Custom One on One Watercolor Experience with Kristy

T H E   S T O R Y

Kristy Rice has been painting since she was 6 and teaching her irresistible #artforjoysake style of watercolor for over a decade. Kristy believes in the journey, not just the destination. Kristy believes in fear crushing, joy inducing watercolor painting! Her breezy, forget the rules style of teaching puts even the biggest skeptic at ease almost instantly.

Over the last 8 months, Kristy began offering private one on one instruction to those looking to “level up” their art making. Kristy has now developed a private instruction structure that keeps your costs down, yay!

Wondering if private instruction is for you?

  • Do you crave a better understanding of the watercolor techniques Kristy teaches? Feeling like you might be missing something as you try them out yourself?
  • Have you been painting for a few years but feel like not much “progress” is being made?
  • Have you never picked up a brush but feel like watercolor could be your thing?
  • Are you looking to make a career from your art but not sure what to do next?
  • Are you struggling to find your own style?

T H E  D E T A I L S

  • The hourly price includes a 10 minute jump start call to determine the best use of our time together.
  • Instruction will be done live.
  • At the end of the session, Kristy will offer 2 “homework” suggestions designed to continue your journey.

    S U P P L I E S  N E E D E D ?

    Kristy will work with whatever supplies you love the most. She’ll use watercolors and brushes as close as possible to what you will be using!

    W H A T   H A P P E N S   N E X T

    • If you’ve purchased this experience for yourself, we will reach out to schedule your 10 minute jump start phone call!
    • If you’ve purchased as a gift, we will email a printable gift note to wrap up!

        Spirited Watercolor LIVE Zoom Workshop with Kristy Rice

        This is your time to make ART FOR JOY’S SAKE! 

        You’ve dabbled, maybe? Love watercolor but just don’t feel connected? Perhaps you haven’t picked up a brush in years? Or maybe you are searching for that something? That joy you haven’t found anywhere else is here. That joy comes alive in you when color explodes on a wet page. There is no feeling like it, especially when you made it happen.

        Looking to take your watercolor journey to the next level? Have you always wanted to learn a more freeing style of watercolor where the search for perfection doesn’t seem to matter as much? Do you feel like your paintings are heavy, overworked a bit maybe? Do you want to feel light and uplifted when painting?

        S C H E D U L E
        The entire workshop will be recorded so you do not have to be live each night to enjoy the content.

        First you need to know this. It’s important.
        I feel most alive when teaching live and want to be sure we end each night in a place that make sense. Ending on time is never a priority for me so if we go over, we go over. If someone wants a technique demonstrated a second time but time is running out, I will indeed demo it again. I will always take just one more question. I will never end a class on time to the detriment of its students. XO

        2 hours x 2 nights = 4 hours of instruction
        Plus a bonus 1 hour Q & A on night 3!

        Explore techniques that Kristy relies on most in her painting. Learn to add depth, jovial detail, and luminosity to your paintings in unconventional ways, like Kristy’s POW technique!


        NIGHT ONE – two hours minimum
        (q&a throughout)
        1. Exploration of Kristy’s unique techniques

        NIGHT TWO – two hours minimum (q&a throughout)
        1. Flower paint-a-long
        We will use a reference photo to explore the techniques learned in night one. I will poll class participants to select the flower image to be used.
        We’ll explore a sketch with pencil first technique + a paint only technique for creating our flower composition.
        Step by step you will paint with me. I’ll narrate what pigments I’m using, how much paint is on my brush, how I’m holding the brush. You’ll hear what pitfalls to watch out for and more. I’m with you every moment.

        2. Landscape paint-a-long
        We will use a reference photo to explore the techniques learned in night one. I will demo three different landscape styles based on the geographic locations of you, my dear students!
        We’ll explore a sketch with pencil first technique + a paint only technique for creating our landscape composition.

        NIGHT THREE – one hour minimum
        1. This is your time to initiate any redos or requests. What do I mean? Was there a technique you’d like to see done again? Is there a type of flower you’d just love me to demo quickly? This is your time to get all those requests in! The energy will be high and we will use our last night together to it’s fullest.

        2. I will share a series of suggestions for homework so to speak as you continue your painting journey after the class.

        3. This night will most surely run over on time. I guarantee you we will be feeling like “please don’t let this end”. So plan accordingly!
