Life may be a blank canvas, but we say you haven't lived until you've splattered yours with paint. Starting today, you can channel your inner Picasso, set to the soundtrack of free live music in Farragut Square as ArtJamz teams up with the Golden Triangle Summer Concert Series. The $30 ticket gets you a canvas you can take home, plus an easel, brushes, and unlimited paints and art supplies to use at the event. ArtJamz will host the open-air painting sessions weekly through the end of the month, so don't miss out on the chance to create a masterpiece in the great outdoors (well, as close as you can get, downtown). When: Thursdays, June 7 through June 21, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Where: Farragut Square Park, K Street and 17th Street NW; no phone.
