More Information:

This is a chance to escape from the rest of the world for a week where all you have to think about is Plein Air painting, a 60,000 acre horse ranch, and chats and laughs with fellow Plein Air enthusiasts next to a fire pit.

This is an opportunity for artists to learn from some of the best in the field, to really work their craft in a relaxing, supportive, and inspiring environment, and truly grow as an artist.

It’s bound to be a valuable and rewarding experience. There’s also canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, log cabins to sleep in and fresh home cooked meals to eat…can’t get much better than that!


Please call 604.681.2744 or visit us in the FCA Gallery at 1241 Cartwright St, Vancouver BC V6H 4B7
