Earlier this month, we welcomed a group of kids ages 6 and up to ARL main for a special paint-your-pet event!

The “Petcasso” workshop was led by artist/illustrator Kathryn Finney, who has been a longtime friend of the ARL (she painted the portraits in our front lobby!). She is also a published children’s author — check out her book, Little Louie, here! Each participant brought in a picture of their pet or favorite animal, and Kathryn guided them through the steps to produce a masterpiece.

By the end of the day, each of our artistes-in-training had a beautiful work of art to bring home and share with their best friend.
