 Paint Your Pet ~ WARHOL STYLE! 

The iconic and well-known artist Andy Warhol is a pop art legend. He created a mass production of images printed and painted over and over again in bold colors.  He used Marilyn Monroe as one of his most popular mass-production subjects, and he colored her image in every color imaginable.

This class is a colorful twist on our classic "old school" version of Paint Your Pet which is more realistic in construction and color. In this class, we will concentrate on all the colors of the rainbow and channel our inner Warhol!
