Paint Your Pet (Fall)

All Skill Levels, Young Adults & Adults
Instructor: Kathy Strauss

Dog, cat – rabbit, mouse, lizard, or even a chicken… everyone loves their pet! Many people would love the idea of having a portrait of their pet on canvas. Unfortunately, most of us can’t afford the painter’s sitting fees. But, what if you were to do the painting yourself? But I have no artistic talent, you say? Fear not – we will guide you through a grid process and basic acrylic painting techniques. From your basic sketch – to the final brushstroke – you will create your pet painting masterpiece! The key to making this class successful is having a good, clear, up-close, well-lit photo of your pet. It can’t be stressed enough! We need to be able to see the eyes, nose, body and other features clearly. Also, a more traditional pet-type pose is better than some wacky, weird angle. If you don’t have any good, recent photos, then grab a camera or someone’s phone and take some new ones! Remember, if you’re photo isn’t good, your painting won’t be either. All students must bring two copies of a printed out photo (MUST be 11x17 on regular copy paper) that will be used for reference in class. Send a few shots to the instructor beforehand if you want, and we’ll choose the best one that will work nicely on the canvas.
