November 5 -- Dagger DogVinci
Have you ever seen a dog paint? Dagger was voted best Long Island Painter of 2018! Please join us for an incredibly fun, hands on learning experience, that you will never forget! Dagger was born to do amazing things, but how amazing, nobody could have ever imagined! As a puppy, Dagger was learning to be a Highly Trained Assistance dog for Canine Companions for Independence until his release from their program. After his service career Yvonne jumped at the chance to adopt Dagger. As an artist herself, Yvonne would paint in her studio as Dagger sat faithfully watching her paint. Then one day, as Yvonne was painting at her easel, Dagger approached her nudging her with his snout. Jokingly, Yvonne asked Dagger, "Do You want to paint?" His tail began to wag and Dog Vinci was born! Now he helps 100's of fellow canineís raising over $150,000 for shelters selling his artwork! All participants will paint along with Dog Vinci!
This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Please sign up at the front desk.
