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 12/7/2013.  At the event on 12/14 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!!!!
