Ventura County residents interested in learning Scandinavian immigrant folk songs are invited to participate in a workshop at Cal Lutheran University on Friday.
The workshop, the second in a series of three, will be led by Anne Charlotte Harvey, a professor of drama at San Diego State University and a specialist in the culture of Scandinavian immigrants.
Accompanied by a band, Harvey will teach and perform songs in their original languages. She has performed similar workshops throughout the United States, Canada and Sweden.
The Scandinavian Folk Art series is sponsored by the Scandinavian American Cultural and Historical Foundation. The first workshop featured woodcarving and rosemaling, the traditional art of flower painting.
The folk song workshop will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday in the Nelson Room.
The last workshop, to be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9 in Classroom B1 in the university's Art Building, will focus on using flower motifs in tile painting.
Admission for members of the foundation is free. Nonmembers pay $10. For more information, call (805) 492-3089.
