FCPAP Paints at Big Talbot Island, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday November 16, 17, 18.
Time to get out and paint!! We will paint at Big Talbot Island at The Bluffs area. The entrance to the Bluffs is easily seen on the East side of A1A. There is parking, picnic tables and facilities (port-o-lets). There is a trail that leads down onto the beach which overlooks Nassau Sound and there are many large dead trees on the beach offering plenty of subject matter for artists. The park opens at 8:00 am and there is a $3.00 per car entry fee (honor system). Weather conditions for Friday and Saturday look to be on the cool side, but sunny. Temps on Friday expected to be in the 40s in the morning rising to low 60s during the day with NW winds about 10 mph, so a little breezy. Saturday is predicted to be in the 50s – high 60s with NNE winds at about 7 mph. Bugs should not be an issue, but be prepared. Bring sunscreen and water.
Once again First Coast Plein Air Painters has been invited to participate in Winterfest by having our artists paint throughout the day around the park. Please arrive earlier than 11:00 am to allow time to set up before the crowds arrive. Parking is available in the church parking lot across the street. This is a great time to make connections and have fun!  Be prepared to paint most of the day. Let Stephen Dunn know if you plan to participate so he has a head count to give to the organizers.
FCPAP Paints at Dutton Island Nature Preserve, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 14, 15, 16.
We will paint at Dutton Island Nature Preserve located on Dutton Island Road off Mayport Road. The park opens at 8:00 am. Plenty of marsh, trees and intracoastal views with a fishing pier on the North end of the Island.

FCPAP Paints Little Talbot Island
Friday and Saturday, April 13th and 14th.  8:00 am till whenever.
With more than five miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches, Little Talbot Island is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in Northeast Florida. Maritime forests, desert-like dunes and undisturbed salt marshes on the western side of the island allow for hours of nature study and relaxation. The diverse habitats in the park host a wealth of wildlife for viewing, including river otters, marsh rabbits, bobcats and a variety of native and migratory birds.
Directions: Exit I-295 on to Heckscher Drive (SR A1A) Eastbound. It’s about 10-12 miles to the entrance of the park, which will be on the right. Do not confuse with Hugenot Park which is before the Fort George Inlet Bridge. The entrance to Little Talbot is about 1/2 mile-1mile past the Bridge on the right. Nice dunes and beach access at the first parking area past the entry gate. There is another parking area where the park road ends. It also offers access to beach and dunes. There is also a nice wooded trail where you first enter the gate before getting to the guard station. Parking for the trail is just past the guard station on the left. No facilities on the trail.
Park hours are 8:00 am till sunset. $5.00 per carload (2-8 people). $4.00 per car with single occupant (per website)
