Capturing your occasion in a painting! 

Live Event Art

Kait Geis Live Event Artist

Live event painting is a unique and memorable way to capture a moment. While providing entertainment to the guests, Katie captures the event as it plays out and finishes with an original painting to commemorate your special day to be cherished for years to come. This is a great way to entertain your guests throughout the event as they are able to watch the painting progress. This is a specialty service that requires the artist to make quick decisions while also engaging an audience.

Materials Used:

High quality acrylic paint on a pre-stretched canvas or high quality watercolor paint on 300 lb. paper or watercolor board


Live-event pricing varies based off size, materials, time, travel, and date of the event. Pricing typically ranges between $1600-3000 for local clients. Katie is available for wedding receptions, galas, fashion shows, fundraisers, and other corporate events as well as smaller gatherings such as bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, anniversary dinners, and more. Typically, Katie shows up a few hours prior to do some prep work. Following the event, she may do any touch-ups that are needed before giving the painting away. Half payment is required upon booking. Katie is available to travel anywhere within the United States and abroad with special rates for Wisconsin, California, Virgina, and Arizona. For international travel, Katie asks that airfaire and 4 days travel accomodations are covered. Please contact for further pricing.

Framing is not needed for the acrylic paintings as they are done on canvas. When finished, the painting can be hung directly onto the wall.

Watercolor paintings will need framing and recommendations are available upon request.

If requested, prints can be made available to order through (Dinner in the Alley prints available here)

Katie did a fantastic job painting at our wedding! We had her paint a scene outside of our venue and it turned out stunning. Conducting a live painting outside is not her typical request for weddings but she was very accepting and open to our idea. We cannot wait to hang the painting in our new home together! She created such a memorable piece for us. She is so relaxed and easygoing. Although we didn’t get to watch her paint, our guests raved about how talented Katie was. My husband and I highly recommend having her at your wedding!! -Katie & Lee 6.1.19

Thank you Katie Geis for “wowing” our guests with your amazing talents! They truly were fascinated with your live artist watercolor rendering of our daughter’s first dance with her new husband at the Grain Exchange. Your attention to detail and interaction with our guests was a fun process to watch. We also loved that you truly wanted the newlyweds to be happy with the final product by asking for their input on any personalization requests. They can’t wait to display it proudly in their new home. It also was the perfect wedding gift that we got to surprise our daughter and new son-in-law with that evening. I plan on hiring you again soon for some pieces of our own for our home. Again, I have thoroughly enjoyed following your work this past year, and can’t wait to see your next masterpiece.
