Cotati, CA. ~ Ever wonder how barns became famous for their beautiful red color? In years past, farmers used rust to seal the wood on their barns. The color was so pop- ular that when paint became more available, many people chose red paint for their barns in honor of the tradition. With the Holidays fast ap- proaching, nothing says holi- day spirit more than a little red barn. Artxcursion and Grav South

Brewing Co. bring

you a festive barn-tastic paint night!

Gather for a quick painting

tutorial and then create your very own masterpiece. Artist and guide Alana Tillman will encourage and lead you on your creative way! Cost $45. Time is 6:00 pm.
