Pet Pawtrait - a Little Art School Workshop
*watch this space for up coming dates for Pet Pawtrait workshops next year in Wanaka and Queenstown *
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at painting your favourite fur child but can't draw? Would you love to create an acrylic painting to give someone special for Christmas but don't know where to start? Sign up for Pet Pawtrait, send through some decent resolution photos of your muse (animal), I will select the best one (run it by you, of course) and draw up a simplified template on a canvas for you. You get the fun part of painting it! A little similar to paint by numbers but you get to decide on the colour scheme. In this one day workshop, I will coach you through the painting process to a successful final pet portrait.
Set in a fun and nurturing environment in the heart of Wanaka. This class is aimed at beginners, people who would love to try painting or folk looking to create a thoughtful, unique gift for someone special.
If you could please pay bank deposit, that would be amazing 🙂
