Share Your Creativity on the Concrete
Stop by Chandler Center for the Arts Jan. 23 for some community chalk-coloring on the terrace. Artist Edith Castro – whose cubist-inspired compositions are featured in The Gallery at the CCA through Feb. 26 – has created a 10-by-20-foot chalk outline in her geometric style, and the gallery invites guests of all ages to help color in the lines. Bring a friend, bring a mask; the gallery provides the chalk. While there, be sure to explore Castro’s work in the exhibit Sin Amor, No Somos Nada. 10 a.m.-noon; stay for 15 minutes or the whole two hours to make your mark. Free. Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Ave., Chandler, 480-782-2695, visiongallery.org/event/community-chalk-mural.

Get Your Groove on at the Garden
Tables are socially distanced and capacity is limited as Music in the Garden returns to Desert Botanical Garden for intimate weekly performances. Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns will keep your toes tapping Jan. 22, with its old-school rhythm and blues, modern pop, classic rock and today’s hottest dance tunes. The spring concert series continues through March 26. F, 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., with doors open 30 minutes prior to showtime. Tickets start at $50. Desert Botanical Garden, 1201 N. Galvin Pkwy., Phoenix, 480-941-1225, dbg.org.

Hit the Links For a Good Cause
Tee off to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation as Kimmyz on Greenway hosts a fundraising golf tournament Jan. 23. The event includes 18 holes of golf, four mulligans per team, lunch and prizes for closest to the pin, longest putt and longest drive. 8 a.m. $99 per person; teams of four. The Legend at Arrowhead, 21027 N. 67th Ave., Glendale, 602-938-9330.

Enjoy a Romantic Comedy Under the Stars
Arrive early to snag a comfy couch, lounge chair or pouf – all arranged in socially distant seating pods – before the curtain opens on Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Based on Truman Capote’s novel about a naïve, eccentric society girl who falls in love with a struggling New York writer, the iconic classic turned eating a pastry while window-shopping into a whimsical rite of passage. Savory and sweet gourmet snack boxes, wine and cocktails are available for purchase. Admission is free, first come, first served. 6 p.m. Vernadero Lawn at Royal Palms Resort and Spa, 5200 E. Camelback Rd., Phoenix, royalpalmshotel.com.

Watch Artists Demonstrate Their Techniques
Discover 44,000 square feet of creativity as you meet the artists and shop for your next piece of fine art at Arizona Fine Art Expo. The art adventure features dozens of nationally acclaimed and award-winning artists in all media, from paintings, pottery and jewelry to life-sized and monumental sculptures in bronze, stone, clay, metal, copper and mixed media. The tented event allows ample space for social distancing with paths that flow in and about a 2-acre sculpture garden. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily through March 28. $10, season pass; $8, seniors and military. 26540 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, 480-837-7163, arizonafineartexpo.com.
