Paint My Pet

Girl in pink shirt paints yellow dog

Paint a portrait of your pet! Participants will paint a portrait of their dog, cat, rabbit — or any animal — under the guidance of an experienced artist. No previous painting experience is needed. Various sessions for ages 7 to adult are offered!

After you’ve registered for the program, you'll receive instructions that request a high resolution photo of your pet (just one pet per canvas). We will transfer the outline of your pet onto a 16x20 inch canvas before the program. The canvas, easel, and all other painting supplies will be provided. Just dress for mess and get ready to be creative! At the end of the program, participants will bring their painting home with them.
