Spring 2019 Paint Outs

Paint Out

June Paint Outs

Vilano Beach Nature Boardwalk & Vilano Beach

When: June 7TH, – 9TH – Starts @ 8AM

Vilano Beach View from A1A

The nature boardwalk, East side base of the Francis and Mary Usina Bridge. The Boardwalk offers views of the intracoastal waterway and marsh views, and there might be some shade found under the bridge.

Parking entrance: Directly past the bridge, Poplar Avenue, (which is in between the Bridge and Publix.) Meeting: Parking lot for the boardwalk 8:00 am. If painting from the boardwalk is not your thing, the town of Vilano Beach offers a pier and quaint architecture. Heading South on A1A go past the Publix and turn right on Vilano Road to access the pier and intracoastal waterfront. If you want the Ocean, turn left. Suggest lunch at Cap’s on the water Saturday and Sunday.

Beaches Museum and History Park

June 21ST – 22ND – 23RD Friday – Sunday

Beaches Museum – History Park – Historical architecture including a locomotive. The museum says it opens at 10:00 am but I believe the grounds open earlier. Hopefully the Seabreeze kicks in early.

July Paint Outs

Alpine Groves Park

July 12TH – !4TH


Alpine Groves Park is located on State Road 13 in Switzerland. The park opens at dawn, so plan on meeting around 7:30-8:00 am. Plenty to paint with old historic barns and homestead as well as views of the St Johns River. Lots of shade, so hopefully you can find locations that will help keep things a little cooler. Bring bug spray just in case. It is summer and mosquitoes and gnats can be an issue.

Nocturne Painting: San Marco

Thursday Evening, July 25

We will be painting in the evening in San Marco along St Johns Avenue and side streets in the shopping district and vicinity. Meeting Place: Balis Park (the gazebo) in the center of the San Marco shopping area. While this is a safe area, our recommendation to you is PAINTING IN PAIRS! so no one is painting alone. We will paint until 9:30 – 10:30 pm., or later if you wish, but as long as you’re with someone else.

PARKING in this area is at a premium, but there should be parking at the bank across the street, and along the side streets. Be sure where you’re parking is LEGAL parking. No one wants tickets. PLEASE do not block entrances or busy sidewalks.
