Watercolor Pet Portraits: Wednesday, Dec 28 @ 9 am – 12 pm
This three-hour program is for students ages 11-18 years old$50 for the 1 event
Explore the world of watercolors while painting your very own pet portrait.
Led by Amanda Zimmerman, AWS’ Youth Program Coordinator, and guest teacher, fine artist and professor Suzanne Demeo, students will learn some foundational skills of watercolor painting, color mixing, and learn how to trace an image directly onto watercolor paper using a window and the power of the sun! Students will use fine art quality watercolor paper, paints and brushes (provided) to learn how to render a pet’s portrait from a color photo.
During class breaks, students may visit with Norman the resident guinea pig and other companion animals. Miss Amanda will also do a mini-lesson on reading animal body language.
Brushes, paints, and watercolor paper will be provided for students to use during the class. Students can take home their portrait at the end of the session. Or students may opt to paint an AWS pet and donate their work to be gifted to the pet’s new family once adopted.
