Manning Provincial Park, BC
Presented and organized by the Federation of Canadian Artists
The Plein Air retreat is our largest education and social event of the year. By attending the 2018 Plein Retreat you'll make personal connections with the instructors and 60 of your peers as well as discover amazing techniques to transform your painting skills. Each day we'll go out painting and we have optional social events planned for each evening.
Our 2018 retreat takes place in beautiful E.C. Manning Provincial Park. Located in the heart of the Cascade Mountains, it is within a three hour drive from either Vancouver or the Okanagan. The geographic, scenic, historic, flora and fauna diversity in the park combined with easy access are the prime factors that make this park a favourite setting for many professional artists.
Studio work is important - but there is no replacement for painting outdoors. Just like a photograph isn't a replacement for a painting, working from a photograph isn't a replacement for working outdoors. Working en plein air can add life, colour, and details to your work. Attending this week-long retreat will help develop your plein air skills.
