Following the workshop on pattern making done with students from Tone Haga’s Kunst class – Ål kulturskule –  we continued working on ornaments for the new Community House. This time we took inspiration from the beautiful paintings and carvings that filled doors, windows and lintels in the old stabburs. The illustrations would tell the story of how the valley was inhabited, the owners of the stabburs and their daily activities.

The students had been working on sketches for illustrations that would go on windows which will be used in the new Stabburgueiro : Community House. They were asked to represent current activities that happen in Leveld. Drawings of tractors representing the farms, skiers, hunters, volleyball players and local fauna were the most popular illustrations made by the children. Tone collected old windows from her own farm and with special glass paint the children (and a parent) transferred the drawings to the beautiful old windows.

At the end all parents, children, and a special guest Ivar Papadopolous Samuelsen, gathered in the Kunstnartun for a talk on the project and on the work done with Tone over the last academic year.
