Before attending the event, attendees submit a photograph image of their pet (or any animal) so that they can print a black and white copy of it on canvas. Attendees also bring a full page, full color print of the picture they submitted to use a reference while painting.
Aimee instructs the group on techniques and demonstrates how to do backgrounds like grass, and painting the eyes and fur. Over the next few hours, Aimee and other instructors would come around and help or give advice to painters.
Dr. Ku painted Dillon, their rambunctious Coon-Hound. Her husband, John, created a very artistic painting of their Koi from their outdoor pond.
Vet Assistant, Danielle, and her husband, Bobby, painted their crazy-but-loving girl, Vega, a Shepard mix.
Vet Tech, Judy, painted her mom's dog, Shadow, an adorable Cocker-Poodle. Judy's daughter, Akemi, painted their cute-but-troublemaker calico kitty, Kuzu.
It was a wonderful experience and everyone had a great time painting pictures of their beloved pets! If you are interested in attending the next Paint & Sip Fundraiser event, please contact Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org
