It’s time for all local artists, students and art enthusiasts to get your canvases for this year’s Art for the Paws community outreach program and shelter fundraiser.
People from all creative backgrounds and all ages are encouraged to participate. Past submissions have included photography, three-dimensional and sculptural work, assemblages, fiber work, painting, writing and collaborative works.
* Each artist must fill out a Participation Form and sign it.
* Up to 2 canvases per artist.
* All artwork must be created on a 6” x 6” canvas obtained from Helping Paws or a partner location. No other canvases will be accepted. We pre-number them and only have space for 350.
* We ask for a $5 donation to cover the cost of each canvas.
* Artwork does not have to be just animals.
Canvases are now available at the following locations (these businesses also serve as drop-off points for finished artwork.) Please call ahead or check their website for business hours before going to locations.
