Paint Outs

6TH Annual Dog Fest

Canine Champion

Jacksonville, FL 2019

Location: Sea walk Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach, FL

Event Date: March 31, 2019

FCPAP have been invited to paint out for Canine Champion. The organization will allow artist to use their own photographs or take pictures of these lovable Golden or Black Retrievers! This will allow you to paint one of these lovable dogs ahead of time so you Have the chance to exhibit and sell your artwork. Details of this even are in the process of being worked on and will be announced in the future. 

Special Note: This is a fund raiser event. We are working on the details. Look for more information in the near future.

Being enthusiastic we try to paint out doors as often as we can as individuals, but we also paint as a group at least once a month. Check here, on our calendar page, or our Facebook page to find out where we will be next… it’s not as hard as “finding Waldo”. We will also inform you of other local non-FCPAP Paint Outs coming up.
