  • June 25: Layered landscapes with birch trees
  • July 2: Sweet summer sunset
  • July 9: Lower Niagara River

How it works: You bring your own refreshments, the Lewiston Council on the Arts will supply canvases, easels, paints, brushes, recyclable cups, napkins, plates and plastic ware.

What makes this painting party so special? Location! Location! Location! Enjoy a few relaxing hours with one of Western New York's most well-known artists helping you to create your very own masterpiece.

Each event begins at 6 p.m. and costs $45. The Lewiston Peace Garden is located at 476 Center St.
