Painting it Forward
Thursday, June 6
6:30 - 9:30PM
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!
Attitudes In Reverse® (AIRTM) is a Princeton-based, volunteer-driven nonprofit that aims to save lives through mental-health and suicide-prevention education. AIR was established by Tricia, Kurt and Katelyn Baker of Plainsboro, NJ, in 2010, soon after their son/brother Kenny died by suicide following a long battle against severe depression and anxiety. Their mission is to save lives by educating students about mental health, related disorders and suicide prevention. The AIR Dogs: Paws for Minds program, which brings certified therapy and emotional support dogs into schools to help students de-stress and engage in the conversation about mental health. Since its inception, AIR has presented to more than 75,000 students in middle and high schools and colleges across the United States.

After registration, no refunds will be given. **Registration for this class will close 2 weeks prior to class date**Photos not sent in by deadline will not have a canvas to paint on April 18, and therefore you will lose your seat (no refunds).
All pictures need to showcase your animal and reflect unobstructed views of their pet. 300dpi works best.
Here are standards for success:
a) 1 pet per person/per photo
b) Highest resolution possible
c) Pet is clear and in the foreground with no furniture, objects, grass, etc. blocking any body parts
d) Pet is centered in the photo either FULL BODY or HEAD SHOT, with no cropped off edges.
e) Our best advice is to take a photo of your pet with the best camera you have outside during the day, under a shaded area (like your front porch, back patio, or inside near a window).
f) Remember, the better your photo is, the easier the painting process will be.
Note: there is an AGE LIMIT for Project Pet: no children under the age of 15 will be admitted to the studio.
