How long does the class go for?
Can I paint two animals in one portrait?
One pet per painting. if you wish to paint two animals, why not bring along a friend or relative to paint with you?
Can children attend the class?
Yes, however, children under the age of 16 are required to be accompanied by an adult and be mature enough to participate in the session. If you are booking a class with a child you must register for two spaces - we are strictly limited to 30 people in the painting area due to Covid restrictions.
Can I bring my dog?
This is a human only event, and your attention will be taken up by eating delicious food, sipping coffee and creating great art. You won't be able to mind your dog and we want to be able to put all our attention on helping you to create a masterpiece.
Do I get to keep my painting?
Yes, once the class is finished, you are welcome to take home your portrait.
How do I book?
Select the 'Book Now' button on this page and follow the prompts to select the 10am start time on January 17th. We will be in touch in the coming days to confirm which picture you will use for the painting.
What if I need more time?
With the paints and canvas we use, two hours will be more than enough time for you to create an excellent pet portrait. However, if you do need more time, acrylic paints are inexpensive and can be finished at home.
Why do I need to pay before the class?
We dedicate time before the fundraiser to sketching up every single pet portrait that's registered for the class. We do not have the capacity for walk-ins.
What if I'm late for the class?
We are on a strict schedule for the day so if you are late to the session you will have to jump in where you can. If you are more than 30 minutes late to the class we will consider your ticket forfeit. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to the class
