We will explore and create projects emphasizing all kinds of pets! Our first project will be a painting portrait of your own pet. If you do not have a pet you may use an image of a family member or friends pet. A picture of any pet you like may be used as well. Photos of these pets are to be emailed in advance prior to the start of this session as canvases will need to be prepped. We will also sculpt in clay and use other mediums to create images of various animals we consider pets.
