Open Paint

Do you like to paint, eat good food, and meet new people? Come out to Open Paint by CATA, a donation-based, all-ages social event. Hosted at Cyclismo Cafe in downtown Redwood City, right next to Caltrain (871 Middlefield Rd, Redwood City, CA 94063). Please RSVP on Eventbrite so we can prepare enough materials!

Donation-based. All ages welcome. For no cost, we provide paint, brushes, vinyl sheets for painting, and a few large “fill-in-the-blank” collaborative canvases designed by local artists. Small and large canvases available by donation. Beverages and food, including vegetarian and gluten-free options, available for purchase from Cyclismo Cafe.

Your donations and a percentage of all food/beverage purchases sustain Open Paint and keep it accessible for all community members. Donations also support Community Advocacy Through Art (CATA) murals and advocacy efforts in Redwood City and the mid-Peninsula.

Each event features a local non-profit and a local artist. While the event is free-form (meaning no guided instruction), our featured artist can provide painting tips upon request. Open Paint takes place the first Thursday of every month, from 5-8 PM. 

Open Paint events are supported by our amazing team of volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering at a future event, please email
