Are you interested in learning about Swedish Folk Art? In this class we will explore the folk painting styles of northern & southern Sweden commonly called dalmalning & bonadsmaling. There are many regional styles, of which we will discuss their similarities and differences based on origins, cultural significance and materials used back in the 17th & 18th centuries. We will then mix our own paints to complete an individual project, based on the styles we have just learned.
All materials for this class will be provided. The student should wear clothing suitable to paint in and bring a notepad for taking notes and for planning their project.
