Washington Oaks paint-out

Mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 7, for the next scheduled paint-out of the First Coast Pastel Society. Our next paint-out is scheduled at Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Palm Coast. We are heading a little further south this month, but hope to be able to draw folks who have expressed an interest in our society from the Ormond Beach and Gainesville areas.

The park is situated between the Matanzas River and the Atlantic ocean, featuring the famous cochina beaches. In addition it contains the amazing formal gardens, featuring native and exotic species, that was created by former owners who gave the property to the state in 1965.

As this map of the park shows, there are nearly limitless choices for wonderful plein-air setups. Flowers should be in full bloom in the gardens.  Our paint-outs run from 8:30 AM to 1 PM, though folks often tend to stay later. But bring your lunch with you! In addtion to painting supplies you may also want water, hats, sunscreen, bug repellant. Come have fun with your fellow pastelists.
