I’m so excited to introduce this new adventure, Studio Eriksdotter Paint Along!

If you’ve never heard of a paint along before it’s when a group of the loveliest people (you) get together online and paint the same painting over a set amount of time.

During each community paint along we’ll be painting a portrait of the same animal. It might be a dog or a cat, and each week I’ll share simple steps towards a finished painting. This paint along is intended to be fun and easy with all participants answering questions and supporting each other.

How Studio Eriksdotter Paint Along Works

Who

These paint alongs are best suited for anyone who would be interested in beginner art classes, new crafting projects, paint by numbers or the ‘sip and paint’ evening events. All are welcome. You sign up by purchasing the Paint Along class you want to take to receive the weekly emails. You can work at your own pace or join us live when we kick off Week 1.

What

We’ll be painting our first pet starting February 1, 2022 and the downloadable ready-made-sketch will be available for purchase that date. You’ll also receive the supply list and instructions. You can paint at your own pace and decide on your own size and colors, but if you’d like a chance to win Studio Credit for painting classes or other gifts, you’ll need to share photos of the canvas size or larger that we’re painting during the Paint Along. My goal is to offer several Paint Alongs in 2022.

Where

Everything is online. After you sign up for the Paint Along class and we start, you’ll receive steps via weekly emails and in the private Studio Eriksdotter Paint Along Facebook group. I’ll also share updates via blog posts and Instagram so if you have any questions you can post them there and in the FB group. I’ll do weekly live Q&As via Instagram on Wednesdays at 8pm ET for the duration of the paint along. All to help explain what we plan to accomplish, helpful tips etc and for the community of paint along participants to jump in and answer as well.

When

February 1 – March 15, 2022

Why

Painting for fun can bring us so much joy and fulfillment not just while we paint but also be surrounded with proof that we actually finished a painting we can be proud of. I was truly reminded of that recently when I received feedback form a past ‘cocktails & canvases’ never-painted-before student who said “Every time I see my painting I’m blown away that I did that. I’m filled with so much joy and pride. I want to feel that again.” Painting together with a whole community is really inspiring! This is the creative gift that keeps on giving.

 

How to Buy

The investment for each Paint Along will be $147 but the first 9 who sign up will receive my special launch price at $99. Just fill in your information below and you’ll receive the special secret price. You’ll receive a note when your purchase goes through, and I’ll send you an email with more information in the coming weeks.

Can I give this as a holiday gift?

Yes! This fun and easy paint along is the perfect holiday gift to give to that creative friend or family member. Giving an experience that results in a finished painting is such a lovely holiday gift that keeps on giving.

To give this as a gift, check the “Is this a gift?” when you sign up below. You can either send the gift via email directly after signing up via the pop-up window or later. The recipient will receive an email with a link to redeem their gifted Studio Eriksdotter Paint Along class. If you don’t want the recipient to receive an email right away, you can log into to your Dashboard, click ‘gifts’ and copy the Gift URL to share at a later date (i.e. handwritten in a card), or send out the email.
