Paw Print Painting

Last Saturday I taught a painting class to a great group of people at San Clemente Art Supply Shop.  

Most of the class had not painted before however their finished paintings were very good and their enthusiasm was wonderful.  

The students were given non toxic children's paint to create the prints from their pets paws. They stamped the paw prints on canvas and brought them to the class. They were very creative in the different compositions they arranged on the canvas and the methods they used to get their pets to cooperate.*

In class we used acrylic paint to create flower bouquets and designs around the paw prints. A good time was had by all. 

Wonderful students and art! 

Wonderful students and art! 

* If you try this at home with your cat, the best tip I got was to wrap your cat in a blanket during the paw printing.
