We have a very special event planned for Saturday 6/21/14 from 6pm to 8pm.  Paint for the Pugs will be a PERSON ONLY event where you will be guided through creating an acrylic painting of your own pug (or one of ours if you prefer).  


This event will run from 6pm to 8pm at the Club House (located at 2900 Manvel Road Pearland, TX).  There will be a $50 charge to participate (paid in advance), which will cover all your supplies and instruction.  Payments can be paid in cash or check at any upcoming events or via paypal at, and indicate Paint for the Pugs in comments.


The amazing and beyond talented Karen Rudat will be creating a stencil/transfer from a photo of your very own pug (she recommends face shots for best results).  You will need to email her your photo or you can post it here in this thread by no later than 6/12/14.  At the event on 6/21/14 you will be able to transfer the drawing based upon your photo to a gallery-wrapped canvas, and then go on to paint your own pug masterpiece!!!!



This is the second time we have done this event and last time we sold out!!!  Spaces are limited, so sign up now!  If you participated last year PLEASE post photos of your artwork in this event so everyone can see!
