I am proposing the "Puppy Picasso" activity. Artist are known for their unique style and techniques. Your puppy's art is unique too because only it’s paw can create the very special art work that we will create during our session.
SET UP (30 mins)
The theme for the painting session is already decided before hand. Themes range from flowers, rainbows, animals, etc. I will set up all of the canvases and water base paint stations, using non toxic children’s paint that is safe for the dogs. Next we greet each dog to evaluate their mood. Pet parents will be provided painter’s aprons. Lastly we will set up at a paint session and ready to proceed.
PAINTING SESSION (1.5 hours)
I will brief the group on the day’s theme, and provide an example of the end goal for the day’s session. I will also provide best practices on how to dip the dog’s paw in paint and apply it to the canvas. Next we begin the session. I will walk the parents through the painting session. Informing them of which paint colours and techniques to use to accomplish the final look.
BREAK DOWN (30 mins)
Parents will be directed to sinks to wash up themselves and their dog’s paws. I will provide degreaser and wash cloths.
