Pet Portraits 

with Bryan Wesley Thomas

Join Bryan for one (or more) of his Pet Portraits session and create a tribute to your favorite pet.

Bryan will use photographs (provided by participants) to create a basic outline of each pet on individual 8"x10" or 16"x20" canvases. Participants will then complete their pet's portrait through learning how to translate a reference photo into simple value shapes, match colors using acrylics, render accurate details such as fur texture and markings, and capture their pet's spirit in their own individual style.

Choose between three dates, all on Saturdays from 1-4pm (April 6, 13, and 20). Registration is $55, and most materials will be provided. Sessions are limited to 10 students each

Class Dates: Saturdays, April 13

Time: 1-4pm
