This class is a fundraiser benefiting The Hospice of Baton Rouge Pet Peace of Mind. At this class you will get to paint your pet! In order to paint a picture of your pet you must register and follow the directions below by September 10th. Anyone enrolling after September 10th will paint our "Man's Best Friend" painting (pictured below).
Directions to submit a photo
After completing your registration, please email a high quality photo of your pet to PaintingandPinot@gmail.com. The best photos only have your pet in the photo. We must receive your photo by September 10th in order to process it for class. Please include only 1 pet in your photo (sorry, you have to choose!). When saving your photo, please save it as your first and last name. We will confirm receipt of all photos so if you don't get a receipt, we probably didn't get your photo!
How to choose a photo
The best photo will be a close up of your pet in good lighting. There should be nothing in front of your pet (your arm, couch, pillows, a fence, etc). Please do not send any photos directly from Instagram as the resolution is not high enough. The background of your picture should not be too similar to your pet.
We will be doing our magic to simplify your pet photos. That means that we will change the colors so that your pet can be put on canvas. With that being said, your all black pet will not be all black - they will have some blue, purple, and gray. Your all white pet will not be all white - they will have some gray, pink, and green. We have to use different colors to show depth and to make our paintings interesting.
