Is a group of enthusiastic and dedicated plein air painters based on the First Coast (Northeast Florida/Southeast Georgia). “Plein air is defined as a style of painting produced out of doors in natural light.”
The purpose of this group is to foster plein air painting on the First Coast. We also maintain a strong membership, gain sponsorship and provide exhibition opportunities. FCPAP builds mutually beneficial relationships with other art and plein air groups.
We are a promising and quickly growing plein air painting organization that enjoy creating out of doors. Known throughout northeast Florida for paint outs and our juried exhibits, we support community organizations with demonstrations and fundraising. Our members share a special camaraderie for the visual arts.
