To allow Christmas shopping and travels, the paintout date has been bumped up to Sunday December 12th.

Sounds like a great place to paint especially with it's recent renovation! And it's location is wedged between the "Academy of Science" and the "de Young Museum".

So much choices to paint: Lots of tall trees, huge fountain in the middle, Academy of Science building, de Young building, statues, etc.

Feel free to paint all day.... or paint, then visit a museum and get inspired.... or visit the musuem, get inspired then paint? Just remember that additional fees may apply for Special Exhibitions. Scroll to the very bottom for times & prices to each museum.
