Workshop: Swedish Kurbits with Tina Rawson
Join artist Tina Rawson for a Swedish Kurbits workshop. Kurbits painting is a decorative style of painting that was very popular in Sweden between 1780 and 1870, particularly in Dalarna and southern Norrland. Today, people still use and appreciate Kurbits painting, a popular style that pays homage to our Swedish farmer heritage.
All materials are included in the workshop fee. All you need to bring is your imagination!

ABOUT TINA: Tina Rawson took up the bold decision in 2021, amidst the protracted COVID-19 pandemic, to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a painter.
Studying art in college at the University of Pittsburgh helped prepare her for work as an artist, and travels throughout Europe and across the United States inform her work. Her memories of people and places also provide artistic inspiration. She sees beauty in the everyday and hopes to relay it through bright colors, movement and texture.
Her many exhibits include a recent solo exhibit “Creative Connections: Contemporary Art” at the Newburyport Art Association, a show at Coastal Living Gallery in Little Compton RI, and a museum show at The Wenham Museum in Wenham, MA entitled “My Essentials.” She is a proud member of The Art Queens, The Newburyport Art Association; and a gallery member of the Little Compton Cafe in RI and the Portsmouth Historical Society’s Gift Shop in NH.
Tina works as an artist and educator in Amesbury Massachusetts and visits her native Sweden annually. She owns Start 2 Art, where she teaches young children through adults the joy of making art and kurbits, a Swedish folk art style which she studied in Sweden.
