Answer the following questions?

Do you currently have any pets? Did you have any during your childhood? Do you have any memories that stick out about these pets? What does your pet mean to you?

Think about how would you like to capture a pet in a pet portrait.

FYI: Next week you will make three pet portraits in your sketchbook. For now, I want you to find a pet or make plans for what pet you will draw. Is it your pet, a neighbor’s pet, a friend, or a family pet? Perhaps, you can draw someone’s pet is the class. If you can’t get a pet to draw talk to me. You can also draw pets at the park dog run, any pets outside at the park, go to an animal shelter, etc.
