Eileen Halverson will be demonstrating the Norwegian folk art of rosemaling (decorative painting) in the second floor hallway of the Old Courthouse Museum on Tuesday, December 19th from 1-4 p.m. Stop in any time during the afternoon for a demonstration and to ask questions about learning it yourself!

Throughout the upper-Midwest, Norwegian immigrants brought this style of painting with them as a decoration on trunks and household items. The colors are bold, designs elaborate, and items became true works of art. Free admission.
