What: End of the season plein air paint-out and picnic
When: Saturday, June 6, 9 AM to 1 PM
Where: Castaway Island Preserve, Jacksonville, FL

This week is IAPS week, and lots of our FCPS members are out in New Mexico this week. We hope they are having lots of fun, and we hope to hear all about it later, but we can have lots of fun here too.

This year we are having our end of season paint-out and picnic in a northern section of our membership range, at Castaway Island Preserve in Jacksonville.

Castaway is a lovely little gem on the Intracoastal Waterway. It's a long slender park with walking trails that parallel the road into the park that are shaded, give wonderful views of the salt marshes, and also harbor small gardens along the pathways.

You can also go out on the boardwalk trails to get even more and different views of the salt marshes.

The boardwalk at the far end of the park leads out to a great view overlooking the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway.

There are also several picnic areas where we can meet at mid-day for lunch and, if we choose, a show and tell of the art work from the morning.

This is our last formal get-together before we come back in the fall. Don't forget that we will kick off the fall with our show at the JCA. Paintings for that show will be received on Friday, September 4th, which is even before our first fall meeting (which will be the following day, September 5th) so make sure you paint during the summer! We have wall space to fill up in September.

I look forward to seeing you this Saturday before our summer break. I hope the weather will hold and we can have a great day of painting and picnicing at Castaway.
