it's Second Saturday weekend!

March 14 is Second Saturday.   Many art galleries in Sacramento, Roseville and Fair Oaks stay open late on the second Saturday of each month and host "open houses".

In addition, there are family-friendly activities here in Roseville!   Check out this link http://www.roseville.ca.us/parks/parks_n_facilities/facilities/maidu_indian_museum_special_events.asp

You can spend an entire Saturday at Maidu Center for only $14/family.   Make it a special Second Saturday!

A "p.s." for the kids:   be sure to take a sketchbook with you on your Second Saturday adventure!  All you need is a sketchbook and a good quality pencil.  Sketch your favorite parts of your day and when you return home, you can add color with crayons, markers, colored pencils or watercolors... or not!  It's up to YOU because it's your art!

Your sketches will bring back these fun memories more than a photograph - because you will be sketching what YOU see and what was most important to YOU.   Have fun. . .  and I'd love to see them so post a link in a reply to me, ok?

Darlene - thanks for stopping by The PopArtDiva Retro Boomer Blog and listening to my child star/singer post!

I used to live in the Bay Area and I did art shows in Sacramento - I've been thinking of moving back to Northern California. As an artist, it's good to know your area supports the arts in this way!

If you get a chance you might enjoy my two art blogs - Life Is Like Art and The NORMAL CHALLENGED Artist™ too.
