Paint Your Pet - Painting Workshop

Saturday, January 27

1:00-4:00 pm


Here's a chance just for kids (ages 7 to 14) to paint a portrait of their favorite furry friend on a stretched canvas! We will sketch a detailed drawing of the pet on their canvas before they come to the studio. Then we'll guide our young artists through the painting process, step-by-step. We know they'll love their beautiful pet portraits!!! 


Two sizes to choose from, discounted rates just for kids!


Please email your PET PHOTO for this class no later than the Wednesday, January 24, 2018 


Learn more about how to submit your pet's photo below. We'll need it on time so we can have your canvas all ready for your child on Paint Your Pet day!  NOTE: Adults / parents are welcome to come and paint with their children. Make this a family activity! Discounted rates shown apply to each painter, regardless of age. 





Heres how it works:


  1. Sign up for the next Paint Your Pet  above (if one has been scheduled) or at the Blackfoot Art Center studio at 73 N. Broadway. At that time you will select a canvas size for your painting. NOTE: If we do not have an upcoming Paint Your Pet Workshop - contact us and book your own!
  2. Take (or choose) a good picture of your pet. We recommend clear, high-resolution headshots/close-ups for best results.  The photo should show your pet’s personality, possibly including a toy or a ball - or just those big puppy eyes!
  3. Email your pet picture to us at blackfootartcenter@gmail.com. Send more than one photo if you’re are not sure and we will select the best one to transfer to the canvas for you. Label with YOUR name, NOT your pet's name, and number each photo with #1 being your favorite. Photos must be received at least 3 days prior to the workshop (see due date on reservation form above.)
  4. We will transfer your furry best friend to a stretched canvas of your chosen size.
  5. You come to your pet painting workshop and paint that cute furry baby with us! Doors open at 12:45 pm, please come on time so you will be ready to paint at 1:00 pm!

IMPORTANT! Only ONE pet per portrait. Why? There is a time constraint & limited space on your canvas. When multiple pets are attempted in one portrait sitting, the quality of each pet's image is deteriorated and can cause you to feel frustrated, rushed or disappointed. Instead, come back next month and paint another pet portrait! Or, book your own private pet painting party and bring your friends!


Oh, one more thing!

Please leave your furry friend at home! As much as we love them, this is a people-only event!
