Cat Portrait Demonstration with ShawnaLee

You’re invited!

Cat Portrait Demonstration with ShawnaLee
Monday May 23rd from 7-8:30pm

Pet Portrait Artist, ShawnaLee Kwashnak, will share her love of cats with you as she demonstrates traditional drawing skills to create a stunning Pet Portrait Drawing right from the comfort of your home!  (you’ll save on gas too!)

This Cat Portrait Demonstration coincides with her one person art show of our feline companions physically held at Whisker’s Pet Rescue in Southbury CT. The art show is in person (during select hours).

Would you love to have your kitty considered for the demonstration?  The artist loves photos that are in focus, taken at eye level, and without a flash. The best references come from setting up a stool next to a window on a cloudy day and kneel down to get eye level. Send what you’ve got to the artist: [email protected]  subject: “cat demo” and be sure to sign up for the demonstration!

The finished demonstration portrait will be offered for sale at 50% off the regular fee of $325 + tax —- so, the demonstration will be $162.50 + tax = $172.82. The artist will then donate 20% to Whiskers to help kitties in celebration of their 20th anniversary!!! Win-Win!

Sign up today and Go gather those kitty pictures! Then send them to: [email protected]

“Moments Unlost” Art Show by ShawnaLee at the Terryville Public Library

“Moments Unlost”

Art Show featuring works of art by ShawnaLee W. Kwashnak

February 2022

Terryville Public Library,  238 Main Street Terryville, CT 06786

“Moments Unlost” art show represents a collection of works of art by award winning portraitist, ShawnaLee W. Kwashnak, that capture moments in time that are now “unlost”.  Children grow, pets we love weave in and out or our lives, and moments we experience and share come and go fluidly throughout our lives.  Did we really notice? Are these moments lost, or unlost?  What happens when an artist takes notice?

Each work of art will have information to engage the viewer that also promotes thoughtful reflection.

ShawnaLee W. Kwashnak offers portraits of children, pets, horses, homes and moments in charcoals or oils.  She is the recipient of a grant from the FY20 CT Artist Respond awarded by DECD/CT Office of the Arts for teaching pandemic portraiture to youth.  See their art show here.

ShawnaLee also offers art classes year round via zoom.  Classes include sketching, drawing and painting.  Click here for the current list of classes offered.
