Fundraiser – The Symphony of OP RF – Registration Ended

February 9 at 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm CST



The Sipping Muse is partnering with The Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest for a Paint Your Pet fundraising event. The Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest, located in Oak Park, is dedicated to providing an opportunity for culture and classical music to be experienced in the surrounding area.  For more information on this organization, visit website at https://symphonyoprf.org/.  Or contact Cheryl Flinn at 708-383-7819, cflinn234@hotmail.com.

This event is a Paint Your Pet session.  Guest provides photo of their furry loved one ahead of time, expert artists sketch on a canvas, and art instruction provided at the event to complete a portrait of your pet.

Paint Fee is $45 per person, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting The Symphony.   The more people who attend, the higher portion of the ticket sale benefits the organization.  Fee includes all paint supplies, an apron, a pre-sketched drawing of your pet on a 12×16 canvas.  Multiple Paint Your Pet expert art instructors will guide guests through painting your pet step-by-step.  No experience necessary.  Suggested ages:  12 and up.  We ask that guests under 18 be accompanied by an adult.

IMPORTANT:  Email a photo of your pet (upclose, head shot works the best) to thesippingmuse@gmail.com.  Please register and pay fee first, then send photo as soon as possible, but no later than THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6.  We will sketch your pet on a 12×16 canvas before the class.   Please note we prefer to include only one pet in your painting.  If you include 2 pets, we cannot guarantee you will finish the portrait within the 3 1/2 hour class.

Please bring photo of your pet (or have available on smart phone) to the painting session on February 9th.

LOCATION:   The Fundraiser will be held at One Lake Brewing, 1 Lake Street in Oak Park at Austin Boulevard.  You can purchase food and beverages at your own cost before and during the paint session.

Doors Open/Check in begins at 1:45pm, Paint Session starts promptly at 2:15pm, Event Concludes by 5:30pm

Prize Drawings:   Each ticket purchase includes 1 free ticket for prize drawings, including a gift bag donated by The Sipping Muse with a bottle of wine, 2 hand-painted logo Symphony wine glasses and a free paint session for 2 people at our studio located in Wheaton, IL (value up to $140).

Clothing: We use non-toxic acrylic, water soluble paint and do provide aprons, but suggest guests wear casual and comfortable clothes, as well as a short sleeve or 3/4 length sleeve top.  While the paint will wash off of your hands, it is not always easy to get out of clothing.  Sometimes clear-colored hand sanitizer works, or rubbing alcohol.  We do keep these items on hand.  The Sipping Muse is not responsible for any paint spills on guests personal belongings while in the studio.

Cancellations: For paint your pet, once you send us the photo of your pet, there will not be any refund or credit issued.   NOTE:  for Fundraiser Events, we will still donate a portion of the ticket sale to the Charity.
