FCA Members-Only Event



Don't miss this unique opportunity to paint with fellow FCA members at the tranquil Duck Pond of Ambleside Park in West Vancouver, BC. 


With a park that has a little bit of everything you should want and need, from beach views to a golf course, dog playplace to a cafe,  Ambleside Duck Pond makes you feel as though you are far, far away from all the action around.  Nestle away into the shade of willow trees, the grace of swans, and the sounds of nature.  



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 20 people for this Paint Out at Ambleside Duck Pond. Therefore, please make sure to sign-up early using the button below. Bring clothes for any weather, bug spray, suncreen and, of course, whatever gear you want to paint with. 

*If the weather forcast is not ideal, we will reschedule the paint out for another day shortly after
