We love "Paint Your Pet"...
I painted again with friends today at the studio. We love "Paint Your Pet". Carrie is an excellent instructor and really helps you to bring out your best skills. Her direction is very clear and makes it an enjoyable experience. I suggest you go with a friend or two, it makes it a nice day out! I plan on going back, again and again!
Every time I go I learn something new...
If you want to paint your beloved pet and have some fantastic instruction on how to do it, you have to go to Carrie Curran Art Studios. She is fantastic and everyone she has working their are very skilled and fabulous painters! Every time I go I learn something new. She is encouraging and helps you through the creative process so that you can truly do the painting yourself!
People email pictures of their pets to Curran several days in advance. Then she sketches each animal’s likeness onto a canvas. She readies paint and supplies before class. Most people paint dogs, but Curran has also helped clients paint horses, cats and birds. “One little boy painted a picture of his gecko,” she says Curran offers plenty of guidance while participants take the artwork from sketch to finished painting. She often helps with areas like the eyes to make sure the portraits capture each pet’s personality.
The three-hour classes cost $75 per person. Everyone takes home a 16×20-inch painting. Sometimes pet lovers arrange fundraisers to benefit a favorite animal-related cause. Sometimes you’ll find Curran’s dog, a Labradoodle named Lexi, enjoying a bit of studio time.
