Event Series Event Series: Draw Live Animals

Draw Live Animals

June 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Three children paint with watercolors at a table in the Youth Programs classroom.

Students in grades 6+, join Miss Amanda and professional artist, Piper Castles, from River Tree Arts for some artistic, animal fun! In this camp, children will focus on core skills of drawing while observing live pets here at AWS. Students will build their drawing skill set from the ground up, starting with line of action, building up shapes, learning to check for accuracy by measuring, and adding value and details. Drawing skills are the basis for all art, and learning to draw from life is so much fun!

Monday, June 24 – Friday, June 28 (5 days). 9am – 12pm.
50% of proceeds come directly to AWS!
River Tree Members: $235 | Non-Members: $260 (all supplies included!)

𝐇𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐲 𝐌𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐃𝐚𝐲! As a reminder, AWS' Adoption Center and Veterinary Clinic are closed today. Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to care for the animals, but we will not be manning phones or checking emails. We hope you and your canine friend can get out and enjoy the holiday, no matter the weather! 

Remember, it’s never a good idea to leave your pets alone in a locked car, even for only a short time. The guide below shows just how quickly the inside of a car can get dangerously hot, even in mild temperatures like today. That means that even “just for a minute” can be long enough to have devastating effects for your pet. In most cases, it’s best to just leave Fido at home rather than risk their health and safety. Let’s keep summertime safe and fun for all!
We have a Happy Homes story about a lovely little cat named Flora who reminds us that even the shy, scared, or timid pets deserve a chance at a loving home. More often than not, once an animal gets adopted, they blossom into a truly outgoing and friendly companion who just needed a home environment to shine! Here's what Flora's parents have to say about her! 

"Flora joined our family about two years ago, and has brought immense joy, comfort, and affection to us since then. The day that I came into to AWS, the member I met with mentioned that this blue-eyed beauty was very, very shy. Nobody other than those caring for her had any luck getting her to trust. With another shy kitty at home, I knew to enter the room cautiously. I remember that Flora was curled up in a corner under a cat tree. I quietly sat on the floor just to get a good look at her. She perked her head up, crawled over, and promptly laid down in my lap. If I hadn’t already had my heart set on her, that would’ve sealed the deal right then and there!
Now, this kitty is THE definition of a cuddle bug. She sleeps in her humans bed each night, purrs louder than any kitty I’ve ever known, and demands attention vocally if it isn’t given in a time deemed appropriate to her. She has two other kitty friends, along with her sister that she loves to play with, and she spends her days either lounging in the sun, or curled up right next to her people. Thank you AWS, for everything you do!"
