- Heritage Education Module 3 Rosemaling Styles
Welcome to Heritage Education Module 3. We are a rosemaling studio. David began rosemaling in the summer of 1975 in oils. He has studied with some of the greatest modern era rosemalers over the years. He has also developed several new looks to these traditional styles. As an artist, it is important to preserve the tradition of rosemaling but also advance those traditions to include new looks and techniques. As Sigmund Aarseth said in 1974, "society is never static, so rosemaling shouldn't be either". New looks need to be developed because that is the true history of rosemaling. Since 1983 David has studied the history of rosemaling through the design periods from Baroque, Rococo through Louis XVI and Empire. Over the years our studio has also developed many acrylic techniques to not only preserve the historical looks but also give new looks to this timeless style of decoration.
Module 3 is presented by David along with his daughter Jessica, a 3rd generation decorative artist and our Japan Heritage Designer, Tamae Inoue. These 3 wonderful and creative artists will take you on a painting journey through historical styles to new version perfect for today's decor. Join us as we advance the beautiful style of rosemaling while also honoring the wonderful tradition of this decorative style.
The module will guide you through various styles of Norwegian and American Rosemaling. The module features 12 video lessons, each lesson about 2 hours showing in depth the how to design, paint and the various techniques used to create each style.
