Booze-sipping wannabe Picassos, take note: it's your time to shine. While there are regular classes and even entire businesses devoted to the concept, Brisbane's latest excuse to get creative while indulging in a beverage or two is offering something different — instead of painting any old picture, you can whip up a portrait of your favourite four-legged creature.

Keen on having a few drinks, picking up a paintbrush and creating a masterpiece that makes a star out of your beloved cat, dog, goldfish, budgie, rabbit, hermit crab or whatever other pet you might have? That's one of the options at MK Gallery's Paint, Sip & Nibble nights, which are taking place on various dates at Toasted Cafe. You can also opt for a stock image of an elephant, horse, koala, alpaca, ladies on a beach or other arty options, but where's the fun in that?

Classes cost $90 if you're painting your pet (you'll just need to email through a photo of them beforehand) and $75 if you're going with one of the standard paintings — and if you're keen, you'd best get in quick. After selling out numerous sessions between July and September, the gallery is currently taking bookings for 5.45pm on October 6 and 27, plus November 3.

Tapas will be supplied as part of your ticket, but you'll need to bring your own plonk (or you can buy coffees, milkshakes and soft drinks onsite).
