Paint Your Pet


  • Tuesday, June 11 and Friday, June 14 - 1-3 pm both days
Join us for this 2-part class!

A pet portrait is an excellent way to honor your fur baby, best feathered friend, or other beloved critter. Join us to learn how to sketch your pet in various positions, capture your pet’s personality, and create a basic outline for your painting. Then learn acrylic painting techniques including under-painting, choosing an appropriate color palette, layering, blending and texturing. These techniques will add interest, dimension and lifelike aspects to your pet’s image.

Register by Tuesday, June 4. Cost is $30.
Cancellation policy applies.
