FAQ - for Paint your Pet
Can I paint more than one animal/pet on my canvas?
Given the time frame of the class, I recommend 1 pet per canvas. Yet you are more than welcome to paint 2 pets. (limited to 2 pets only)
-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 food, or wine/beer?
Yes you can, please be responsible
bring glasses, cups, plates & utensils
I have a wine opener @ studio
Can my friend come & watch?
Only paid students are allowed in class, unfortunately my studio is not able to accommodate extra guests, most of my classes are at capacity with paying students.
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 kids attend the class?
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 & 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 its a fun memory you both will always reference
48 hr cancellation policy?
You can get a refund or switch your date (up to 2 times) 48 hrs prior to the date of your class. Please email email@example.com with your order number and date you want to switch to. I understand that emergencies (death, illness, car accident, etc..) happen, please email me as soon as you can.
These classes are usually at capacity (8-10 students), and your materials prepped, unique to each student. A last minute cancel means that someone else, could of taken the class, so again email me asap so I can try to fill your spot.
I am aware that art is an elective fun thing for you, but for me, this is my business and the policy is in place to protect my business and your commitment.
The Value of Your Class?!?!
The Paint Your Pet class is a $250 workshop value that you get for $60. I understand that people will not do something because of the price tag, especially if they find it intimidating. I have taught this class for the last 5 years in San Diego, with over 4000 pets painted (and counting) I have witnessed all my students come in scared and nervous , and when they leave they are ear to ear smiles and have gained a new confidence.
During class YOU will realize that you :
1- Needed a break from reality
2- Are more creative than you realize
3- Need a creative outlet
4- Actually enjoyed the process of stepping outside you comfort zone
(this can be said after the completion of the class)
Skills you Will be Introduced to:
Lovejoy Creations has 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, (Feel free to check her yelp reviews)
There is no Right or Wrong way to paint.
Art is merely the capture of a feeling at the time it was created.
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.
Please email 2-3 in-focus photos at least 2 days prior to the event (sooner is better)
