Open Paint 2.0


Open Paint 2.0 by CATA is an admission-free, all-ages outdoor painting experience, following on the success of the longstanding Open Paint monthly community events.

For an entire afternoon, we will fill the Redwood City Courthouse Square with long tables where participants can sit to paint with friends, family, and strangers alike. Acrylic paint, brushes, and vinyl sheets are provided to participants at no cost. Canvases are available at the event for a suggested donation.

Participants of all ages, experience, and background are welcome. Come alone or with a group! The event is admission-free and first-come-first-served unless you pay to reserve a seat. Those who provide a courtesy RSVP via Eventbrite will be granted access to the priority check-in line on the day of the event.

During the two scheduled seatings, professional artists will be live painting to inspire the attending participants. Note: the event is a free-form painting experience, and no formal art instruction is provided. This event will also feature the programs of local non-profits and the artwork of exemplary high school artists.

Community Advocacy Through Art (CATA) is a volunteer-run project of the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation. All donations to this event are used to cover event expenses and fund CATA's street art mural program.
