Due to Covid19 our organization has temporarily suspended activities. Hope fully we will all be able to come together again and start painting.

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, embracing workshops, organizations, and participating in juried shows and Events.  The members share and support a special camaraderie 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 opportunity to sell your artwork, or participate in juried Exhibitions. We are friendly and welcoming group who will offer camaraderie 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 develop your artwork. 

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