If you love to paint, you've probably thought about painting your pets. Creating a beautiful painting allows you to show and memorialize your love in a real way, that will last forever and leave a legacy for you — and for your beloved pet.
But you might have hesitated because you don’t know exactly which colors to mix or which brush strokes to use to create fur that looks soft and natural. You might have tried your hand at painting pets, only to find that the eyes don’t look quite right, or that you haven’t been able to capture your pet’s unique personality.
If you love animals but have struggled to paint them, you're not alone and it's not your fault.
The reason you're struggling is really quite simple and even easier to fix. There are tips and techniques that experienced pet painters know that turn frustration into fun.
You can learn how to confidently paint pets with personality for yourself, your family and friends, and even for paid commissions.
I’ll show you easy tips and tricks for everything you need to know about painting cats and dogs even if you've never picked up a paintbrush.
If you've been intimidated and don’t know where to start, I'll hold your hand through my step-by-step videos and written instructions.
Everything you need to know about painting your furry friends from A-to-Z will be lovingly broken down for you and made simple.

Hi there! In case we haven't met, I'm Miriam Schulman, founder of The Inspiration Place. I've been a professional painter for nearly 20 years and completed dozens of commissioned portraits of families and their pets. But what I'm most proud of is how I'm able to pass on my knowledge to people like you.
As a teacher, I excel at taking the complex and making it simple in step-by-step demonstrations that balance the practical side of learning the skills with building your confidence to make you feel that you can do it too.
Over the years, I’ve found that the most rewarding part of teaching has been building an artist community. My art students feel motivated and inspired while gaining the direction and structure they need to practice their skills and become a better artist.
Want to be one of them?
I would love to help you reconnect with your creativity so that you can make paintings of your fur babies that you're proud of.
You’re smart. You looked around and you know that to sign up for a watercolor workshop normally costs hundreds of dollars.
And I truly believe that by now you can see it would be worth that much to learn my watercolor secrets so you can relax and paint the way you always imagined you would now that you have the time.
In fact, I believe it’s worth a lot more than taking a group watercolor class since you can study the art in the privacy of your own home, replay the lessons as many times as you want and watch me demonstrate entire paintings from start to finish.

Registration for programs at the Inspiration Place only stay open for a week. I like to keep my promotion periods brief and have classes running on a semester style basis.
This helps the community form strong bonds with one another as they go through the same material at the same time sharing their journey.
In fairness to the rest of my students and customers, I do not accept late registrations.
Q: Does your class teaching go slowly thru the whole painting? Is your class completely step by step?
A: This is literally a step-by-step, mix this color with that one and put it here holding your hand type of training. Nothing is left out. Yet, you'll learn how to apply what you've learned to your own pet portraits.
Q: I've never taken a watercolor class, do I need to take Watercolor Secrets first?
A: Although all skill levels are welcome, if you have never taken a watercolor class before, it is a really good idea to master the skills taught in Watercolor Secrets, which provides the best foundation in the watercolor skills you need to move on to painting cats and dogs.
