I've always enjoyed how playful dogs can be. Their playful attitude is what inspired this project. I like how much you can build a relationship with a dog or any pet.
The project I had in mind was a finger painting stand that I will set up in the park and as dogs and their owners come by they can come by and join in a fun little activity for the both them. I wanted to do some fun and enjoyable for others to join in to. This project will be a collaborative project with the pets AND will get the owners to get involved with the collaboration; I thought it would be nice to do something that gets more subjects involved. I will have the owners and the dogs painting pictures that they will be able to keep as a memorabilia. I will be documenting the event for my project. So come out this saturday to the park and bring your furry little friend for some paw painting! free shirt available. [Write Comment]
That sounds great. I like the idea of getting a lot of people involved and making the piece a public event, I've just been thinking along those lines, too. Do you think the dogs will just do it, or you will have to think of tactics to interest them in painting with their paws? Also how were you thinking to document -- photo, video, the images themselves? And lastly make extra sure you are using natural/non-toxic pigments for the doggies.

Thank you....I will either use face paint or mud for the shirts. About the documentation I will be taking pictures. Also I think that I will have to use tactics to get the dog to paint ; I might have the owner assist the dog in painting.
here is the facebook event...invite your friends:
i saw your project today when I was setting up mine. I think you have a great idea and it seemed like it turned out to be successful. How are you planning on presenting your piece during the show? Any special way?
