The class is led by Lizzy Mailho, an experienced artist who will guide you through proper color mixing and painting techniques. You’ll pick up tips on capturing fur textures, life-like eyes, and realistic details in this class for painters at all skill levels!
NO experience necessary! A sketch of your pet will be pre-drawn to get you started!
Attendees will need to submit a high-quality photo of their pet to Lizzy ASAP. Your photo will be used to create a starter sketch and will be printed for reference during the workshop.
All materials are provided.
About the Instructor:
Originally from the Bay Area, Lizzy Mailho is currently living in Sacramento, California, working as an artist and instructing painting classes. Graduating from Chico State with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art, she studied many art forms but had an emphasis in painting and drawing. She is constantly evolving her style and technique, whether she is painting a traditional portrait or illustration. Her work is inspired by childhood memories of stories, fairy tales, and folklore, all being seen through adult eyes. The results can be humorous and slightly dark, but always whimsical and feminine. Paintings or illustrations often depict ethereal beings living in made up locations, that leave some sort of mystery to the viewer.
