Hosted by Kathleen & Robert Theriault

LeMistral Plein Air Painting Adventures offers participants the opportunity to share and experience the adventure and joy of plein air painting at remote locations only accessible by boat in the Southern Gulf Islands, one of the New York Times’ 52 Places to Go in 2016. You’ll experience the sights and sounds of the spectacular West Coast, welcomed by the orcas, dolphins, seals, eagles, otters and cormorants! We’ll cruise along the arbutus-lined shores en route to remote daily painting locations and at the end of the day we’ll kick back at the WhaleKum Inn, enjoy a nutritious and delicious meal while sharing our plein air experience and preparing for the next day’s adventure. This will be a plein air painting experience like no other! Experience the magic of the Southern Gulf Islands and the joy of learning from Master Plein Air Painting Instructors. We know you’ll want to return next year!

Plein-Air Painting with Perry Haddock May 19-26, 2017

Don't Miss Out! Only a few seats remaining.

Like a jazz musician who improvises, integrating freedom of expression with well honed skills, a plein air painter strives to capture a moment, an expression of “being there”.
