Paint Outs

Being enthusiastic we try to paint out doors as often as we can as individuals, but we also paint as a group at least once a month. Check here, on our calendar page, or our Facebook page to find out where we will be next… it’s not as hard as “finding Waldo”. We will also inform you of other local non-FCPAP Paint Outs coming up.

 Upcoming Paint Outs:

FCPAP Paints at the Arboretum, Friday and Saturday, December 8 and 9.
Let’s grab our gear and head for one of our favorite places, the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens. We will meet on Friday and Saturday beginning at 8:00 am. The Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens is located just East of I-295 off of Monument Road at 1445 Millcoe Road, in Jacksonville 32225.

This one of our artist’s and many other artists favorite places to paint. There are so many different environments and vistas to choose from some times it’s hard to do that. Artists can paint structures, or water, or alien like landscapes. You can narrow your focus to a single vignette or paint a beautiful panoramic landscape. This will be a great warm up to our Brush with Nature in March and whatever you create these days can be sold at that event.
