FCA members-only event



Don't miss this unique opportunity to paint with fellow FCA members at this nature-friendly, urban sanctuary, created as part of the development for the 2010 Winter Games Athletes Village.


Deep layers of soil have been added to Habitat Island to provide nourishment for new trees to grow. More than 200 native trees, as well as shrubs, flowers, and grasses that grow naturally in this region have been planted along the waterfront path and on the island. Boulders and logs are commonly found along the coastlines which provide a home for plants, small animals, insects, crabs, starfish, barnacles and other creatures. Surrounded by water at high tide, the island is also a sanctuary for birds. 


The FCA Plein Air Paint Out aims to celebrate the joy of painting outside, giving our members an opportunity to network and socialize with fellow artists who enjoy creating outside just as much. Open to all painters of any media. 


There will be no formal instruction, but members are encouraged to share their techniques/tips and experiences.


There is no cost to join us and paint, however, registration is required and limited to 30 people.  Therefore, please make sure to sign-up early using the button below.  Bring clothes for any weather, and, of course, whatever gear you want to paint with. When visiting the island, remember that it is an urban oasis that we would like to keep in its natural state. Please do not cycle, litter or bring your dog onto the island.
