We are promising and quickly growing plein air painting organization. Always welcoming new members. We are known throughout the Jacksonville community for our support of the visual arts, attending and painting out during events, embrassing workshops, organizations, and participating in juried shows and Events.  The members share and support a special comroditory for the visual arts. 

We are on the move discovering unknown paths, along coastal lines, painting under palm trees, creating with oil paints our vision of the barges, discovering historically locations and documenting them with a box of pastels.  We observe wildlife up close along the marshes or at the Jacksonville Zoo. Because we are located in N.E Florida, Jacksonville, we have easy access to historical St Augustine, Palm Coast and the Georgia shorelines.  Our members are enthusiastic painters who recently coordinated with Jacksonville Urban Sketchers.

Plenty of oppurtunity to sell your artwork, or participate in juried Exhibitions. We are friendly and welcoming group who will offer comroditity to anyone in the visual arts field. Many of our members can join in on workshops or will always find someone to offer a helping hand. You will find support group and chance to grow in and develope your artwork. 

The group maintains a strong and active membership and build mutually beneficial relationships with other artist and plein air groups.

Election for 2021

With an all volunteer organization such as ours,  we  look forward to continue growth and development.  One of the most important duties of any organization is to have a board of directors and officers capable of the responsibilities that ensure the group’s continued success.

We have established an election committee to begin the process of soliciting and vetting nominees to be elected as replacements for the current officers and board.

Beginning September 1, 2020 we are opening the nomination process. Members are encouraged to nominate other members, or themselves to serve on the board, or as officers. Any nomination recommendations may be made by email to the election committee. Please email your nomination to firstcoastpleinairpainters@gmail.com
