March 16, 5-8pm: Paint a Pup and Support Cherryland Humane Society

Join us on March 16 anytime between 5-8pm at Blackbird Arts to paint Cherryland Humane Society’s new ceramic Donor Dogs donation collection banks.

Donor Dogs play an important role in the community by raising funds and awareness. These two hundred soon-to-be painted dogs will be located at businesses throughout the area!

Artists with intermediate to advanced painting skills are needed to give the ceramic dogs a facelift and new look. They are an open canvas and can be painted to resemble a dog that has been a special part of your life!

Registration is free. Onsite donations of $5 to $10 per person are greatly appreciated to cover the materials cost. 

Children are welcome to attend and learn about a live dog or cat and play at the art table. 

Blackbird Arts is located at 1485 Barlow Street in Traverse City.
