Upcoming Plein Air January 2020

What:   Plein Air
Where: St. Augustine, FL
When:  January 4, 2020, 9 AM to 1 PM

We celebrate our 8th anniversary in January and have an exciting adventure for our first plein air event of the year. For the first time we will be having a plein air event at a private home.

Please see your email for details about the event and the location. Since it's a private home I don't want to post all the address details here.

However I can say that it's a beautiful Victorian home in St. Augustine (built in 1898) and the grounds have lovely gardens, statuary, and beautiful scenery.

Feel free to bring a lunch to share, or even consider going out to eat for lunch somewhere afterwards. We always enjoy having a show and tell of our artwork at the end of the morning also.

Let's all hope now for lovely weather. My current St. Augustine forecast shows a high of 68 with rain showers in the morning, but we all know how forecasts can change between now and then!

Happy Holidays 2019

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season, and before we know it it will be 2020.  We began our official FCPS journey in January 2012 and it's been an amazing 8 years.

Earlier this month we had our usual FCPS holiday party which got off to a rocky start as no one showed up from the Cultural Center to unlock the doors! Fortunately the weather was pretty mild so while we tried to track someone down we had our annual painting gift exchange in the courtyard.

We were even about to set up the food in the courtyard when we finally reached someone from the Cultural Center who was able to come over and let us in.

There was some scrambling to get set up but then the holiday brunch was excellent as usual.

This was followed by a fun game of Pictionary.

Great fun for those able to attend, though there were some who couldn't make it that we missed as well.  The new year is also upon so so looking forward to more adventures in the new year.
