Workshop | Paint Your Pet Portrait
May 21 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$110
Paint Your Pet Portrait is the perfect workshop to learn some painting tips and create a unique work of art of your favorite pet.
Artist Colleen Thompson will be spearheading a custom, step-by-step, pet portrait class. This will be a guided class using acrylic paints on canvas to turn your pup into a work of art.
How it works: Guests who register will simply send a photo of their pet to firstname.lastname@example.org once the registration is complete. When they arrive the day of the workshop, they’ll receive a 16 x 20 inch canvas of their pet sketched and ready to be painted. All materials are provided! Feel free to bring a snack or drink for a break.
$110 per student. All materials provided, including a sketched portrait of your pet on a canvas ready to paint.
There is a maximum of 8 spots available and the deadline to register is end of day May 19th (to allow enough time for portrait prep). Register soon to reserve your space!
** In the event of a cancellation more than seventy two (72) hours prior to the event date, the applicant will receive a refund of the ticket fee. No refund will be given if less than seventy two (72) hours notice of the cancellation is given.
