Pup Portraits

Thursdays, August 6, 13, 20, & 27
6:30 PM — 9:00 PM
Frist Learning Center Painting Studio

Discover your inner pupcasso while creating a portrait of your furry (or scaly or feathery) friend! No previous painting experience is necessary — your pet’s portrait will be sketched onto a canvas before you are guided through the painting process. All materials and equipment will be provided to create a 14×18” acrylic portrait of your pet to take home. While painting aprons will be supplied, participants are encouraged to wear clothing they do not mind getting dirty.

Capacity is limited to 10 participants to allow for social distancing. Please note that visitors are required to wear face masks while indoors at Cheekwood.

Advanced registration is required and closes two days before each workshop to allow sketching time. Registration includes night admission to Cheekwood’s gardens (5 PM – 10 PM).

Please upload a high-resolution image of your pet with your registration. Headshot images of your pet from the shoulders up with uncluttered backgrounds work best. One photo per participant. One pet per photo.

Not-Yet Members: $65; Members: $52
