Calling all dog-lovers: this is your time, it’s finally happening. An entire museum has been created in honor of your very best — and furriest — friends, and is ready to invite you to express your creative drawing skills to paint one very photogenic dog model, or a picture of your best bud.

Join New York Adventure Club ( for an exclusive after-hours pastel painting workshop at the American Kennel Club (AKC) Museum of the Dog ( — now back in NYC after residing in St. Louis for the past 30 years, this one-of-a-kind museum showcases one of the largest repositories of canine-related art in the world.

Led by award-winning artist Karen Miura and her dog, Lucy, our artistic experience will include:

• Private access to the AKC Museum after the doors close to the public
• A chance to browse the museum’s collection that commemorates, signifies, and celebrates the human-canine relationship through fine art and artifacts, and dynamic exhibits and activities
• A step-by-step demonstration with Karen on pastel painting dogs — bring a photo of your pet, or use Lucy as your muse!
• Opportunities afterward to play with Lucy and socialize with other canine-loving adventurers

All painting supplies will be provided, and all art can be taken home!

As a special bonus, doggy goodie bags will be handed out afterward, courtesy of pet food company I and love and you! (
