Treasure Box – and a Surprise! Class ONLINE
Saturday, November 7, 10-1pm MDT
Instructor: Jone Hallmark
Limit: 12 students. Includes class kit + shipping
Using just a few simple pen and brush strokes, learn from Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark how to draw Scandinavian-inspired patterns. The designs are reminiscent of Rosemåling, a type of decorative painting that features scrollwork and floral ornamentation so stylized that the flowers can only be described as fanciful. Traditional pieces are colorful, but Jone likes using white on brown kraft paper and adding color to accent the design. This class is similar to earlier ones Jone has taught at the store, but this time she’s adding decorative initials. What a fun way to personalize something! Or to highlight a favorite word or phrase. You’ll learn to create scrolls, circles, sweeping stems, petals, leaves, and other details by connecting basic “C” and “S” strokes. The flowing designs are easy to make and are useful for decorating pretty much anything, large or small. Jone provides lots of kraft-colored items for you to work with. Take the white pens provided in class home with you. The technique is rather addicting! Absolutely no painting or drawing experience is necessary.

Class Kit Includes: white gel pen, 2 small kraft papier-mâché boxes, kraft paper to practice the designs, flat wooden heart-shaped ornament, linen thread for hanging the ornament, small booklet with designs and instructions. Kits will begin shipping at least 3 weeks before the class date or earlier.
Please bring the following materials:
-Small set of watercolor pencils. Jone uses watercolor pencils instead of standard colored pencils because the soft lead blends well and produces a much richer color with layering.
-Favorite drawing pencil and eraser
-Pencil sharpener to keep points sharp while working
-A small watercolor brush to enhance the colors with a touch of water once the design is drawn.

Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark, who says of herself, “I tend to work in a two-inch square!”, has created her own little world of magical delights. Each tiny wonder – from the cleverest fox or hedgehog to a charming parade of flower-bearing young girls – is handcrafted from paper clay, wire, wood, and other tiny bits and pieces. Her sophisticated yet simple designs show the influence of both her father’s Scandinavian heritage and the intricate painted miniatures she collected when living in Switzerland. Her affinity for using small, ordinary objects comes from her mom, also a graphic designer and artist. She taught Jone that you can make just about anything you want instead of going to a store to buy it. Jone’s creative life started on the floor of her father’s studio, where she sat as a child surrounded by brushes, paints, and a treasure of paper. Her passion for design eventually led to work developing store displays, award-winning lines of decorated papers, and the beloved Bryce and Madeline stickers. One day, after twenty years of licensing her artwork for other people’s products, Jone realized that she needed to get back to basics and simplify. In that moment, her tiny little world was born. Now she spends her time teaching, drawing, painting, and making huge messes on every available flat surface. Visit Jone's website: polkadotponie.blogspot.com
