Pick Up a Paintbrush and Join “Painting with Parks” Virtual Class

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on September 27, 2020

Citrus County Parks and Recreation has been getting creative since COVID-19 temporarily modified our programming. That creativity has spurred the growth of virtual evening programs.

Pick Up a Paintbrush and Join “Painting with Parks” Virtual Class

Parks already offers a Free Virtual Trivia Night for adults on the first and third Mondays of the month, as well as a Virtual Open Mic Night to showcase local Citrus County talent on the final Wednesday of each month.

Now, we’re offering a virtual adult painting class called “Painting With Parks”. For a $15 registration fee per class, citizens can receive access to the session which includes an art kit complete with 6 paintbrushes, three canvases, and paint. The 2-hour class features an instructor and an art camera which points at her table so students can follow along step-by-step and stroke by stroke to create their own work of art.

“Painting with Parks” happens at 6:30 pm on each second Wednesday of the month from now until the end of the year. Jump in for one class or sign for them all! Upcoming dates:

October 14

November 11

December 9

“After hosting a virtual art camp this summer for preteens, we knew we could offer an art class for adults who would enjoy relaxing while creating a masterpiece with a little online assistance,” said Recreation Program Specialist Andrea Cuccaro. “So far, everyone is having a good time participating in this new program,” she added.

To register for upcoming classes, go to you’ll also need to stop by the Citrus County Parks and Recreation sometime before the class to pick up your art supplies. Social distancing will be followed.

Citrus County Parks and Recreation offers many more fun programs on top of virtual evenings, such as Drive-in Movies, arts and crafts camps for kids during holiday breaks, and more. To see upcoming program information, follow Parks on Facebook: For more information, phone (352) 527-7540.
