I am that basic dog mom that is all about her pup, or in my case, pups. Smiley and Pablo are both rescues from the Brooklyn ACC. They weren’t always living the best lives, but now they are because my husband and I are obsessed. Although we are both artsy, we cannot draw or paint at all. So we were very nervous to join the Paint Your Pet class at Create Color Art Studio.
This was my second class at Create Color Art Studio and I absolutely love the space. It is decorated with all sorts of art in every medium imaginable. It is a great place for ladies night, a date, a family outing and a kid’s party. The owner is a friendly and creative lady that will inspire you to create! Even though she only teaches classes as a side gig on top of her full time job, her passion for art is evident and contagious.
This Paint Your Pet class was actually taught by her son Dylan, an art school graduate and amazing painter. Before arriving at the class, we all had to send in our pet photos so that he could sketch them on the canvas. As I previously mentioned, ANYONE can achieve a great paining of their pet here. They set you up to succeed!
We sat down with our wine (it’s BYOB and wine is generally allowed) and began painting. Our teacher told us how to start, helped us mix colors and gave us tips the entire time. Whenever we got stuck, he would offer to sit down and take over, potentially fixing any mistakes. At the very end he also helped us make the eyes look more realistic. There were about six of us in the class and everyone’s paintings turned out amazing! Here are ours:
