Folk Art Painting Classes Singapore
Decorative Art is traditionally known as a typically American art-form that began in the 18th century New England. The art-form was brought over by immigrants from Europe. In particular, the art was extensively practiced by German immigrants in Pennsylvania.
Wood, glass, and fabric are some of the common surfaces used to paint on for Contemporary decorative painting. Frequently, acrylic paint is the medium used for decorative painting because it dries faster than oil.
The art is all about using various brush strokes and loading techniques which are simple to learn but relatively harder to master.
Learn Brush Stroke Work and Brush Loading
Decorative Art classes at the Heartroom Gallery teaches you the basic methods of brush loading and the stroke work that is used to achieve the beautiful pieces. Through practice, students can then move on to the intermediate and advanced techniques.
European Styles of Decorative Painting
Decorative painting in Europe goes way back and some of the styles although similar developed independently of each other. Some of these styles of Folk Art Painting include the Hindeloopen and Rosemaling styles of painting. The Hindeloopen style originates from the Netherlands while the Rosemaling style originates from Norway. Advanced students at our classes can even paint furniture using their skills to create a one-of-a-kind art piece for your home.
The Heartroom Gallery is probably the only studio in Singapore that teaches the unique and beautiful Russian Floral style of Tole Art. The Russian Floral style is also known as the Zhostovo style of Decorative Painting. This style of Decorative Painting originates from Russia and requires advanced brush stroke techniques and loading of paint.
Folk Art Classes
Classes at the Heartroom Gallery start from basic stroke work and brush loading. Classes continue with practice by painting on pieces requiring increasing skill level. Students can choose any patterns they prefer.
Our students describe this form of art as therapeutic and addictive. Best of all, many of the pieces they paint are not just for the wall but are also functional pieces ranging from boxes to pieces of furniture.
