Dalamalning, Swedish Folk Painting with Carol Bender

Learn the techniques and stylings of dalamalning as you paint a pattern celebrating the Swedish immigrant heritage and fall beauty of western Wisconsin. Swedish folk art painter Carol Bender created a pattern featuring the Sabylund Lutheran Church near Stockholm, Wisconsin. The words across the top are a line from the old Swedish hymn, “How Great Thou Art.” It reads: “Oh Lord, my God! When I in awesome wonder consider all the worlds thy hands have made.” The landscape is filled with warm colors, a Midwestern autumn at its best.

You will be painting with acrylics on a 16” x 20” canvas. All materials, including paints and brushes, are provided.
The class is held in conjunction with Stockholm, Wisconsin’s Women’s Weekend. Your classroom is in a cheery Swedish-style stuga and a lunch of open-face sandwiches is part of the class fee. If you want to stretch your legs during the lunch hour, you are a short distance from downtown Stockholm, where you can enjoy the demonstrations and activities that are part of the weekend.
Class size is limited to 8 people. Sorry, no exceptions.
Class fee is $85 and includes all painting materials and lunch.
Class location is the Samla Rum, N 2089 Spring Street, Stockholm, Wisconsin.
