Watercolor Artists Come to Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum

On January 11, the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum was proud to host a group of watercolor artists who spent the afternoon depicting scenes of the Rancho San Pedro and in watercolor.  The results were wonderful.  The Rancho never looks so vibrant in watercolor.  The artists come back to the Rancho every so often to paint and we hope to host another one of their watercolor days.

Volunteer Open House
January 10, 2009 at 10am

Make a 2009 New Year’s resolution to volunteer and support the Museum by joining our volunteer family. Join us at the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum on January 10th for a fun and interactive volunteer open house. Check out some of the great reasons to volunteer:

  1. Need a break from the hectic pace of everyday life? The Adobe is a peaceful and beautiful place to spend time.
  2. Need exercise? Giving tours one morning or afternoon a month will burn hundreds of calories.
  3. Stuck at home with just the television? Get off the couch and help with special events.
  4. Like to meet new people, but don’t want to go to nightclubs? Join an elite group of friendly volunteers.

Our volunteer open house will offer you a chance to learn about the Adobe, our volunteer opportunities, and meet some of our wonderful volunteers. You and your family will be able to choose from 3 activities.

Pick one and find out how fun history can be.

  1. Paper airplane activity in the Air Meet room
  2. Mosaic activity on the Spanish veranda
  3. Kitchen chat in the kitchen

Reservations are requested by calling Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum at (310) 603-0088 or by contacting us.

We hope to see you on the 10th!
