Paint a portrait of your pet at Project Pet. Once you sign up for the painting, email us a high quality digital photo of your pet (one pet per canvas, please) and we will do the rest. Each photo will be transferred onto a 16”X20” canvas. Our talented artists will walk you through the steps to create your very own Pet Portrait!

This events Non-Profit Partner: New Leash on Life
New Leash on Life Chicago is an entirely volunteer run, nonprofit organization committed to finding loving homes for shelter dogs who might otherwise be euthanized. Through our adoption, foster, training and education programs, NLOL Chicago addresses the nationwide issue of pet overpopulation and the importance of spay/neuter. We also tackle local concerns, such as the threat of breed-specific legislation (BSL). The mission of NLOL Chicago is to provide consistent advocacy for those forgotten animals - to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. By adopting, fostering, volunteering or making a tax deductible donation, you can make a real difference in the lives of innocent animals who deserve a happy, healthy pain-free life.
Paint a portrait of your furry friend at our "Project Pet" Paint Party. Once you reserve your seat, simply email a photo of your pet to email@example.com. PLEASE NOTE: only one pet per canvas. Once you e-mail the photo, we take care of the rest! We remove the color and background from around the pet and print a grayscale image of the photo to canvas. At the event, our talented artists will guide you through the painting to create your very own Pet Portrait. The results are AMAZING!
PROJECT PET IMAGE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS MONDAY, September 24th
Pinot’s Palette is a fun and engaging paint and sip experience – a revolutionary way to enjoy art and drinks, meet new people and bond with friends.
At our sip and paint parties, guests enjoy a 'no art experience required' paint party & all art supplies are included! You'll be led by our talented local artists who will guide you step-by-step to create the featured painting.
Our paint events are more party than an art class. Though our artists will guide you to create the featured painting, this is your masterpiece! You can follow along as much, or as little, as you’d like. Feel free to choose a different color from our paint cart, add in your own detail or paint another image entirely. We encourage creativity!
We have a full-service bar! Choose from our delicious cocktail menu, studio selection of wine by the glass or bottle or one of our craft beers. Non-alcoholic drinks are also available for purchase. Complimentary bottled water is available at the bar. We are not a BYOB establishment; outside beverages are not permitted. Our bartenders will take great care of you!
The more the merrier, INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! We paint, drink and have fun!
