Drawing & Painting

Rosemaling Workshop for beginning to advanced students

Instructor: Judy Kjenstad
April 11th - 13th, 2014

Students are encouraged to bring painting and design problems to be solved. Morning and afternoon demonstrations using transparent techniques will show how designs are built in both Telemark and Hallingdal style to help students with their design. The instructor will help every student and meet them at their own level of ability. Bring pieces which are partly finished or started, or bring potential design ideas or light colored painted cardboard. Prepared cardboards in off white will be available for purchase from the instructor for $1 to $2. All abilities are welcome but some painting experience is recommended.

All demonstrations will be done using round brushes and oil paints. The instructor has painted with and taught using acrylics many times, and will be able to help students in that medium.  Students who use acrylics but wish to try oil paints, may use the instructor’s supplies for a $5.00 fee payable to the instructor.  Request a materials list upon enrollment.

Instructor Judy Kjenstad took her first rosemaling course in 1975 and earned a gold medal in rosemaling in 1981 from Vesterheim, The Norwegian American Museum. Since then she has expanded her repertoire to include Swedish, German and Dutch decorative painting as well as faux finishing. These skills led to large public and private commissions around the Midwest including The Hotel Pattee in Perry, Iowa; The Black Forest Inn and Ingebretsen's in Minneapolis; and the Norway Pavilion at Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida.  Kjenstad earned a bachelor of Science degree in design from the University of Minnesota in 1990 and has taught courses around the region and the country.
