Paint Your Pet Workshop

Fridays from 1pm to 4pm (5pm - 8pm upon request)

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned artist, this class is perfect for anyone who loves their furry friend and wants to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

It's also a great way to bond and create a workshop party for your friends and colleagues. Consider this for your next function or team building adventure. We find communication flows freely when you are focused on your painting, and everyone appreciates each other's work. Groups of about 6 is a comfortable team.

Our experienced instructor will guide you step-by-step through the process of creating a beautiful acrylic painting of your pet. You'll learn how to mix colors, use different brush strokes, and create depth and texture in your painting. Plus, you'll get to take home your finished masterpiece at the end of the workshop!

All materials will be provided, including a pre-sketched canvas of your pet, acrylic paints, brushes, and apron.

The only thing you need to bring is a photo of your pet to work from- to be sent 1 week in advance to our artist/instructor Esther Hill.

Don't miss this opportunity to create a lasting memory of your beloved pet.
