The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist

Virtual Paint Your Pet

No experience necessary! I will demonstrate techniques and provide detailed instructions for blending backgrounds, mixing colours, applying paint and rendering fur, so that you will finish the class with a unique painting, completely your own!

!!!IMPORTANT!!!

DEADLINE TO SIGN UP/SUBMIT YOUR PHOTO is 11:59 PM MST on April 10th, 2021.

You will need to email me a couple of photos of your pet by the deadline (see above) and I will choose the best one for a portrait. My email will be provided in the confirmation email. Once I make a digital sketch (no later than April 13th), I will email it back to you, so that you can either print it out on heavy paper (either at home or at any print shop, e.g. Staples) or transfer it to the canvas using one of the methods below. Make sure this is done before the class starts.

Photo reference notes:

- Any animal is fine (dogs, cats, bunnies, lizards, ostriches, you name it!)

- Sharp, close-up, well-lit photos work best.

- Only 1 pet per photo/ticket is included. Contact me at yulia (dot) tsinko (at) gmail (dot) com if you want to add another animal.

- I will format the image to look good on 8.5" x 11" piece of heavy paper. Let me know if you are using a different format.


 !!!IMPORTANT!!! OTHER SUPPLIES YOU WILL NEED:

- a canvas or heavy paper

- acrylic paint ( white, black, red, yellow and blue)

- paper plate (or a piece of plastic/cardboard)

- water cup

- a variety of brushes ( I recommend at a minimum a large flat brush , a medium square brush (it's called a "bright") and a small detail brush) 

- paper towels

Easel is optional, as you can lay your canvas flat on your table.   Another optional tool that may come in handy is a hair dryer to dry wet layers before subsequent paint application.

ZOOM

You will also need to install ZOOM prior to the event. You will get a one time link to access the event. You can log on up to 1/2 hour prior to the event start.

Your host

Yaymaker Host Yulia Tsinko located in Calgary, AB

I love coffee, travelling and horror movies. I have always been drawing and painting as far back as I remember, taking every opportunity to learn and improve my art along the way. I am very excited to share my knowledge and passion for art and creativity as a Yaymaker! I strongly believe that everyone can make beautiful art. It always lights my heart to see all the beauty that is produced by people who are convinced that they don't know how to draw a stick figure.
