired Nurse Practitioner and Nursing educator. Kim’s family immigrated from Sweden in the early part of the 1900’s and settled in the Chicago area. Kim started rosemaling about 14 years ago, almost by accident. She was scheduled to take a class at a folk school in Minnesota which was cancelled at the last minute, so the school offered her a spot in a Valdres rosemaling class. In that class she found her artistic soul. She has been in love with rosemaling and other Scandinavian folk arts ever since. Kim has been teaching rosemaling and Swedish Dalmalning in the Midwest for about 8 years; more recently she has been teaching on Zoom as well. Kim has studied with many Gold Medal rosemalers in the US and has the opportunity to travel to Norway and Sweden several times to study with expert artists there. She has also had the opportunity to study the works of the old master painters in museums and private collections. She has received two grants to study rosemaling and received multiple ribbons at the Minnesota state Fair. Kim is active in the Wisconsin and Illinois Rosemaling associations and a Board member of the Rosemaling Coast to Coast Rosemaling Association.
