There is no Right or Wrong way to paint. Art is merely the capture of a feeling at the time it was created. 

We brought this class to you with the intent of bringing you more fun ways to honor the bond between pets and their owners. This class is delivered in a simplistic and encouraging manner, great for those that have never painted as well as those that have. Lovejoy is a very gifted and positive instructor, she will guide you through not only the steps of painting your pet but also through the mental steps of self acceptance as you do something you have never done before. Trust; as Lovejoy walks you through both processes.

Painting is like handwriting, everyone has their own style and with practice you will develop skills and a comfort level. Painting is highly therapeutic and healing.  Many people in my classes have painted one of their pets that had passed; All stated how much better they felt after honoring their loved one.

The night of your class:

  • Bring a positive and willing attitude
  • Lovejoy will give an intro and demonstration of the brushes & paint palette
  • Choose your back ground colors (your favorite color or something to match your house)
  • Lovejoy will give another demonstration on painting of the colors of the fur
  • Paint the various shades of your pet
  • Lovejoy will give a demonstration for painting the eyes and nose(illustrated cards will be available to reiterate the eye demonstration)
  • You will accomplish a lot in 3 hours of painting, it is a process. Be kind to yourself especially if you are doing this for the first time ever. There is no such thing as perfect in art, but you will find comfort in practice.
  • Lovejoy is more than happy to put on a few final touches on your painting at the end of class.
  • If you find the eyes overwhelming to paint, do not worry. Lovejoy will help you.

Please email 2-3 in-focus photos at least 2 days prior to the event (sooner is better) at [email protected] This photo will be sketched onto your 11x14 canvas. If you do not email your photo, then we can not prepare your canvas and steps, and she will not have time to do that during class. Choose clear and in-focus photos of your pet. 

PLEASE NOTE:
Kids 8-13 can attend class with an adult. Both must purchase a seat and both paint. With this age range the kid needs to have this experience with you. No exceptions, you CAN NOT sign your kid up and watch while they  paint, my studio and classes are not set up for that.

Kids 13 and older are welcome to attend the class by themselves, though I do recommend taking the class together as it's a fun memory you both will always reference.

FAQ

Why does GPS take me to the wrong place? I honestly do not know.  I have contacted: Places, google, maps & input my info.  Many businesses in Liberty Station have the same problem.  So we have to go old school and look for landmarks & cross streets.

Lovejoy Creations Studio 2690 Historic Decatur #201 cross streets: Historic Decatur /Dewy. Across from Ace hardware, Slater 50/50 & Con Pane

What is your class size? At my studio Max 12, average 8-10At your location up to 60

Can I bring food, wine? Yes, please be responsible bring  glasses, cups, plates & utensilsI have a wine opener @ studio

Can my friend come & watch? Unfortunately my studio is not able to accommodate extra guests, most of my classes are at capacity with paying students.

I want to fix or paint over something in my painting, what can I do? Please check out one of the monthly open studio sessions. You bring the canvas,  the rest of the materials are supplied ($10/hr)

I want to frame my canvas, what do you recommend? Go for it!. When purchasing your frame let one of the store employees know, so they can show you the extra hardware you need ($2) to accommodate the width of the canvas

Do you teach kids? Yes, email to arrange a private painting party for your kid. Kids 12 & older are more than welcome to sign up for a class by themselves. Kids 8-14 can attend with an adult

Can I switch my date? Yes, You can switch 1 times before the 48 hr deadline. Your 2nd & 3rd switch is an additional $10

Where are the San Diego Humane Society classes? Please check your SDHS class, classes are offered at multiple locations. Classes are held in San Diego, Escondido, Oceanside & Liberty StationPet/Animal Classes

Can I paint more than one animal/pet on my canvas? Given the time frame of the class, I recommend 1 pet per canvas. You are more than welcome to paint 2 pets.-If both pets are in the same photo - NO extra charge-If I have to combine 2 photos it is an ADDITIONAL $10 (bring cash to class)* I don’t want you to feel rushed, please keep in mind that I also run monthly open studios, you are more than welcome to bring your painting to one of those to finish

What kind of photo should I send? Photos need to be clear, in-focus & good lighting. The best photo will be chosen. If you have a preference please let me know when you send the photos

Can I bring my dog, it’s a service animal? Given that my studio is so small, and with my lease requirements, I’m not allowed to have animals in my studio.

Can I bring my pet, it's an emotional support animal? Please leave your pets at home so you can focus on painting. If everyone brought their pet it would be very distracting for the class. For emotional support animals, painting is a form of creative therapy, you will gain more benefit if your animal stays at home and you focus on you.

Can I bring my child to the class? You are more than welcome to purchase a seat for your child, 8-13 years old, to paint their pet. I recommend kids 12 & older for attending a regular class. I do not have room for extra people in my studio other than paying students. Please make arrangements for your childcare during the class, so you can concentrate on painting.

Can I bring my own brushes? Yes, please do.

Can you sketch a canvas for me that I can work on at home? Yes, for the full set11x14 canvas + sketch + 2 reference materials = $15

Will you work with an organization or animal shelter I am affiliated with? Yes, Please email [email protected]


Materials

What type of paint do you use? Acrylic paint - water-based

What type of paint do you recommend that I purchase for myself? Liquitex basics are a good student brand to start with. The consistency is similar to what we use in class. You can purchase @Micheal's, Blicks & online
