This year, because of bronchitis I’m not going to be able to sketch dogs at Wet Paint for Paws On Grand. But I wanted to give you a heads up about this event because there are going to be some great artists on hand ready to make quick portraits of your dog, cat, bat, lizard, bird, hedgehog…
The Pet Portrait Sketching at Wet Paint runs from 12-3pm on Sunday, August 5.
This event has always been well attended in the past so I recommend you get there early.
The portraits are free, but there is a suggested donation—that goes to People and Pets Together. This organization offers assistance to families during economic hardships by providing pet food to food shelves, hosting subsidized vaccination clinics, working closely with vets to offset costs, and running a pet food shelf and resource center. They support relationships that people have with their pets so they don’t have to surrender them in difficult economic times.
Show up to donate to a great cause and provide the artists with fun models—nothing makes the time fly by faster than some handsome pets to sketch.
You might even want to take a turn in Wet Paint and check out all the great art supplies!
Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 5, noon to 3 p.m.!
Please note: Virginia McBride at Wet Paint says she is still looking for a couple more artists. If you love drawing animals email Virginia@wetpaintart.com for more information on how you can volunteer. You will have a great time!
