In Switzerland the traditional Appenzel small landscape paintings illustrate events from daily life. From the festive drive up to summer pasture to winter games in the snow, the life of the peoples of this beautiful area of Switzerland are faithfully recorded in folk art painting. Stylized flowers and multi-colored borders complete the paintings and enhance their wonderful decorative quality. Join Jo Sonja as she teaches and demonstrates her interpretations and discusses the history of this beautiful folk art style.
