FREE FRIDAY PAINT-OUTS
Every Friday of the year (weather permitting)
FREE FRIDAYS are held along the American River in Sacramento, California. This is a free opportunity to paint, draw, see a demonstration, learn about watercolor painting, ask questions, or just observe… Show up any Friday throughout the year at the Watt Avenue La Riviera entrance to the American River Parkway. We assemble in the West parking area at 9AM. You are welcome to stay or leave at your convenience.
Free Fridays are rarely cancelled, but if you plan to attend on any given Friday, it is advisable to double-check with me prior to 6 PM, Thursday. Contact me by way of my Contact Form.
