Eric Wiegardt

Painterly Watercolor

June 7-12, 2020 (Four Teaching Days)

It is recommended that the student have minimal previous experience. There will be ample time for students to try the concepts presented in a safe environment. Eric will do a completed painting demonstration daily. Subject matter may include land, marine, and streetscapes, florals and interiors.
