Leawood Arts Council to hold Pooch Paint 2017

The Leawood Arts Council in coordination with Parks and Recreation are pleased to present our second annual Pooch Paint. It’s true; your four-legged family members can paint too!

The event will run Saturday, June 3rd from 9:00 am to Noon. Dogs will paint in an enclosed area near the entrance to Leawoof Dog Park, at the east end of Leawood City Park.

The process is simple; your artist will step in paint and then walk on a prepared canvas to create a one-of-a-kind work of art. They (or their owners) can select 1 to 4 of their favorite colors to paw paint their “master” piece, suitable for framing.

All painting supplies are provided. Your dog artists will be assisted in applying paint to their own paws. Paints are non-toxic, washable watercolor. Volunteers will remove paint from paws at the onsite cleaning station at the end of the painting session.

The painter’s owners will take home the paintings. All painters must register, sign waivers and pay a $10 fee at the event. Cash or checks only please.
We suggest that you and your artist enjoy Leawoof while the paint dries on the canvas for easier transportation.

Non-pet owners are welcome to attend Pooch Paint 2017 to watch the artists work.
Proceeds from Pooch Paint 2017 will go to the Leawood Foundation, a 501c(3) to fund future amenities to the Leawoof Dog Park therefore your donations are tax deductible.

For more information or to purchase art, please contact the Cultural Arts Coordinator at 913-663-9157 or go to www.leawood.org.
