    Celebrate fall with the fun of going out while staying in! RPAC will deliver all the materials for one finished canvas painting project to your doorstep. You provide the pumpkin spice cookies, candy, or beverages of choice and the painters, and we will provide the step-by-step paint along via a private Zoom event. This is a great chance to get out without going out!

    (The design shown in the photograph will be what we are painting!)

    $20 covers the cost of canvas, paint, and serves as admission to the event. If you would like to keep your easel and paintbrushes you may do so for an extra $5. (Our easles make a great display stand in a pinch!)

    Materials for this event will be delivered September 10th to your patio via contactless delivery.

    Un-purchased easels and brushes will be picked up via our state-of-the-art patio delivery system after the event.

    Save $10 by subscribing to our paint-at-home series! Visit https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?subscription=rpart to get all 3 events for $50!
