Rockland — Farnsworth Art Museum will host a six-class intermediate watercolor workshop taught by artist Erica Qualey Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 19 at the museum’s Gamble Education Center, corner of Union and Grace streets. There will not be a class on Oct. 10.

This class is designed for those who have some basic experience with watercolor painting and would like to bring their skills to a higher level. Participants will go over techniques used to create luminous watercolors that achieve atmosphere, unity and balance. Weekly demonstrations and discussions will address different challenges regarding composition, color and value manipulation, texture and the decisions artists must make to achieve what they are looking for.

Participants will have plenty of time during class to paint on their own, receive individual feedback and leave class with new skills to enhance their future work. All participating students should review the suggested materials list and will be expected to bring their materials to the first class, along with photos and/or sketches that they are interested in painting.

Qualey is a local artist and illustrator who has exhibited in Maine and New Hampshire and is represented in private collections throughout the country. Examples of her work may be viewed at

Fee is $234, $198 for Farnsworth members. For more information or to register, visit
