The class project will be a 20-inch Nordic plate, using oil paint as a medium. Master instructor Teresa will teach you design, paint mixing, stroke work, and painting techniques. For those painters who find a large plate intimidating, this class is for you! Teresa will demonstrate and also work individually with each of you to make sure you gain as much as possible.
Teresa McCue Thompson is fiercely proud of her Nordic heritage and inspired by the old Norwegian master painters. Her work over the last 30 years has been a blend of instruction at Vesterheim, private study in Norway, and professional practice. Her dedication as a rosemaling artist has enabled her to help preserve the integrity of this highly stylized art form. In 2014 she was awarded a Vesterheim Gold Medal.
