Join us for a relaxing art event, learn new painting techniques, and create a portrait of your pet.

The program includes an introduction to a booming art industry of pet portraits in classical, Renaissance, royal, and any other possible attire. You will learn more about how the idea of picturing pets (specifically, dogs) as humans had been introduced by painter Cassius Marcellus Coolidge and his “Dogs Playing Poker” (1903-1910).

At this art event, you will have the opportunity to choose your own composition and create your own work, based on the image and character of your pet, and your unique imagination.

No painting experience is necessary. All levels are welcome to participate. Bring a letter-size portrait of your pet.
