Frequently Asked Questions:
- When can I send in my photo? Where do I send it? Once you are registered, send your .jpeg photo(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include the name of the person who registered if different than yours. No need to contact us if you haven’t received the request for your photo. Please feel free to send it at any time! A reminder will be sent via email the week of the event and they will be due 3 days prior.
- How many pets can I paint on one canvas? We highly recommend only one pet. If you have painted with us before or have prior painting experience, you are welcome to have two, just know it will be a bit more challenging, especially if they are different colors.
- I am attending with a guest. Do we have to paint the same pet? Not at all! Each paid attendee can submit their own photo and will have their own canvas to paint.
- Are children allowed to paint? Our studio events are all ages, though we highly recommend ages 12 and up only for this event. Since everyone will be painting their own unique pet, this event does require a higher level of attention and detail. We encourage you to decide if your child will be able to enjoy and participate in the 3+ hours of instruction.
Important Cancellation Policies: Due to the amount of time needed to prepare the canvases, ONE WEEK’S NOTICE IS REQUIRED TO CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION (After this date, NO refunds or credits will be issued).
Tips on Choosing Your Photo!
We highly recommend only one pet per canvas. The artist will sketch your pet onto your canvas, from the image you send us. No background images will be included, so don’t worry about what’s behind your pet in the photo (you will choose your own background color). The ideal pet photo is high resolution (not blurry), with a clear image of your pet’s face. It does not have to be a professional photo though! Phone pics are usually just fine, if they are in focus.
The image will be sketched from the photo (we are not able to alter poses, etc). If your pet is dark in color, a photo in a well lit area helps to show the highlights and shadows! A black cat isn’t just a black cat – there are so many shades and textures! We will guide you every step of the way 🙂
SAMPLES OF GOOD (and NOT SO GOOD) PHOTOS
SAMPLES OF SUBMITTED PHOTO, PREPARED CANVAS and FINAL RESULT
my husband and I want to share in painting the same picture of our dog. Do we each have to pay for admission? We don’t want to separate photos
