Dates: Sunday, March 17 and 24, 2013
Time: 9:00 am
Location: Eagle Creek Community, 480 Island Landing Dr, St Augustine, FL 32095
Eagle Creek has been selected as the first plein air drawing and painting location on our new spring 2013 schedule of events. Eagle Creek is a residential community just about a mile north of the airport. By driving all the way through the community’s main street, Island Landing Drive, artists will reach a stretch of unpaved road which offers some outstanding views of marshland and distant pines. We worked here previously in October 2012 and truly enjoyed the variety of vantage points from which to work.
To get there, travel north on US-1 toward Jacksonville and pass the Northeast Florida Regional Airport. Just after Village Academy’s sign on your right, turn right onto Island Landing Drive and enter the Eagle Creek community. Continue on Island Landing Drive for about a mile and the paved road will eventually turn to dirt, opening up to some splendid natural views. Go a little further on the dirt road until you find a wider area to park off on the side. Weather permitting, we’ll work here next Sunday morning as well.
