1-Day "How to paint your dog" Workshop


2021 in-person workshops will be mostly held in my studio in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.  There will be occasion where I travel to deliver the workshops postponed from 2020 (Cardiff, Cannock, Beverley & Ulverston)

All materials are included: Paints, brushes and canvases!  You get to take home your dog painting too! ❤️

The day starts at 10am and runs through until 4:30pm.  A confirmation, venue details, what to expect and what to bring email will land in your email inbox 1 week before your booked session.

Throughout the day Sam demonstrates every stage and you follow along, you're also supported by various 1-2-1 sessions through the day too.  Most people who come on the workshop haven't painted since school and end up really chuffed with their characters at the end of the day.

Please be careful selecting your date as it is not always possible to accommodate requests to swap bookings.


There's currently two online options for the "How to paint your dog" available:

🎨  Self paced online access - The course is created in this way so you can really get stuck into the stages but also adapt them around your current time commitments.  An email from Sam will arrive in your email inbox to enable your access to the course.
