You will have a wonderful opportunity to take in some fresh air while painting and selling @ Jacksonville Arboretum. The members only have the chance to paint the live oak trees, paint down by the ravine, or possibly spot an alligator swimming in the pond.

FCPAP will offer the opportunity to members only to jury artwork, have multiple tents set up to sell wet paintings, and offer demonstrations. Music will be apart of this 2 day enjoyable event.
