Inner Discovery Through Watercolors with Kris Keys

Program Details

Inner Discovery Through Watercolors

November 4 & 5, 2023


Join watercolor master Kris Keys for a multi-sensory experience of painting flowers that
heal. Kris will guide attendees through painting sessions that harness the therapeutic
power of flowers. Kris calmly imparts beginner-level water coloring techniques, while
having attendees surrender to self-discovery through florals. By sharing the discoveries
of her own journey, Kris cultivates a uniquely relaxing practice that both uncovers and
deepens intrapersonal understandings of creativity, healing, and reflection in order to
improve overall wellness.

Guests will experience two hours consisting of a live watercolor performance, in addition
to instructional painting sessions of the flowers blooming around California. Every
guest will leave with two personal paintings completed through rounds of guided
meditations led by Keys.

Participants can expect:

* Two self-completed floral paintings.
* Live performance demonstration of Kris’ watercolor painting
* Beginner-friendly instructions on how to paint a variety of curated florals.
*Meditative connection between body, spirit, and nature.
* A sampling of herbs and health benefits of flowers

Please note that a portion of this class will be photographed and recorded for educational and promotional purposes. Waivers will be available on site if you are uncomfortable being filmed. 

Kris Keys is known for creating floral-inspired masterpieces during her decade long
career in fashion illustration and textile design. After receiving her BA in Fashion Design
and Development from London College of Fashion, she garnered global attention for
her unique style from artist residencies in Thailand and Tokyo, brand deals with NARS
Cosmetics in London, and a feature on CNN’s Human Factor. The YouTube channel
where she posts watercolor painting tutorials has over 15,000 subscribers where she
paints regularly as a form of meditation.
Attendees of past Inner Discovery experiences say they “loved Kris’ energy and support
throughout the class” and appreciate how “perfect” the series is for beginners.
