We’re now painting our first CATA mural! Artist Dodge Williams is working at 3025 Jefferson Ave to paint a mural that raises awareness of the need for the community to come together to support individual healing in areas such as mental health and homelessness. Our partner non-profit for this mural is the Mental Health Association of San Mateo County, which provides housing and mental health services to the homeless throughout the mid-Peninsula.
Stop by and check out the work in progress!
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our old Open Paint location, Pizza and Pints, is now closed. We’ve relocated to the nearby Cyclismo Cafe at 871 Middlefield Road. It’s a few shops down from Cinemark, right next to the Redwood City Caltrain and across the street from the 900 Middlefield Road Parking garage.
Due to popular demand, we’re extending our Open Paint series until the end of March! You can find photos from our first three months here. We’ll continue to promote Open Paint as the best, most accessible painting event in the San Francisco Bay Area. Open Paint serves as a space for community members from all walks of life to gather, paint, support local artists, and learn about great non-profits.
We are looking for additional artists and non-profits to feature throughout the next three months. If you have ideas, please email Cary Kelly at email@example.com.
Come out to Open Paint by CATA, an admission-free, all-ages social event at Pizza and Pints.
Open Paint takes place every Thursday 5-8 PM, starting October 13. Located next to Caltrain in downtown Redwood City at 821 Winslow Street. No admission cost. We provide paint, brushes, blank canvases, and “paint-by-number” designs by local artists. Pizza, beer, and wine available for purchase.
Donations and a percentage of all food/beverages sales support Community Advocacy Through Art (CATA), a street art and community advocacy project of the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation.
RSVP on Eventbrite at openpaintbycata.eventbrite.com so we know how many canvases to hang.

We’re in the process of organizing a weekly paint night at Redwood City’s famous Pizza & Pints. This admission-free event will consist of blank and paint-by-numbers canvases, along with cheap (but tasty!) pizza and beer, for three hours of art, fun and fundraising. Stay tuned for official details and our first event date.
