Tybee Arts Plein Air Painters (TAPAP)

  • Lazaretto Creek Pier 1 Old US Hwy 80 Tybee Island, GA, 31328 United States

LOCATION: We will meet at the Public Fishing Pier at Lazaretto Creek off of Hwy 80. Come and work while the weather is cooler and before it becomes too chilly to work. I have painted with jacket and gloves on but when the temps hit 50 degrees, we will have a cutoff point for the year. There are views of shrimp boats, little colorful buildings, birds, and water. There is even a distant view of Cockspur Lighthouse. 

FYI :  Parking is FREE here. Turn off of 80 at the Lazaretto Creek sign . There are usually cars parked near the entrance because there is a boat launch there. Go all the way to the end of the road (great marsh views)   Guests are always welcome. 

We have just 3 more painting dates including this Wednesday.  1st and 3rd Wednesdays through Nov 16.  We have decided not to schedule Saturdays this Fall. 

  • Bring LOTS of WATER and SUNSCREEN. There is some shade but not everywhere
  • Bring a HAT to keep off glare which distorts colors & to protect you from the sun
  • Bring BUG SPRAY        
  • Reference photos are handy so bring a camera if you want to
  • Bring plastic bag for trash and take it when you leave
