Dos Pueblos Ranch  (Dos Pueblos Institute)


NOTICE: THIS PAINT OUT WILL BE OPEN ONLY TO SCAPE MEMBERS DUE TO LIMITED ACCESS.

On the Gaviota coast, the original inhabitants were of Chumash origin. At the Ranch there were two villages on bluffs over the ocean with the outlet of Dos Pueblos Creek forming a small lagoon between. Please look at the Ranch’s website dospueblosinstitute.org. You will find an interesting history of the ranch and the Gaviota coastal area. The mission of the current stewards of this environmental treasure is available as well. 

There are several areas to the ranch, including that of the primary residence with ancillary housing, multiple old beautiful outbuildings, including carriage houses and workshops, and meadows rolling to the ocean. Originally this property stretched from El Capitan beach to where the airport is now. 

This paint out will be limited to the area along the entrance road which includes the old stables, woodland, and ending at the beach, cliffs and bluffs. One may park along the lane or at the beach. Bathrooms are available at the beach.

See directions to the ranch below. After exiting the freeway and going through the underpass, you will come to a stop sign. Go straight ahead on the entrance road to this area. You will now be on the ranch with the road ending at the beach. It is OK to park along this road if you see a site you would like to paint. Do not take the road that bears to the right, this is a separate property.

Please be sure to sign two separate waivers. One is for Scape and the other is for Dos Pueblos Institute.  I know you will appreciate painting on this special property.

Directions:  From Santa Barbara continue north on 101 to the Dos Pueblos Canyon Exit.  The offramp becomes a frontage road.  Stay on it turning left under the freeway.  After 100 yards you will reach a stop sign.  From the stop sign continue straight onto the Ranch. Address:  La Casa Grande Circle, Goleta

We hope to see you there,  The Paint Out Team


THE JOY OF SCAPE PAINT OUTS 

By Jerry Martin

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 SCAPE 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 Colin Schildhauer, Filiberto Lomeli or Jerry Martin.  We would all much appreciate new ideas and new locations. Join Us!
