Frequently Asked Questions

There are 12 topics in the course. See above for detailed week-by-week descriptions. There will be several posts with videos, readings, worksheets, and assignments for each weekly topic's module. Every Friday a new weekly module will be released. Log in to your account to access them in your course library. 

You will have lifetime access to all the course materials. As long as the program exists you will have access to it.  You can log in at anytime from your computer, tablet, or phone and complete the lessons at your own pace. 

Groups will be limited to groups of 12 artists enrolled in the program per cohort. We will meet online via zoom every Wednesday. Morning Cohort will meet from 10:30am-12pm and the Evening Cohort will meet from 6:30-8pm. Once registration closes, we will send a group message with a link to the zoom call and a folder to access recorded videos. The group will discuss the weekly lessons and participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts. It's a great safe space to get honest feedback, accountability, and encouragement from your peers. 

We do not offer complete refunds. We do offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you complete all the modules and attend and engage in all the meetings for the first 4 weeks of the course and are still not satisfied with the program, we will return 2/3 of your full payment or if paying on a plan, we will retain the first installment and cancel the 2 remaining payments. 

Sure! Group coaching has many benefits, but sometimes artists prefer to work one-on-one. Kristin offers strategy sessions and personal retreats. Send a message with an inquiry and we will get back to you with pricing and options.

"Kristin's course was so valuable to my growth as an artist. I really appreciated the website that had each weekly outline and all the information organized. I loved having everything in one place. It was also really cool to be in a group of artists each week online to discuss projects, perspectives and progress. Kristin also brought in some pretty impressive guests that all gave tons of info and even gave valuable feedback based on my project questions. Kristin herself expertly flowed with info each week, which helped me build up the best strategies towards completing my project. I'm so grateful to have found Kristin and this course. Highly recommend it!"

Alicia Moya-Mendez
Artist & Scientist

"I love the class and meetings Kristin has created. She goes over things with such care and detail, always keeping the art and artist in mind. This could be a dry, soulless business class, or an aimless creative art workshop, but she has such a perfect approach to both that is refreshing. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher! "

Kameron Messmer
Balloon Artist

"Kristin offers such vital energy and passion to not only her work but to those who share time with her professionally. It is at the intersection of her vibrant heart-centered energy and her practice where she delivers the utmost present and customized person-centered coaching. To work with Kristin is to work with heart, purpose, and meaning. "

Shelby Silver
Ecological Artist

"Working with Kristin has helped me to find my voice in story telling. She has supported every step I have taken to become a writer and an artist with love, encouragement and energy. I am so grateful for her support. "

Melissa Nelson
Writer

Kristin works with her clients to cultivate individual success through establishing clear goals and systematic steps for desired outcomes. Using best practices and multifaceted approaches to achieving client goals, Kristin will immediately become your best advocate. Beyond all of her gifts, is her ability to not only see the best of her clients, but also to leverage her client strengths for their own success."

Tracy Kirchmann
Artist, Educator, and Mentor

"Kristin Solomon is a magic-worker. Her gentle guidance has helped me to follow my passion and turn it into a reality. Her approach is unique and thoughtful. When I was feeling lost artistically and burnt out professionally, Kristin showed me how to re-connect with myself and then watch the expansiveness of options open up in front of me. Building a unique business like mine was not easy and it certainly took a lot of time and effort, but every step of the way I felt confident knowing what I was working towards sat on a solid base of planning and intention. I can honestly say I would not be where I am now without Kristin’s guidance, and working with her was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself "

Miss Wondersmith
Artist and Writer

"Kristin moves with great faith with her mission to use her talent for others. A free spirit and great thinker, destiny brought her to Colored Pencils Art and Culture Council when we needed fresh perspective and life force that can move us forward. It’s not only her knowledge on organizational strategic plan, cross-cultural facilitating skill and her great discipline that she brought but her love of mankind. Her commitment to leave this world a better place made her become one of us. She reminded us to ground firm our root, yet expand our work to make sure that everyone is included."

THIS PROGRAM IS FOR YOU IF YOU...

Want a partner in creativity and success. Our method is unconventional. We have a hands-on relational approach with our clients. We will be your challenger as well as your champion. We will be there for the highs and lows and help you navigate them all with poise and humor.



Are ready to get serious about things you have only ever dreamed about. The first step is on you, you must have the courage to be your most authentic self and put yourself out there and have faith in your own creativity and talent. 



Are willing to put in the thought, time, and money it takes to make it happen. Our process is not the easiest, quickest, and cheapest way, but it is the most sustainable and rewarding. We can coach you through it, but we can't do all the work for you. 

THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR YOU IF YOU...

Make excuses... like I don't have time, money, or energy to commit to the process. There are always going to be reasons to stall or self-sabotage your dreams. The most successful people are resourceful and find ways to make it happen.


Don't take constructive criticism. It's important to be able to receive feedback well, not take it personally, and be willing to make the necessary changes needed to propel you forward. It's all for your benefit. 


Think and act small. You're only limited by your own mind. Many people make the mistake of trying to fit into others' ideas of success. Be original. We won't help you fit into a mold, but rather help you create one that works uniquely for you.
