We are crazy about our pets!  Join us for TCAPS Spring Break, March 26-29 for four days of fun pet inspired projects with local artist and Pet Photographer, Taylor Featherstone.  Please read the descriptions for each day's activities.  We'd love to have you all four days, but if you can only make one or two, that is okay.  Please call Kristi at 941-9488 to register for individual classes.  The member cost is $40/day or $125/four days ($35 savings on member tuition!)  Non-member tuition is $60/day 

We're also offering a morning session for grades K-3

Monday, March 26
Pet Photographer, Taylor Featherstone, will show you how to take photos of your pet that will capture their personality!  Students can use a camera phone or a camera.  If your student does not have access to a camera we will have cameras to loan the students for use at Crooked Tree Arts Center.  Taylor will bring her dog, Darwin, to use for demonstration purposes.  Students that don't have a pet at home can take pictures of Darwin to use for the rest of the weeks activities!

Tuesday, March 27
Taylor Featherstone, is back for day two of pet photography.  She will show you how to edit your photos using free or under $5 apps on the phone.  If your student does not have a camera phone to use during class your student will share a photo with Taylor to use as examples during the class.

Wednesday, March 28
We will transform your favorite photo into a fun and funky paint-by-number.  Paint-by-Numbers are all the rage right now in the design world.  We will upload the photo and have it converted into a paint by number.  Each student will have options to create an individualized design.  The designs will be transferred to an 8x10 canvas to be painted.

Thursday, March 29
Paint your pet portrait!  Today's the day to bring your pet portrait to life on 9x12 canvas.  You will choose your color palette.  There are no rules, you can paint your pet portrait realistic or you can go wild and choose some funky colors.  If today is your only day to join camp, that is perfectly fine.  Please email a photo to Kristi@crookedtree.org that you would like to use for the portrait by March 19 so that the canvas can be prepped for you in advance.
