Dala Folkart painting class!
One of the ”highlights” during this summer was a really special experience! Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum from Decorah, IOWA, in USA, took a trip to Sweden during their Folk Art Tour 2018. One of their goals was to see, studying and to practicing Dala Folkart painting here in Dalarna. Thanks to my ”mail friend” the lovely and skilled Decorative painter Sandy from Chicago who suggested Darlene the nice Education Specialist at Vesterheim, to plan for this trip, I and the second instructor Kia Lahr had the opportunity to take care of an interested and enthusiastic group of 24 students for two days at Lundgrens Culture House in my village. And of course it also was special for us to meet the nice Tour Guide Diane Edwards , painting teacher and author of books about Swedish Folkart. After to have met so much creativity among this nice and skilled students, Kia´s and my heart is still full of precious memories! And…. that means a lot!
