To complete the submission for Pin #1: 1 elective selected from the list provided in the SON Cultural Skill Program information should be completed including photos and unit evaluation.

A list of painting supplies is included in this registration form. You may purchase the items locally or purchase from me. Since you may have some of the items, you may purchase only those items that you do not have. Lois will be painting with acrylics, but she is an experienced oil painter which allows you to select the kind of paint that you wish to use and she can assist as needed. If you already have paint and supplies, you may use them for the class.

Your instructor is Lois Mueller. She has been rosemaling since 1977 and teaching since 1979. She began teaching at the Technical College in Appleton, WI and now does travel teaching throughout the USA plus a trip to Taiwan and a couple to Canada. In November 2020, she taught her first Zoom class for the Illinois Norsk Rosemalers Assoc. Lois received the Gold Medal from Vesterheim in Decorah, IA in 1998. Since that time she has written 9 rosemaling instruction books. In 2016, she was part of a group that created a new organization called, Rosemaling Coast to Coast. The reason for the organization was to have a way of sponsoring a rosemaling convention.
