What you'll do

I am an animal lover and understand the importance that animals have in our lives. I have adopted 3 rescue dogs and also have 3 bunnies The bond between an animal and caretaker can be an amazing gift to both! I have taught many people how to draw, paint and embellish a pet portrait A few days before our class I will also ask you what your preferred background color, I will also ask you to send me your favorite image of your pet in an email. I will pre-paint the background and will also draw your pet onto your 10x10 canvas. When you come to my studio, you will be given your prepainted and outlined portrait. We will then paint your furry or feathered friend on canvas. I will show you brush techniques, help you to mix colors, and help you along the whole creative process. If time allows, we will also be exploring the canvas more with college and adding more relevant images for texture and a deeper and stronger image. Honor your pet with a meaningful portrait!
Other things to note
Be excited about creating a piece of art that honors your pet. Have a "growth" mind set. You can do this!

Had a lot of fun doing something creative with my mom. Jenny helped us the whole way through and was friendly. I would love to take another class from her.

Such a great time! Jenny is very knowledgeable about painting and personal enough to where you almost forget she is guiding the way for your regular painting to become a pet-inspired masterpiece. Thanks again for having us :)

Jenny has really crafted a personally rewarding and personalised experience. She can easily help a somewhat experienced painter and someone with no prior experience simultaneously. We are so happy with our finished paintings, and Jenny wouldn't settle for any less. She was such a champ helping us perfect and tweak every last detail to help each piece exude our sphynx cat's personality! Even my husband left gushing over what we were able to create in 3 short hours. Hats off to Jenny!!

I had such a good time doing this experience! We worked together to create the best portrait of my cat. Jenny really knows what she’s doing and talking about, it the experience very comfortable. We were able to talk to each other no issue while working, and in general I believe that this is such a cool experience to take part of, and such a cool idea. Definitely worth checking out, if you need something to do for a couple of hours!

Jenny is a great teacher who makes you feel you are capable of anything. I would never have guessed I could paint my pet and truly capture his spirit. Such an awesome experience. Only wish I could have spent more time...

This was a wonderfully enjoyable and surprisingly relaxing experience. Jenny is a wonderful, friendly host and she made sure to guide us with our paintings without ever taking over, so that we could still feel like the finished piece was our own accomplishment. I would highly recommend this experience to all the animal lovers out there — my friend and I were so pleased with the finished products!
