Friday, April 6, 2018 - Nocturne, Downtown Fort Collins Plaza

6:30pm - 9:30pm

We will meet near Coopersmith's Pub and Brewery and paint in the plaza or elsewhere near there. Parking is cheap and easy at the Old Town Garage on Remmington St. You can also paint outside at the very top of the garage. Sunset is at 7:30 so you'll have time to set up before it gets dark. Bring a headlamp or something similar to light both your painting and palette, and remember to dress warmly because the evenings get cold! I'll gladly get a beer afterwards if anyone wants to join me!
