PAINT-YOUR-PET NIGHT INFO!
Note: As of Fall 2016 we will be holding Pet Nights for fundraisers only- usually for pet charities and causes. No public ones are currently scheduled, though this might change. The fee for these special events is $35 pp for D and D. The charity may charge what they want- $20, $30, $100? It's your call. So if Pet Shelter Inc. wants to make $20 pp, the total pp charge would be $55.
Paint-Your-Pet Night! We've had lizards, chickens, livestock.....and of course cats and dogs.
You don't think you have the talent for this? Fear not- our artists pre-sketch the pets on the canvas for you from photos that you email to us. You do the rest under our instruction. They always come out great!
The key to making this class successful is a good, clear, up-close, well-lit photo of your pet. It can't be stressed enough! We need to be able to see the eyes, nose, body and other features clearly. Also, a more traditional pet-type pose is better than some wacky, weird angle. Send a few shots if you want, and we'll choose the best one, and try to make the best decision on how to position your pet drawing on the canvas. If you don't have any good, recent photos, then dang it- grab a camera or someone's phone and take some new ones! If you're photo isn't good, your painting won't be either.
Please label each photo/file with YOUR last name (not the pet's) and a number to signify which is your favorite photo- if you send multiple shots. And remind your guests about this too! (Your pix should read something like...McCarthy 1, or Horton 3…not image.jpeg since many are sent to us with that generic camera label.)
Then email your labeled photos and/or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Also....since this night requires extra time and preparation on our part, we charge a bit more and do not accept any coupons or Groupon-type discounts. We're confident that you'll agree it's worth it!
- By the way, below is a very good pet photo, and a very bad one (the gray dog).
