Watercolour Florals for Mother’s Day – A Virtual Paint and Tea Party

2020-05-10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

A special way to celebrate Mother’s Day at home, drinking tea, and learning how to paint an easy and fun watercolour floral wreath!

We can find ways to be apart together, even during Mother’s Day! This event is designed to help you celebrate Mother’s Day virtually, while sharing an experience with loved ones. Learn how to paint an easy watercolour floral wreath, with step-by-step guidance from watercolour artist and instructor, Andrea Elena. Be sure to get your tea ready too, so you can enjoy this live-streamed event as a virtual, afternoon Tea Party! All skill levels welcome (will be set to a beginner’s pace), and materials are available for order (please see below).
