Mission San Luis Rey Paint/Sculpt-Out

Saturday, November 19 at 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

The San Diego Chapter welcomes you to a paint/sculpt-out at the Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside, CA on Saturday, November 19, 2022.

 

Background

Known as the “King of the Missions,” Mission San Luis Rey is the largest mission in the state of California, covering 950,400 acres. San Luis Rey was founded on June 13, 1798. It is one of two cruciform (cross-shaped) missions built by the Spanish in Southern California. San Luis Rey housed over 3,000 converted Native Americans who helped tend to the land and livestock. After Mexico gained independence in 1821, all California missions were secularized, resulting in the significant deterioration of the Mission San Luis Rey. The decline of the mission continued, until the Mexican Franciscans reoccupied it in 1892.

 

Features

Today, the San Luis Rey Mission Church takes up 56 acres of its original land. It is still an active church, serving as a religious and heritage site. Visitors are welcome to view features of the property such as the old lavanderia, historic ruin sites, convent arches, gardens, and the first pepper tree to be planted in the state of California.
