We meet at the Mulholland Dam entrance and learn a bit about the history of the reservoir and iconic Hollywood sign. We will then set up our easels at a beautiful location on the bridge. With instruction from a professional artist, she will guide you in creating your landscape composition on canvas and then paint it in steps. You can receive as little or as much help that you’d like depending on your skill level. After about an hour and a half, we will pack up and walk back to our meeting point with our beautiful paintings! The painting will dry fast outside so you can take it home to enjoy and remember your creative experience. People generally find painting outside to be very relaxing and rejuvenating!

We will meet at the Hollywood Lake Reservoir entrance by the bridge. Then, we will set up our painting easels on the bridge overlooking the scenic Hollywood Lake and sign.
Hat for sun
We will be standing at an easel painting so wear comfortable shoes and casual clothes you wouldn't mind getting paint on potentially. It may be sunny and warm so a hat and sunscreen are recommended.
