PAPTC Painting Site

This Tuesday and next, May 3 & 10, PAPTC will paint at Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce. The Gardens consist of an assortment of specialty areas including a Japanese Garden, Reflection Garden, Herb Garden, Rainforest Display, Native Plants Garden and a Palm & Cycad Walk. It's a lovely and fun place to paint. They are open 9 to 5 and admission is $6.00.

From downtown Fort Pierce you can go one of two ways: The more scenic route is to go south about 3 miles on Indian River Dr. Turn right (west) onto Savannah Rd. Go about .2 miles. The Garden parking lot is on the right. OR you can go south on US-1 from downtown/Orange Ave area about 2.5 miles through the Virginia Ave intersection. Pass Gardenia Ave, which is the next stoplight. Proceed one more block to Savannah Rd (no stoplight). Look for a Super Video Store on SE corner at Savannah Rd and Heathcote signs. Turn left (east) onto Savannah Rd; go two blocks. The Garden is on the left.

See you there -- Lori
