Fridays at the MAH: Paint Launch!





Save to:

Ever painted with a catapult before? Throw brilliant colors onto a canvas at this epic event where engineering and the arts are thrown together.

Paint by catapult

Create your very own paint-launching tool with the Watsonville Environmental Science Workshop and Laurel Bushman to spread color onto blank canvas. Work with experienced builders to piece together a paint marker.

Enjoy live painting experiences

Delight in live painting by local muralist Elijah Pfotenhauer of Painted Ladder. Learn about public art and how it can engage and uplift a community.

Share your story in colors in a paint by numbers community mural created by Laurel Bushman.
