Gabriola Island Plein Air Retreat

Date: Oct 24-28, 2022

Location: The Haven Resort, Gabriola Island (map)

Costs: From $888


A few days of full time plein air painting at The Haven Resort on Gabriola Island which offers spectacular vistas: There’s the beach at The Haven, Descanso Bay or Drumbeg Park. Paint the beautiful sandstone formations at Malaspina Galleries or perhaps Entrance Island from Berry Point.

While we are not offering instruction on this retreat, there will be plenty of peer support and encouragement. Artists are free to choose where they wish to paint but painting as a group is encouraged. A list of some possible locations will be provided daily.

In the evenings we’ll gather for informal critiques (optional), lots of art talk and possibly some games and challenges!

We also have access to studio space should we require it.​
