EVERETT, WA – Anyone can art! Paint a wonderful wilderness watercolor landscape in an afternoon. On Thursday, Oct. 8, at 4 p.m., Everett Public Library will host a live paint-along program with Kolbie Blume.
Kolbie Blume is an artist and writer with a passion for helping closet creatives say “actually, I can!” Blume is the author of the book “Wilderness Watercolor Landscapes,” which includes 30 step-by-step projects anyone can accomplish. Blume will share her passion for painting and guide participants through a complete project.

No art supplies? No problem. Register for this free program by completing this form or calling 425-257-8000, and let us know if you’d like a paint supply kit. Kits will be made available to participants using the library’s curbside services on Sept. 28. A limited number of kits are available.

Kolbie Blume is an author and artist based in Washington, D.C. She has a passion for calligraphy, hand lettering, and watercolor illustration. Blume also uses her communications expertise to coach artists and creative entrepreneurs on effective social media strategy and content creation. In addition to creating meaningful pieces for her clients, her main goal is to inspire those around her to find their own creative voice—because if she can learn how to art, anyone can.

This program is free and open to the public. It will livestream online using Microsoft Teams technology. You will need a device with internet connectivity, but you do not need a Microsoft account or special software to participate.
