Saturday, March 29
If painting still lifes of fruit bowls doesn’t inspire your inner Van Gogh, this should do the trick. Join us for a group painting party inside the historic Kovler Lion House, where your live model will be African lion Sahar!
You’ll create your own feline-themed masterpiece to bring home with you. No experience or tools necessary. Just bring yourself, your imagination and a friend or two. We’ll supply the rest: canvases, brushes, paints and easels—and a professional instruction team to guide you through the process.
We’ll also provide a cash bar serving mimosas, bloody marys and wine.
Lion House keepers will be on hand to answer questions about the animals and help you brush up on your big cat anatomy.
