The Retreat is the Federation of Canadian Artist's largest educational and social event of the year.
The 2021 Retreat takes place at 70 Mile House, British Columbia where we will be residing at the Flying U, Canada's oldest continually running ranch. You will experience some of the most beautiful plein air painting locations Northern BC has to offer!
We have the entire ranch to ourselves, so being responsible and socially distant are no problems. Where possible, each participant will have their own private accommodations. If you would like to share your accommodation with someone in your "bubble" please call the office to make your booking.
In the company of our four Master Instructors (Janice Robertson, Maria Josenhans, Kit Bell and Ann Willsie) you'll spend your days creating and developing your skills, while painting en plein air. In the evenings you will have the opportunity to join us and your group for fun social events or to take the time to relax and explore your surroundings.
We look forward to you joining us!
