The New Season

What:   Fall kick-off meeting
When:  Saturday, September 7, 2019, 10 AM to 12 noon
Where: Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach

I hope everyone is looking forward to the upcoming fall season (and maybe some cooler weather?).  Our year will begin with a demo by Kevin Arthur who is a noted pastel portraitist. 

Kevin presented for us three years ago but we have many new folks since then and even us oldtimers can benefit from Kevin's approach.

The last time Kevin demoed for us his model was our own founder, Lyn Asselta. Who will be the model this time? Come to the meeting and find out.

Summer and Fall

We hope everyone has been having a great summer. We began summer this year with our workshop from Tony Alain, an amazing English pastelist.

All those who attended said it was well worth it.

And many who couldn't were able to come to his public demo on the Sunday following the workshop.

I hope everyone wound up in a painting mood and were able to enjoy getting things done over the summer.

Now our fall season is approaching and we hope you'll enjoy the things coming up.

Our fall kickoff meeting will be on Saturday, September 7, at the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach and we look forward to seeing one another again after the summer hiatus. Noted pastel portraitist Kevin Arthur will do a demo for us.

Then mark Saturday, October 5 on your calendars for our first plein air of the season at beautiful Alpine Groves Park on route 13 in Switzerland, FL, on the east bank of the St. Johns River.

And later that month we are having a one-day workshop with Donna Grasso on Saturday, October 26. If you don't know Donna yet you'll definitely want to.

So keep an eye open here and in the calendar and in your emails, and we'll have a lot more details coming up about upcoming events.
