Step by Step: Watercolor with Erica Qualey

October 20, 2020 @ 3:30 pm 5:30 pm EDT

Tuesdays, October 6, Oct. 20, November 3 and 17 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Zoom

Grab your paint brushes and join our watercolor painting group! We will be painting our way through the winter blues. Via Zoom, Erica will lead you through live, interactive watercolor paint-alongs. She will share lots of tips and techniques to help you grow your watercolor skills.

No experience is necessary. Open to all skill levels. During each session, Erica will provide step-by-step instruction on how to paint each beautiful scene in an easy and approachable way.
Prior to the workshop, you will receive

  • a pdf of the under drawing which you can trace or use as a guide to draw your own
  • a materials list
  • a video showing how to get yourself set up and ready to paint.

This class is designed as an ongoing class throughout the fall and winter. It will meet every other week. Participants are asked to commit to 4 session blocks at a time.
