Rosemaling and Art Coloring in Designs

Colouring in can be very relaxing and a way to engage with art in a non-threatening way. Particularly for those who might think they aren't artistic. My Rosemaling colouring in designs allow you to familiarise yourself with the forms and begin to understand this art. Build your confidence in drawing with this lovely Norwegian folk art.

How to Design your own Artwork – Week #1 Design Challenge

There are a variety of elements used in every artistic design or piece. Principles applied to the elements bring them together in an eye-pleasing cohesive unit. Knowing this can make the difference between being able to produce an attractive or disjointed piece. A design challenge can improve your skill level, inspire you to extend yourself, and give you confidence in your designing skills. My focus is on traditional art but this challenge could apply to any artistic pursuit.
