My kiddos love art and they love pets, so it’s no surprise that they are super excited about learning how to make fun pet portraits using mixed media art.
I received complimentary access to this course for review purposes; see disclosure for details.
You probably already know that my five year-old and my ten year-old are pretty much obsessed with all things artsy, but you may not know how much they love pets (our pets, your pets, potential pets, and never-gonna-happen pets).
In Playful Pet Portraits, the latest mixed media workshop from Alisha Gratehouse, their two favorite things come together. They get to celebrate their love for pets through fun mixed media pet portraits. How fun is that?!?
Playful Pet Portraits:
Celebrating Pets with Mixed Media Fun
Playful Pet Portraits Mixed Media Workshop is a two-week e-Course that explores simple techniques for capturing pets in multiple artistic styles and mediums. That means your kids can follow the templates provided for these mixed media projects or personalize them by using their own pets (or those never-gonna-happen pets) for inspiration.
Here’s a look at the art forms your pet lovers can explore through Playful Pet Portraits:
- Collage art
- Charcoal and gesso
- Negative space
- Oil pastels
- Palette knife painting (my Bob Ross fans are especially fired up about this one!)
- Watercolor painting
- Acrylic painting
This workshop teaches kids and teens to use these mediums to capture pets and their unique personalities. The best part is how it all happens through detailed, but fun video instruction. In fact, I recently mentioned how much my kids love these videos on Instagram. They get seriously cracked up when they’re working though these projects. 🙂
