Family Paint Night with Erica Qualey

July 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Erica Qualey

Grab your paint brushes and kiddos and join us for a fun evening painting party! No experience is necessary, and this class is open to all skill levels. Erica will lead you through a live, interactive watercolor painting demonstration via ZOOM. Prior to the workshop, you’ll receive a PDF file of the under-drawing which you can trace or use as a guide to draw your own, a materials list, as well as a video showing you how to get set up and ready to paint. During the session, Erica will provide step-by-step instruction on how to paint this beautiful scene in an easy and approachable way.

Erica Qualey lives in mid-coast Maine with her husband and two daughters. She is a landscape painter that works primarily in watercolor and watercolor batik. Leaving her hometown in northern Maine, Erica earned a BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. She worked as a graphic designer for several years along with teaching design, drawing, and Adobe programs at a small college in New Hampshire. She has since focused on her personal art, exhibiting throughout New England and is represented in private collections around the United States and Canada. She is a member of the New England Watercolor Society and American Watercolor Society and has been published in the 19th edition of Splash, a yearly publication of 125 watercolor paintings from around the world. She currently teaches workshops at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland and River Arts in Damariscotta, and has had the privilege of teaching at other art associations such as Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine. Erica also enjoys working with kids, sometimes working as a visiting artist in schools and running programs through Skidompha Public Library in Damariscotta.
