ABOUT THIS EVENT
Event Category

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

My name is Hope Kieffer, and I want to teach you how to Paint Your Pet! I've painted over 300 pet commissions to date, and I'd love to share my skill and insight with you in a fun, easy going class.


I will be walking you through how to paint your pet step by step with artist quality acrylic paint on a 12x16 canvas! You will be provided with a canvas with your pet already traced on it, so class will be like filling in a coloring book. No drawing required!


We will be providing iced tea, soda, and snacks for class, free of charge with your ticket purchase.


Price also includes a FREE glass of wine!

Prerequisites

Please send your favorite pet photo to hopekiefferart@gmail.com and title your email "Paint your pet class" at least 3 days prior to the event to make sure your pet's image gets pre-sketched!

What's Provided

I will provide paint, canvas, easels, and everything else you'll need to produce a masterpiece and discover your inner artist.

What You Can Expect
  • Don't forget to send your photo to hopekiefferart@gmail.com
  • Please wear clothes you're willing to get paint on!

    I have attended 2 Paint your Pet classes with Hope the awesome art instructor. The first time I didnt know what I was doing but Hope is right there for you and all the other people painting (some were even Art Majors in school) will help too if you want it. I was in awe when I finally finished. It turned out great!!! The next month I signed up again and painted my horse. This time I was much better at it but still got help when I needed it. I will continue to go everytime she has ‘Paint Your Pet’. I am going to paint every animal I owned plus the ones I have now. Hanging them all over the house instead of buying pictures cause its so cute having the Pets I Painted hanging all over the house!!! It is soooo much fun!!!! As well as relaxing!!

    I enjoyed this fun class very much. Hope, the teacher was very positive and responsive given her time constraints. She had assistants so that really helped when participants just needed their supplies replenished. I am not particularly artistic but with her clear instructions I think I finished with a very satisfactory painting of one of my dogs. I thought the class was very reasonably priced considering all you received, and I would definitely do this class again.

    I loved taking the Paint Your Pet class with Hope! She is so helpful and guides you through the painting process. Everyone turned out a fabulous painting of their pet!!! I was so impressed and proud of what I ended up with, a beautiful painting of my poodle Lucy! I plan on going back to paint Lucy's big brother Charlie too! I am encouraging my friends to join me.

    It was SO much fun! It was great to see not only how well I could do my own painting, but to see everyone else's pet photos and paintings - all the different styles were amazing.

    Hope is a great teacher and did a wonderful job of answering questions and providing guidance and feedback, especially considering how many of us were asking for her attention! This was a fun class and I’d do it again!

    Hope was a fantastic teacher! My friends and I were very nervous how the portraits of our dogs would turn out as none of us are particularly artistic. Hope was thorough and clear in her instructions and we had pictures we were proud of (and frankly amazed that we had managed to paint!) by the end of the class!

    I had a wonderful time being my first painting class experience. The host Holly was super helpful and gave good instructions during class. She even had time to walk around and help everyone's individual needs. Weather you are an expert or novice this class is for you. Had a lot of fun mixing colors and trying out some of my own ideas to really make it a personal experience and painting. Very happy with my out come and look forward to future classes.

    Great class. After losing my pet recently, the opportunity for something more than just photos was appealing. Hope is great at explaining and helping along for a one of a kind keepsake!
