Saturday, February 8, 2020
9:00 am - 5:00 PM

Come learn the basics of Swedish folk painting. Called Dalmalning, this type of folkart originated in Sweden during the middle to late 1800s. You will learn about the history and different styles of Dalmalning and then learn the components of the most common form, "the Kurbit". We will spend the remainder of the day painting our own Dalmalning project in acrylic paints. All materials for the project including paints, brushes, and mediums are included in the materials fee.

Students should wear clothes suitable for painting and bring pen and paper for note taking and a small jar.
