We will meet at his studio starting at 9 a.m., located in "The Schoolhouse at Mainstreet" at 19650 Main Street, Parker, before heading out at 10 a.m. to paint at 17 Mile House Farm Park, 8181 S. Parker Rd., Centennial, CO 80016 ***There is free parking in the lot located behind The Schoolhouse.

Please remember the The Schoolhouse annex building which had the restrooms is currently under construction, so there are no restrooms or water available in the building at all. One can go to a local coffee shop or use the port a potty in the back that is for the construction workers. 

As we did last year before heading out to paint, we will be sharing a bit of refreshment with each other in Lorenzo's studio at "The Schoolhouse at Mainstreet". Enter through the front entrance on Main Street , then head downstairs, the studio is on the left.

There will be several boxes of coffee from Starbucks type places, a donation jar set out to help defray the cost of coffee. There will be urn an of hot water as well as a variety teas.

We are asking members to bring a few breakfast pastries to share (this doesn't mean everyone must bring a goodie, if you have a favorite, bring it). PAAC artists are invited too again this year so we are expecting to have a good crowd!
