Painting with Paws

2023 Event – Held Saturday, September 23, 10 am – 2 pm

Held as part of Northville’s Victorian Festival, Painting with Paws is an exciting creative experience where pet owners bring their dog to the Art House to have an artist transform a print of their dog’s paw into a completed work of art. 

We had over 60 dogs including 8 puppies participate in this year’s event held on a beautiful Saturday morning in September.

Proceeds from Painting with Paws benefit public art education programs at the Northville Art House, a 501 (c)3 organization. Tax ID: 84-3464876

Special thanks to our partners Dogtopia, Celebrity Pets Co, The Northville Gallery, Northville Chamber of Commerce/Victorian Festival and Firefly Pet Photography. As well as our volunteers from Northville High School’s Rotary Interact and the Northville Art House.
