“Until one has loved an animal,
a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
~ Anatole France
Pets. You gotta’ love em! We keep them for companionship, for comfort, for protection, and definitely for entertainment! Pets fill our lives with love, joy, fun, and mischief too!
Do you have quirky canines, capricious kitties, or fanciful feathered friends? Let’s capture our loyal and adorable critters in playful and whimsical ways with multiple art mediums!
Introducing Playful Pet Portraits:
In my latest art course, Playful Pet Portraits, I will teach you, your kids and teens simple techniques for painting your family pet(s) while exploring various artistic styles.
“My little dog – a heartbeat at my feet.”
~ Edith Wharton
Art is a vitally important learning tool in any classroom, whether public or home school. Children who create art – sketches, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and crafts – not only experience the satisfaction of self-expression, but also learn to think in new ways.
This is a 2-week e-Course which means classes will be taught via videos in a private, password-protected site. You can watch them on your own time and adjust them to fit your family’s schedule.
“Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.”
~ James Herriot

“Some people talk to animals.
Not many listen though. That’s the problem.”
~ A.A. Milne
This e-Course will be taught over two weeks, with detailed videos and supply lists of each project. We will explore simple techniques for capturing your pet in the artistic style and medium of your choice. Whether you have dogs, cats, bunnies, rodents, birds, fish, or reptiles, or several of each, we will explore them all. But I must draw the line at tarantulas, hissing cockroaches, or any other arthropod. (Dude! I don’t want to give myself nightmares!!!) 😮
“You think those dogs will not be in heaven!
I tell you they will be there long before any of us.”
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

~ George Eliot
