Paint a Mini Blanket Chest
Description- This class will learn about graphics typically used by early PA German craftsmen and apply them to a mini blanket chest.  Christian Selzer worked in Dauphin County creating painted chests that today are highly prized by collectors.  This class will paint tulips in a pot on each of two white panels in the manner of Selzer in the spirit of Dutch folk art exuberance.

Bio: Jim King has a B.A. in art from Goshen College, Goshen, Ind. He began studying vinegar painting in the 1980s when he was inspired by grain painting antiques he was collecting. He purchased blanket chests in disrepair at auctions and flea markets and then restored them and applied vinegar painted surfaces. He had difficulty finding smaller chests and started having Old Order cabinetmakers copy his antiques which he then grain painted using a variety of traditional techniques.
