Vesterheim has arrived in Massachusetts! We will work on the basics of rosemaling, including the history, the strokes, and how to paint simple scrolls and flowers. This is a class without pressure to constantly practice. This class will focus on historical usage of paint in reference to the painting of the period. We will be painting in the Telemark tradition inspired by Sigmund Aarseth on a 12-inch Nordic edge plate. The class projects will employ a progression of shapes and surfaces creating more of a challenge for the painter.
Linda Miller has taught rosemaling at Fletcher Farm in Vermont, John Campbell School in North Carolina, several different lodges on the east coast, and adult education classes in her area.
