Things get dramatic this week with Shakespeare alfresco, but take a break from the drama with a bar crawl, and top it off with ice cream on Sunday.

7/14 Bring your inner Picasso to life at an art workshop hosted by the Avianne Academy of Arts in Livermore. During the five-hour session, attendees can work on an existing project or take on a new one from the instructor based on their skill level. takeartclasses.com.
A Midsummer Melodrama
