Community Paint Days for the Cañada College Mural

The time has arrived! Cañada College’s historic first mural is ready to be painted by YOU. Come be a part of this milestone and join in on community paint days. Everyone is welcome!

You can learn more about our mural’s history and sign up for community paint days here. We also acknowledge that weather is always changing, so to consider everyone's safety, health, time and commute, our Mural Committee will announce at 4 p.m. the night before a Community Paint Day if a paint session is canceled due to inclement weather conditions.

The Cañada College shuttle will run direct service Monday-Friday to/from Cañada and East Palo Alto through May 26, 2023. Visit canadacollege.edu/shuttle for the latest schedule updates.


Masking Requirement

San Mateo County’s current Community Level is LOW, and face masks are strongly recommended, but not required indoors at any SMCCCD facility except for those designated as a healthcare facility. Masks are located at various locations throughout all buildings. As the San Mateo County Community Level changes, updated information will be provided to students, employees, and visitors.
