Paint Out 2023

 9:00 AM-Noon

Saturday March 11 is CANCELLED



Cachuma Lake Campground

2225 Highway 154

(approximately a 24 mile/40 minute drive on a two-lane curvy road)

Paint Out April 8, 2023

Cachuma lake is full and a most beautiful sight. There are painting spots galore with views of the water, mountains, trees, boats and people. The campground charges a 10-dollar entrance fee per car for the day. Reservations are NOT required for day use. Maps are available at the entrance gate. We will meet along the Day Use Area indicated on the map.

Stay on the entrance road past the Marina.   Four yurts along the water will come next, which is the beginning of the Day Use Area. Anywhere along this stretch to the end are great places to paint with nearby parking. If you prefer, there are multiple other areas. One that I recommend checking out is at the end of the El Dorado Vista area.

For those who get hungry, the local restaurant, the Hook’d Grill, is excellent but busy and slow.  Snacks are available at the general store.

We hope to see you there. Please remember to sign in. The sheet will be on a silver Rav along the Day Use Area.

One of the great perks of being in SCAPE is having monthly collegial paint outs with like-minded nice people.  If you haven't been to one you will be hooked once you do!  It is always fun to paint in new and interesting locations of urban-scapes, landscapes and seascapes.  We meet at a location of scenic beauty often chosen in conjunction with an upcoming show. Whether you are experienced with plein air painting, interested in taking photographs or perhaps drawing for use in the studio later, or just want to share being in natural settings with others, it is worth checking out.

We have enjoyed gathering at Naples with ocean bluffs, agricultural land and mountains; a private organic farm in the Santa Ynez Valley near Buellton; Lake Carneros; an historic adobe and farm on the Gaviota coast, Arroyo Hondo Preserve; and a hilltop avocado ranch in the foothills.   We like to explore new venues, classic locations, and beautiful sights. 

There are certain paint outs that require a reservation as they are being held on private land or lands managed by one of our beneficiaries such as EDC: Coal Oil Point, Sedgwick, Salt Marsh.

As a member if you have access or live in a spot that offers an enticing view and would accommodate around a dozen painters to set up, please contact Filiberto Lomeli or Jerry Martin.  We would all much appreciate new ideas and new locations. Join Us!


Release of Liability:  

Please remember to always sign the Release of Liability at a Paint Out.  Look for Jerry or Fil or whoever else may be in charge of the Paint Out.  

What to Bring 

Bring sunscreen, a hat, maybe an umbrella, and a water bottle so that you can stay comfortable and hydrated throughout the day.
