Paint Your Pet Nights

Together with The Green Spot (Shoppes of Aksarben), Village Canvas and Cabernet will host a Paint Your Pet Night every month, with 15% from each registration supporting the good work of local pet rescue organizations.

The way it works: Find the month/day you are interested in on our calendar, and register/pay.  After you register, email a photo of your pet (ONE pet per canvas). Your canvas is sketched, so when you arrive the artist will walk you through the process of painting. The session is three hours in length.

Registration fee ($50/per painter) covers: pre-sketched canvas, everything needed for painting, the guidance of an artist, a complimentary drink (beer, wine, coffee, soda) a donation to the rescue group of the month, and a gift bag, courtesy of The Green Spot from the Shoppes of Aksarben. Classes are limited to 20 painters!
