Florida Landscape Inspired by The Florida Highwaymen
Saturday | Oct. 3rd | 6:30 - 8:30PM
Come and view the PAC’s significant collection of nostalgic Florida Highwaymen Landscapes—and create one of your own! Select from a menu of Florida nature motifs and interpret the Highwaymen style your way. Wendy Marble will guide us on our painting journey, teaching us techniques she learned by observing Florida Highwayman Al Black. We will have many landscapes on hand to view for inspiration. For example, the Royal Poinciana often painted by Robert Lewis, the backwaters of Florida by Sam Newton, or you may want to be original and paint our very own Green Bridge over the Manatee River. We will be using acrylic paint with pastel chalk details as our mediums. It’s easy to do and so RICH with color! No prior art experience needed, just the love to play. We will apply a spray sealer to preserve your paintings at the end of the evening. Bring a friend and a dish to share. We will have the music, paints and canvases. Just come ready to relax and unwind. Doors open at 6:00 PM for mix and mingle. Painting workshop begins at 6:30PM. We will be observing social distancing guidelines, as such, space is limited. $20 includes all supplies needed for the workshop.

Florida Arts License Plate Program
The Florida Arts License Plate Program was created by the Legislature in 1994. Funds collected through the sale of these specialty plates are distributed to the counties where the plates are sold and are used to support arts organizations, programs, and activities within that county.
Counties receive money directly from the Department of Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles. Each county must designate a recipient organization to administer funds that support arts activities within that county.
How To Participate:
Want to purchase a Florida Arts License Plate? You can find your local tag agency using this list of Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Office Locations by county.
This program is not operated by the Florida Department of State. For more information about the administration of this program, contact the Specialty License Plate office at 850.617.3870.
