Paint your Pet: Multi-Pet Household edition
Worcester Animal Rescue League – If you’ve got more than one animal in your home or in your heart, this is the class for you. And it’s a fun way to benefit the Worcester Animal Rescue League. We’ll be painting multiple pets in a simple, easy style on an 8x10 canvas, following a step-by-step process built on a foundation of basic geometric shapes. Slightly different than our “Paint Your Pet” classes, this time we’ll be representing your finned, furry or feathered friends in a style that’s more like a cartoon. It will be easy and fun! No experience required and all supplies, as usual, will be provided. Just wear something sloppy to paint in and bring your sense of humor. IMPORTANT/PLEASE READ: Clicking the “Going” button on the Facebook event is a great way to drum up excitement, but it will not reserve your spot. **All questions and registrations must be done by email.** The cost is $35 (exact change / cash is strongly preferred for speedy check-in, paid the night of the event) and each class can accommodate only 10 people, so sign up ASAP at jennilesart@gmail.com with the word “Multi Pet” in the subject line. To help Jen help you, send a “head shot” of your pet no later than Friday, September 15.
