"Thanks so much for the wonderful afternoon of painting at Woofers. I was truly surprised at how well the painting turned out, I can’t even draw decent stick people, let alone paint. Thank you for laying the groundwork and providing awesome guidance for this non artist." Rachel Williams, student at Woofer's Paint Your Pet Class.

"Thank you so much Robyn! We both had the best time. We shared it on our Facebook pages and we both have so many people who are interested in doing this. My 4 year old was so excited to have a picture of Beanie up in his room. It was very therapeutic for me to paint him. Thank you again!" Julie Huezo, student at PetWorks "Paint Your Pet" class.

The special "Paint Your Pet" workshop on July 8th to raise funds for PAWS Cancer Surgery and Rehabilitation was a great success.

You can also find out more, get on the waiting list, or purchase your tickets by contacting Abbey at OVCC. Here are some images from the July fundraiser / Paint Your Pet Class.

I offer private Traveling Painting parties, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options or to set up an event.
Woofer and PetWorks. The sign up for these classes are managed by Woofers and PetWorks, so to sign up for one of them, just click the links I have provided on this page. It will take you to their specific registration pages.
Please remember to email me an image of the pet, or animal, you would like to sketch for your painting. My email address is: email@example.com
This is a 3- 4 hour class and NO prior art skills are needed.
I work with you to help you create an artistic representation of your beloved pet, or any animal you love.
This class will use Acrylic paints and all materials are provided, including a canvas
After you register for the event you will need to send me a photo of your pet, or the animal you want to paint, one pet per canvas please. You can send it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it via text to my phone at (360) 292-3129.
The photo that you decide to use needs to be in focus, or as clear as you can get it, I can work with somewhat fuzzy images, with good lighting. It is best if it is a close up of your pet, I can crop it for you to make sure that your pet, or animal, is the key subject of your painting.
RESERVATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL because I need to collect the images and sketch them onto your canvases prior to the painting day.
When we all meet to paint, you will have a canvas ready to go with your pet or animal image.
Once you arrive, I will work with you to help you select paint colors for your portrait. I will also provide some general instructions about painting with acrylic paints, how to mix colors, how to use the different brushes, etc. I will also provide specific art instruction and guidance for your specific portrait.
The cost of the class includes a canvas, paints, brushes, and other materials as needed to complete your painting.
Because I need to pre-sketch your portrait, and I have limited spaces available, there will be no refunds for no shows.
$55.00 per person
I also provide Traveling Paint Your Pet classes for Private Parties
I will bring the art class to you! I will travel to your home, your work place or a public meeting space for a private painting party.
The traveling painting parties allow you to choose the date and time that works for you and your group.
You can choose to create a pet/animal portrait or pick your own theme for the party.
I will provide the art supplies needed, including paints, brushes, canvases, easels, aprons and instruction.
These events are perfect for kids parties, friends activities, family events, church groups…the list goes on and on. It is fun, easy and you get to learn something too! Costs
I also offer a more comprehensive Art Class Learn to paint using Open Acrylics (similar to Oil’s but without the toxic chemicals)
Start with six Saturdays and learn to paint a portrait of your pet or an animal you love.
Each Session runs from 1:00-4:00pm
I will work with you to help you create an artistic representation of your beloved pet, or any animal you love. You will learn about, color, mixing color, brushes and brush technique, and the importance of values in painting.
When you are finished you will have a masterpiece portrait created by YOU of your beloved friend!
All materials are included.
Because this is a painting class, not a drawing class, I will pre-sketch your image onto the canvas prior to the class.
RESERVATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL because I need time to collect the images of your pet/animal and sketch them onto the canvas for you.
