Learn to paint unique and charming portraits of your pet

Working from photographs, this workshop will cover a range of tips and techniques for creating an expressive painting. Learn to use loose, fluid brushstrokes for developing fur and whiskers, and mix colors in a supportive and relaxed setting with lots of personal attention.

This class is great for those without any painting experience, those who enjoy painting regularly, and those who would like to branch out into pet portrait painting with acrylics. Come experience for yourself why we are regularly voted Athens' favorite place to take an adult creative class!

Re-Scheduling your class to ensure Covid-19 Safety:

These are difficult times, and we don't want anyone who has developed symptoms of Covid-19 to put others at risk. We implore you to stay home if you feel that you may have contracted Covid. As such, we are waiving our normal cancellation policy described below.

If you need to stay home during one or more of your scheduled classes, we will make sure that you are offered options for make-up classes, no matter how short notice. Make-up classes are subject to availability, but we'll find something for you to enjoy once you have tested negative and are ready to return to class.
