Paint Days – Saturdays, March-May, 10-3
Each Saturday during the months of March, April, and May, they will have a “Paint Day”. They invite you to come to Garfield Park on these days and dedicate time to paint out in the open air. Bring your painting supplies and join the fun!
Small portable easels will be available to loan out from 10am-3pm. You must have a valid I.D. in order to borrow an easel. The arts center will also provide practical items such as water, paper towels, and access to restrooms; however, you are responsible for providing your own canvas, paints, brushes, etc. Paint Days are completely optional, and will not impact your stake in the competition.
Feel free to bring your little ones, as they will have mini paint kits available for them to create their own works of art outside on the patio!
