Project PetCalling all animal lovers! One of our favorite painting classes is Project Pet. Our next Project Pet session is on Sunday, December 11th (10am-1pm). Here is how the class works:
- Once you sign up for the painting, email us a digital photo of your pet.
- One of our artists will do some Photoshop magic, cutting-out your pet’s photo with care.
- The cut-out image files are sent to a printing company, where they are then screen-printed in black and white onto 16x20’’ canvases.
- The printed canvases are displayed when you get to class, and then we teach you how to paint your preferred background, as well as how to add color/fur to your pet portrait. We have 2-3 extra artists for this class, which means more one-on-one help! We also print out your photo so you have it handy to refer to for mixing colors.
Since this class is a couple weeks before Christmas, we’d love to help you add a holiday themed background, as well as a Santa Claus hat if you prefer! And if you love animals, but don’t have one yourself, feel free to paint a family member’s or friend’s pet -- pet paintings make great holiday gifts! We even have painters send us images of animals that they’ve found online. This class might seem difficult, but with the added artist help, it is truly amazing how each pet portrait turns out. Since this is one of our more popular paintings, head online to reserve your easel before the class sells out!
