Painting Challenge: Holiday Art

December is a month with many holiday celebrations:  Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Boxing Day, Bodhi Day, Pancha Ganapati, Omisoka, New Year’s Eve.  So it should be no surprise that our next challenge is to…

Paint holiday art. 

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #holidayart

Deadline December 2, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

For a list of holiday art ideas:  click here.  I collected a long list of free tutorials for holidays, great for cards or gifts.

What is the prize?   

This week’s prize is sponsored by Kristy Rice.    She is one of the most joyful people I know.   If you haven’t watched any of her YouTube tutorials, I encourage you to put that high on your priority watch list!  She is simply joyful, and it comes through with her art. She is so encouraging:  Kristy Rice YouTube channel.
Three random winners, yes THREE, will receive her latest book:  Mixed-Media Adventures with Kristy Rice.
With this special twist on the reverse coloring book, enjoy a new way to relax, express your creative self, and add joy to your life. Plus, you’ll have dozens of pages to keep or give as beautiful mixed-media creations! On these pages of high-quality watercolor paper, the color is already waiting; now handle the fun part of making the lines . . . with pens, metallic markers, collage bits, paints, or anything else that inspires you. Throughout, Kristy Rice offers you thoughtful ideas and prompts to meet your every creative whim, whether you’re in the mood to improve some art techniques or just to relax. The pages are gum-bound for clean removal. With two copies of each painting, the book vanquishes the fear of “messing up this painting I love”—you always have another version, so you can try again. Let this multimedia adventure bring you hours of enjoyment and creative play. Also includes ready-to-embellish bonus bookmarks and wish cards.
