Paint Your Pet

Paint a portrait of your own adorable pet at this BYO boozy art class.

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 next 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 Brush & Barrel's Paint Your Pet nights. How else will your favourite critter know that you love it if you don't paint their likeness?

Classes cost $60 — and, because you're not expected to sketch your pet first, you'll need to email through a photo of Fido beforehand. Brush & Barrel's in-house artist will then pre-sketch it on a 40 x 50-centimetre canvas, so all you need to do is paint and drink.

This is a BYO affair, so bring your own bottle of wine for liquid inspiration. You can also purchase food to be served to you during the session, too.

The next class with tickets currently available takes place at the Fortitude Valley studio (at Shop 12, 421 Brunswick Street) on Friday, July 17, with another session on Saturday, July 25. Or, you could head to B&B's Newstead site (at Shop 2, 22 Masters Street) on Saturday, July 25, Friday, July 31 or Saturday, August 8. A warning: unsurprisingly, these classes are popular and sell out fast, so getting in quickly is recommended.
