IT'S TIME FOR PAINT YOUR PET!!!
(please read all info below for this special class)
*****A separate registration is required for each painter* -This helps Amanda keep track of pets & owners and which canvas size you select.
Amanda will be teaching students as a class step by step how to paint their very own pet portraits! No experience required. You have creative freedom to make it as realistic or as pop-art style as you would like within our 3 hour session. Amanda and her assistants will be able to help you here and there but this will be mainly your own masterpiece you work on that you are able to take home and love forever!
You will arrive to this class to find your pet sketched onto your canvas and ready to paint! Photo references MUST be sent in ahead of time no later than 5 days before the class date.

*no pet photo/info is needed if you are simply continuing to work on a painting from a previous class and not adding another pet in.
Send in 1-3 High resolution photos of your pet in good lighting that Amanda can use to pre-sketch onto your canvas. If you need help choosing the best image for your painting, please include your choices in the message and Amanda can help guide you.
- One (1) pet can be sketched per class for you to work on.
* If you would like multiple pets on the same canvas, you can sign up for additional future classes to add your pets in one by one. A larger canvas size is required for multiple pets, please consider this when choosing your canvas size below. Due to the 3-hour timeframe it is not possible for Amanda to lead you through multiple pets in one class session. If additional time is needed, you are more than welcome to continue your painting in a future Paint Your Pet class! These Paint Your Pet classes will be offered by Amanda at least once every few months at Norse Brewing Company.
Please specify your canvas size, color scheme, who you are sitting with and how you will be sending the image of your pet at the bottom of this page.
Make sure to register any additional painters in your group in a separate registration.
*You are also always welcome to sign up for this class again in the future if you need more time to work on your painting. You are welcome to bring in a pet portrait you have already started in a past class and continue to work on it with help from Amanda's demonstrations and guidance. This is a great way to get assistance on completing the piece if you need additional time to work on it after your first class or to add another pet to your canvas. Everyone works at their own pace, this will take the pressure off if you need a little more time or want to change a thing or two after class. Amanda can pre sketch your second pet for you. Please text for address to drop off your canvas before the event to have your additional pet sketched onto it. 9732292465
Paint Your Pet will be held once every other month.
