If you have already tackled the Introduction to Basic Stroke Work of Rosemaling class with Lise, we welcome you back with fun sessions to continue your journey and learn basic stroke work with a new pattern and project! Join us for more S and C scroll painting, and learn how to prepare your surface, apply a base coat, and transfer a pattern. Keep on dipping your brush in the paint and toe in the waters with other rosemalers. Develop your technique further and meet new friends. The class will include demonstrations and plenty of hands-on practice. Students will be provided with all the supplies and materials needed to practice strokes and complete a project on a wooden mitten, including brushes, sandpaper, paints, medium, transfer paper, a stylus, and a palette knife. The class will be taught using acrylic paint.

The listed class time includes three Zoom sessions (Saturday 9:00-10:30 AM & 1:30-3:30 pm CT, Sunday 10:00-11:30 AM CT) as well as time on your own, spent working on the stroke work and class project.
