Pet Portraits


  • Ages: 6 – 12
  • Cost: $165
  • 6-weeks
  • November 3rd – December 8th (Thursday – once a week) 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM

Create a FUN pet portrait of your furry friend! Paint your pet dog, cat, bunny, horse, guinea pig, etc. The instructor will give a demonstration before each class along with one-on-one guidance. Students will be drawing their pets first and then transferring the drawings onto their canvas. Each student will choose their background scene. We will be working on a 12X16 canvas using acrylic paint.

Bring a few high-resolution photos of your pets from a few different angles. Bring pictures of your surroundings at home (maybe fun patterns of a pillow, furniture, curtains, etc.) to create a unique background that goes with your décor.

All supplies are included in the cost.
