The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter provides 24-hour animal rescue and is Santa Cruz County’s only full service, open admission Shelter.

The Shelter team is supported by hundreds of volunteers and foster care families who provide thousands of hours of assistance to SCCAS staff. We rescue and assure temporary shelter, veterinary and humane care for approximately 5,000 stray, unwanted, abandoned, mistreated, neglected and injured animals every year. The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter believes in helping the greatest number of animals with our available resources.

Paint Your Pet ~ WARHOL STYLE! 

The iconic and reknown Artist Andy Warhol is a Pop Art legend.  He created 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 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 colors of the rainbow and channel our inner Warhol!  Let's PAINT!

Send us a high resolution HEAD SHOT photograph of your pet that has clarity and good lighting and we will hand sketch the image of your pet onto a 12 x 12" stretched canvas for you prior to the class!  During the class, we will guide you through the step by step process of creating a colorful painted portrait of your pet!  Please do know that the better the photograph, the better your drawing and painting will be!  Background elements in your original photo will be eliminated all together.  THIS CLASS IS FOR ONLY ONE PET.  We will have an 4x6 picture of your pet for you to paint from.  

This event includes wine, beverages, appetizers and a raffle!!  It also includes professional art instruction throughout the event
