Paint Your Pet

Thursday 26th May

Bedford Rowing Club

Paint Your Pet. Come to the Bedford Rowing Club and Paint Your Pet. It is amazing what you can do with some paint, brushes and imagination. Come along and paint a portrait of your pet – it can be a cat, a dog, a budgie or even a horse. If you don’t have a pet, then paint your favourite animal. Anyone can paint, you just need a desire said Bob Ross, so come to this great evening and show yourself you can. 

Tickets are from £32.00 downwards, and at the end of the evening you will take away your own personal masterpiece of your own little family member. The ticket price includes ALL materials and equipment, and you will be able to purchase an optional frame for £10.00 if you want.

It doesn’t matter in the least if you haven’t picked up a paint brush for years, because you will walk away with your own unique piece of artwork. Our resident artist will take you, step-by-step, through the process of turning your blank canvas into your own picture of a much loved member of the family. With a glass in one hand, and a paintbrush (or a cotton bud) in the other, your skills will transfer painlessly to the canvas on your easel. So power up your inner Picasso and come and join us.

We provide everything that you need…… a smaller than normal A3 sized canvas, easel, brushes, paints, aprons, music and a great atmosphere where you can create to your heart’s content.

It doesn’t matter in the least if you haven’t picked up a paint brush for years or maybe even never, because you will walk away with your own unique piece of artwork. Our resident artist will take you, step-by-step, through the process of turning your blank canvas into your own special masterpiece. With a glass in one hand, and a paintbrush (or a cotton bud) in the other, your skills will transfer painlessly to the canvas on your easel. So power up your inner Picasso, come and join us and paint your own version of your furry friend. 

Paint Your Pet – The Way To Do It

A slightly different way of doing things this time.

You will need to email me a high quality photograph of the furry friend you want to paint. It really needs to be a head and shoulders image looking at the camera, as this way you will be able to paint the most important parts – the eyes. Download Russell’s Photo Guide For Pet Portraits.

I will take the image and turn it into a properly sized black and white line drawing that you will be able to trace on to your canvas.  I will then take you step by step through the process of tracing your picture on to the canvas, under-painting the pet, painting the background of your choice, and then finishing off with the fine details.  If you want to change the colours to suit your home décor, then feel free to do so – bring your own wall paint if you wish. 

Yopu can paint in colour, black and what or surreal if you wish.

The event starts at 19.00 pm but it helps if you arrive around 15 minutes early to grab a seat, grab a drink and grab an easel. We start at 19.00, and will definitely by finished by 22.00.

Although we provide aprons, it might be worth wearing old clothes (just in case).

Special Note

Tickets for Paint Your Pet start at £32.00 and a quantity discount applies. The price does not include drinks or refreshments – these can be bought at the bar, and I believe that CAKE will be available to buy – that reminds me that I still need to pay for the cake I had in March.

Car Parking

There is plenty of car parking under, and next to the Rowing Club.

Amazing Artist Scheme

We now have our Amazing Artist scheme. We give you a card and we stamp it for every event you come to, including our day events. When you have 8 stamps we give you your next Paint Night free. It is our way of saying Thank You.

A Paint Night Party is a social event first, and an art lesson second. It’s Fun Art set to music, not Fine Art done dull.

If you have any questions then please contact Russell Collins

Please go to the Facebook Events page (opens in new tab), like and share.

We look forward to meeting you.
