Corner of Aviles St. and Bravo Ln. – January 15th and 22nd
Directly in front of the Father O’Reilly House Museum at the corner of Aviles Street and Bravo Lane is a small park that is open to the public. Anonymous Artists will meet here at 9am to find a drawing or painting. Weather permitting, we will work here for two Sundays on January 15th and 22nd. If you plan to participate, your best bet for parking may be along the bayfront near Santa Maria Restaurant. Bravo Lane is directly across the street from the dock entrance to Santa Maria.

Bridge of Lions Dock – January 29th and February 5th
As a part of the Bridge of Lions renovation, a small viewing dock was added beside the bridge which grants a unique view of the town. Standing on the dock at 9am, the rising sun will be at our backs, allowing us to comfortably draw or paint the historic and faux-historic buildings along the bayfront and their reflections off the water. The closest parking spot will be on the bayfront across from Harry’s Restaurant. We’ll work here two Sunday mornings, on January 29th and February 5th. Please Keep in mind that the dock’s railing will require artists to stand for the duration. Wear comfy shoes! View the dock.
Corner of Charlotte St. and Artillery Ln. – February 12th and 19th
Our next Sunday morning drawing session will be at the corner of Charlotte Street and Artillery Lane by De Noel Pastry Shop and White Peony. This colorful spot is visually rich with historic architecture, tall trees lining one side of Aviles, and historic flags flying out over the narrow brick lane. Anonymous Artists will meet here at 9am to find drawings and paintings. We’ll work at this location for two Sundays on February 12th and 19th. To park nearby, find a spot along the bayfront near the Municipal Marina and O.C. White’s Restaurant. Artillery Lane is a narrow little street, but is not hard to find with a mint green building on one side and pink building on the other. View this drawing and painting location.
Fountain of Youth Marsh Observation Deck – February 26th and March 4th
Late in December of 2011, the Fountain of Youth Archaelogical Park completed construction on a new 600-foot observation deck that leads out into a picturesque marsh. If the weather is kind to us, the Anonymous Artists will work here on two Sunday mornings, February 26th and March 4th. The Fountain of Youth Park is free to St. Johns County residents with a driver’s license. While the park normally opens at 10am, we have been invited to enter the park early at 9am by using the park exit, which will be open for park staff. View the new observation deck.
