This event is so much fun! Bring a pic of your pet and you'll be guided in creating a great painting of him/her! You can also bring a picture of a friend's pet, paint it and give it to them as a gift.... It makes an amazing gift! (You can go to their Facebook or Instagram page, look for a pic of their pet and print it out)
• Important Requirement - Either one 8 1/2 x 11 or 11x 17 B&W PHOTO/XEROX COPY OF YOUR PET (or other). If you can't get the picture printed out at either of those sizes, don't worry. Just try to get it somewhat close (within a few inches) and the artist will work with you to make it look great.
Step 1 - Bring a 11x 17 (or 8 1/2 x 11 b&w) and a color version of your favorite pet
Step 2 - Let the teacher guide you towards painting your masterpiece
BY THE WAY... YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE ANY ARTISTIC ABILITY TO ENJOY THIS EVENT. FOR MANY PEOPLE ATTENDING IT WILL BE THEIR FIRST TIME PAINTING ANYTHING IN YEARS. THE ARTIST WILL WALK YOU THROUGH EVERYTHING STEP BY STEP.
