My Pet Painting
Here at Autism Pittsburgh, we love our furry family members! There's no better way to honor our pets than having a piece of artwork created to last forever. My Pet Painting is a new program created by Autism Pittsburgh, Rich, Lisa, and their daughter, Tori.
Tori was the artist that started it all. Painting was a way for her to do something she enjoyed, and connected her to herself in profound and creative ways. Art connects us and connects to us in unique ways, and Tori found joy in creating works of art that honored her pets, as well as others with pets who have reached out to share in the joy.
We wanted to help create this program for artists just like Tori, who enjoy taking a calming and connecting moment to create a piece of true magic that will be cherished forever.
Our goal is to connect artists with people who would like to have a piece created to honor their pets. We will work with each artist to make sure that they are not overwhelmed with their workload, and are just enjoying the process of creating. The funds that go toward the painting is connected directly to the artist, and we can help facilitate shipping and communication every step of the way. We are currently looking for artists to get our program up and running, and we would love for you to become a part of it!
