Painting it Forward
Thursday, October 17

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!
DEADLINE FOR PHOTOS IS OCTOBER 5 12 NOON! Send in all photos before then, thank you!
Perfect Gift Idea for the Holidays!
Our fundraiser helps fund the work that SAVE does for our local community's homeless animals.
SAVE has been rescuing and sheltering abandoned, abused, and homeless dogs and cats in the greater Princeton area since 1941. We provide life-saving medical treatment, food, training and love to hundreds of animals every year.
Please consider the many benefits of adopting a cat or dog from SAVE. You can save the life of a homeless animal and enrich your life as well. By welcoming a homeless pet into your family, you will experience the special reward of saving a shelter animal and gaining the unconditional love of a new forever friend.
Our bright and modern shelter welcomes visitors to meet animals currently available for adoption, volunteer, or attend one of the informative lectures in our community room. There are many opportunities for you to support homeless animals. Tour our website and visit SAVE to learn more. savehomelessanimals.org
Just send us a high quality photo of your fur baby, and we will work our magic to transfer the image onto your canvas before you arrive. Our talented artists will lead you step-by-step while you enjoy your favorite beverage and watch your pet portrait come to life!
Send us a photo via (jpg.) ATTACHMENT of your pet by OCTOBER 5 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
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.

Q) I can't even draw a straight line...will I be able to do this and complete the painting?
Absolutely! Most guests have never painted a day in their life or at least since they were in pre-school. Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the featured painting and will ensure that you stay on track to completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making mistakes easy to fix and perfect
