Following the success of our spring paint-out at Van Dusen, join FCA Hosts Esmie and Edgardo and your fellow plein air painters as you capture summer at Van Dusen Botanical Gardens.


You'll meet at 10.00AM in the visitor centre with our hosts, to be checked off and permitted into the garden. We enter the garden at 10.10am.


From there, you'll follow our hosts with your plein air supplies to a painting site within the garden. As a group you'll enjoy the great outdoors, feed off each other's enthusiasm for plein air painting and maybe pick up a tip or two.


Shortly before the day of the paint out, you'll recieve an email with a contact telephone number for an FCA member of staff or host, so if you're arriving late you can let us know.


Plein Air Paint Outs are a fun, social event hosted by the Federation of Canadian Artists, open to all artists regardless of if you're a member of the Federation. It's your chance to paint, socialise, learn what the Federation is about and above all, have fun!


Attendance to the garden for our group is a special rate of $6.50 for FCA members, or $9.00 for non-members. This covers your entry to the garden for the entire day. The group is limited to 20 artists so sign up soon to get this rate and join us for this session!
