Kristina Jurick

Originally trained in the hotel business, Kristina fell in love with watercolor when she was studiying with Bernice Tindal at the Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate in Toronto/ Canada . After 3 years she returned to Germany where she was employed with several hotels. But the love for art soon took over. After taking further workshops with Robert Wade, Tony Van Hasselt and Brian Ateyo she started to teach her own classes. Beside the wide range of private classes which Kristina is teaching in Germany, she is a tutor at several summer academys in Germany and leading watercolor workshops to Italy, France, USA and Marokko.

She had articles published with the „Palette & Zeichenstift“ Magazine and was futured in „100 ways to paint landscapes“ by International Artist. Also her paintings have been chosen for "The best of waterclor Splash 14/15/16" Her light filled paintings have been exhibited in Germany, Epypt, Ireland, USA and Marokko and are found in art collections in many other countries. In 2014 she was invited to Brasil for the 4th international watercolor Symposium in Paraty.

Now for the 4th year in Riad Sahara Nour, Kristina is passing on her watercolor and sketching experience to eager students of all levels.
With several demonstrations Kristina will show how to approach the chosen subject. Than she is helping the students along with their own work, so everyone can grow from what level they are at. Her competent and empathic teaching makes it easy and fun to learn from her.

Join in for a week of inspiration and learning!
