Fundraiser – West Suburban Humane Society

08/11/2019 at at 3:00 pm - 6:15 pm CDT


The Sipping Muse is partnering with West Suburban Humane Society for a Paint Your Pet fundraising event.  The West Suburban Humane Society, located in Downer’s Grove, is dedicated to operating a premier animal shelter for the purpose of finding safe, permanent and compatible homes to adopt domestic dogs and cats.  They are committed to educating and encouraging the public to humanely care for dogs and cats,  For more information on this organization, visit website at https://wshs-dg.org,

Paint Fee is $70 per person, with $30 of this fee donated to the charity.  If 33 or more people register for the event, The Sipping Muse will donate $38 of each ticket sold to the charity.

Fee includes all paint supplies, a pre-sketched drawing of your pet on a 12×16 canvas, wine/beverages and light snacks.  Multiple Paint Your Pet expert art instructors will guide guests through painting your pet step-by-step.  No experience necessary.  No coupons or discounts accepted for fundraisers.  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 Monday, August 5th.  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.

Please bring photo of your pet (or have available on smart phone) to the painting session on August 11th.

Raffle tickets will be sold the day of the event for some great prizes!

Doors Open at 3:00pm, Paint Session begins promptly at 3:15pm, Event Concludes by 6:15pm

Location:  Creative arts and BYOB studio located at 122 N. Hale in Historic downtown Wheaton.

Beverages & Snacks:   Wine/beverages and light snacks will be provided.  We card all guests, please have ID available.

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 and we sketch it out, there will not be any refund issued.  However, if you cancel before 24 hours of the event, you will receive a credit for a future paint your pet event.  “No-Shows” and cancellations within 24 hours of the event will not receive any credit/refund.  NOTE:  for Fundraiser Events, we will still donate a portion of the ticket to the Charity.
