Paint Your Pup
Volunteer Wheeling invites you to turn your pooch into an original work of art at Paint Your Pup Paint and Sip on Sunday, June 11 at the Wheeling Artisan Center.
Choose from one of two sessions where an artist will guide you step-by-step to create a custom portrait of your pet. No experience is necessary and all materials are provided!
The first session will be held from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., and the second from 2 – 5 p.m. Each session is limited to 30 participants. The cost is $75 per portrait.
After you are signed up, we will send out an email with a link where you can provide a photo of your pet. A photo will need to be provided by Friday, June 2 so the artists can prepare your canvas. All sketches will be drawn in portrait orientation. Please keep this in mind when selecting your photo. You may only paint one pet on a canvas.
All portraits from this event will become a piece of public art to be added to the Fitzsimmons Family Dog Park in East Wheeling! All completed portraits will be digitized and added to the public art installation at the dog park which was revealed at Volunteer Wheeling’s FidoFest.
