31st NBPA Paintout - RING MOUNTAIN, Corte Madera, Sunday, October 23rd, 12:30pm-3:30pm

Ring Mountain Open Space Preserve

5300 Paradise Drive
Corte Madera, CA 94976

This location was recommended by one of our painters, Renny. There's parking along the sidewalks. But if that fills up, there's a dirt shoulders at the bottom of the hill (off main road of Paradise Drive - but you'll have to walk a little bit to get to the entrance of trail)
So walk up this hill towards the Blue trash can under the trees.

I only found 2 entrances. This one takes you closer to the top of the hill. The other entrance is around the corner of Paradise drive.... very flat entrance, I'm assuming is a much longer hike to get up on the hill.
Here's the entrance along Paradise Drive.

There's quite a few mountain bikers zipping down the trails. So make sure to set up off to the side.

12:00pm - 12:30pm - We'll meet briefly at entrance to trail or feel free to start painting! Feel free to drive off and paint as well. Lot's of areas to explore!!!
12:30pm - 3:30pm - Let's Paint!
3:30 - 4:00pm - Meet back at entrance of trail. We will share our findings, techniques or just to chat (not a critique).

Artists will gather at the Art Center on Day 1 to have their canvases stamped, and then head out into town and the surrounding area with packed easels, paints and brushes, looking for inspiration. The paintings will be turned in at the end of Day 2, and on Day 3, the Art Center will hold a gala to show the finished art.
