What could be more fun for your child than painting a one-of-a-kind portrait of his or her special pet? Email a photo of your pet and local artist and teacher, Ammo will help with a starting sketch and painting instructions on event day.
When: Saturday, October 15, 4pm - 6:30pm (Check-in begins at 3:45pm)
Where: Berkeley Animal Care Services, 1 Bolivar Drive, Berkeley, CA 94710
Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 20 participants, so sign up early! Age range: 8 and up. Parents, join in on the fun and sign up to paint too!
How It Works:
With the guidance of local artist, Ammo R., your child will paint a one-of-a-kind portrait of your pet.
After you sign up, send us a photo of the pet you or your child would like to paint. Ammo will sketch the outline of your pet onto a canvas so that they will be all ready to start painting when you arrive. During the event, she will take your child through the painting process step-by-step -- from mixing colors to brush stroke techniques -- all while encouraging your creative expression. They will have a lot of fun!!
This event is $39 per person (supplies inclusive). All proceeds benefit Friends of Berkeley Animal Care Services.
Friends of BACS provides all the supplies needed, including paint brushes, acrylic paint, easels, canvases, and aprons to protect their clothes.
After you have registered, make sure to send us a favorite digital photo of your pet.
- We ask that you keep the image to ONE pet due to time constraints.
- Make sure it's clear, well-lit and truly captures your pet's adorable personality.
- You should be able to see the eyes, nose, body and other features clearly.
- A more traditional pose is suggested versus one with an odd or weird angle.
- If you aren't sure which is the best photo to select, you can send in a few and Ammo Art will select the best candidate for your painting.
IMPORTANT - Email your high resolution images by Sunday, October 9, 2016 to email@example.com.
Please note: Low resolution images or images that print out smaller then 5" x 7" are NOT recommended as they will not translate onto the canvas well. When you email your image, be sure to include the name(s) you registered under so that we can make match your images to your registration.
If you have any questions, please contact Kiem Sie, Friends of BACS Board Member, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
