Learn how to capture the spirit of your pets through painting, and energize the entire canvas! Students should select 3-5 photos to bring to this workshop, where Teaching Artist Lauren Beauchner will assist them in choosing the one best suited for a painting. Painting techniques including composition, underpainting and building the portrait in layers and textures will be taught. In pet paintings, it?s very important to capture the character in the eyes and a sense of movement & life because they are so spirited and energetic!

She graduated from Lehigh Valley Charter School for the Arts in 2010 and went on to receive her BFA in Painting from Kutztown University. Lauren is the Social Media Marketing Assistant at Bethlehem House Gallery and is very inspired by the thriving art community of the Lehigh Valley.
