Class will be held generally each week with six weeks on followed by two weeks rest. Rita Paradis will inform and remind participants of the schedule in advance each week.
Students should bring a color photo of your pet. It is easier to work from if the photo is enlarged. The photo must be in focus and should have interesting shadows. Photos taken with a flash wash out the features & the form and prove difficult to work with. We will have basic materials to help you get started, however, we recommend that you purchase professional grade acrylic primary colors, brushes, and colored pencils, paper and small canvasses.
