This is a chance to have a custom pet portrait painted by you! This event will be a little different than our regular events as each guest will have a unique pet painting to create. Seats will be limited and the instructor-to-guest ratio will be lower than our regular events to ensure you have optimal one-on-one instruction in addition to general instruction. Our instructor(s) will assist in the selection of your palette, answer any questions you have, and offer suggestions if needed, but this will be your unique creative endeavour. You’ll work at your own pace, not along with the rest of the attendees. We will supply extra pre-mixed colours in addition to our usual primary selection.

*If you would like to paint more than one pet ON ONE CANVAS, the cost is $10.00+tax per additional pet. Each pet needs its own time and attention for painting (just like in real life!). Please email us (email@example.com) if you would like to paint multiple pets on your canvas.
*If you would like to have your pet(s) portrait painted but you’re not in an artsy mood, have it painted for you by one of our professional artists for just $100+tax! Contact us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
***Upon purchasing your tickets, PLEASE EMAIL (email@example.com) us a high quality, clear, well-lit, digital colour photo of your pet(s*) – preferably a close-up taken at eye level and we will do the rest. All you will need to do is decide on a background colour! Each photo will be transferred onto a 16×20″ canvas and our talented instructors will walk you through the steps to create your very own custom pet portrait!
Based on your photo, we reserve the right to crop the image to a headshot, prep the canvas horizontally or vertically, and limit any detail in the background of the photo you provide. Any pet can work! Dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, iguanas, show us what you got! Starting with a good photo is important! Send us a few shots if you like and we’ll choose the most suitable one. Don’t forget to bring the submitted photo(s) with you the night of the event (either in print or on your phone)!
Please submit your pet photo by May 1st. Email photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and identify yourself by the name the ticket is purchased under. We will confirm receipt of your photo and let you know if it is suitable for the painting.
Price: $50.00+tax - includes guided group and one-on-one instruction, a prepped 16x20" ready-to-hang canvas, acrylic paint (water-based), use of brushes, easels, and smocks.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the event’s start time to allow time to sign in, order drinks, and get settled in as painting will begin promptly at the scheduled start time.
Once you arrive, please find an artist or assistant (we’ll be up at the front or in the midst of setting up, depending on how early you arrive) and check in with them. We work off a guest list so you can present either your ticket (paper or electronic) or the name the ticket was purchased under to register. Your seat will be pre-reserved for you so if you’re coming with a friend who purchased their ticket under a different name, be sure to send us a message so we can seat you together. Now you’re free to grab a drink or some food before we begin to paint!
Seating: Seating is first-come, first-serve, so come early if sitting beside your pal is a must. For larger groups of 7 or more, we will have pre-saved seats for you.
Event Length: It will only take about 2 hours to complete your ready-to-hang masterpiece!
Age Requirement: Adult event (19 and over)
Dress code: While it's important to look cute, painting can get messy - dress accordingly
Event Hosts: Corinne M. Long & Francesca Wallace
