Paint Your Pet

All traditional painting parties are cancelled for the unforseen future. If you're interested in an online Paint Your Pet party, then please proceed. 

What is a Paint Your Pet party?

Basically, you send in a photo of your pet (or whichever animal). Erin creates a sketch for you to follow. You will receive some supplies, available for pickup, and you'll be given instruction via an online video call. Erin will set it up so you can see everything and will coach you through your struggles. 

Erin has taught hundreds of people to paint, and even though online classes aren't ideal, they are still a valid and helpful way to learn to paint! 

I've never painted before. Can I do this?

Believe it or not, I’ve had people who have never painted before come and finish a pet portrait.
Look, don’t expect to just finish in an hour without breaking a sweat. Erin’s going to take you out of your comfort zone. With a few jokes, some swear words and a great attitude, you’ll be able to do it.
Whether you think you can, or you can’t — you’re right. - Henry Ford

 

How many people?

Min 1, (otherwise I'd be talking to myself, which is already too common these days)

Max 4

How long will it take?

At least three hours, sometimes closer to four. It depends on how fast the pace is of the group. Some groups are quick and some are slow.

 

Which supplies are included?

 

We will be using: 
    • Artist Quality Acrylic paint
    • Synthetic Acrylic Brushes
    • 11 x 14 canvas*
    • Easel
    • Pallette
    • Cup for water
    • Paper Towel

    11 x 14 canvas - will have the image of your pet sketched out ahead of time and numbered to make it easy to reproduce the image of your pet!

    How will it turn out?

    Check out the gallery! You can see examples from REAL people who are not artists.

    How can I take a good photo of my pet?

    • Get low - get on the floor or ground on your pet's level

    • Portrait shots are the easiest

    • Use treats your pet to sit still and look at you

    • Get good light - Take your photo during the day or outside

    • Be Patient

    What if I don't have a pet?

    You can paint a picture of a tiger for all I care. I've had someone paint a yak, that was cute!

    Can I get paint on myself?

    Yes. As with ALL painting parties. There is always a chance of you getting paint on yourself and your belongings. Wear clothes that you can get paint on.


    Cost - $70/person
