Paint & Sip Class: Paint Your Own Pet

Painting

Cats, Dogs, Horses, Chickens or any pet for that matter! Simply Send us a high resolution photograph of one pet that has clarity and good lighting and we will hand sketch the image of your pet onto a 14 x 18 stretched canvas for you prior to the class! During the class, we will guide you through the step by step process of creating a painted portrait of your pet by showing you the colors to mix and painting techniques needed to bring your pet portrait to life. Please do know that the better the photograph, the better your drawing and painting will be! Head shots give the best result, but if you would like the full body then please let us know. We suggest that you avoid long distance pictures and action shots. Keep the background simple so they don't overpower the portrait or take all of your time to paint. Backgrounds can be eliminated all together and changed with different brush strokes or colors. Each animal is a separate portrait and there is not enough time in a class to paint more than one. We will have an 8 x 10 picture of your pet for you to paint from, but feel free to bring even more photos to use as reference for your painting. After reserving your seat online, send your image as soon as possible via email to with your name and the class date. Please send your photo at least 10 days in advance.
