Nature & outdoors



Richmond Artists Guild and their plein air group Men in Hats invite you to try painting outside! No instruction but plenty of inspiration, all mediums and ages welcome to paint along or watch. Please respect the space and comfort level of other participants. Shady Island, the shoreline, bollards, a long wharf with interesting views over Paramount shipyards and toward the Steveston waterfront one side, the brightly coloured homes along South Dyke on the other. Just a couple of blocks further East along Dyke Road London Farm offers a beautiful historic house and grounds also. Painters and spectators have plenty of space to spread out and find a vista they like, there are cafes and washrooms nearby, free but somewhat limited street parking. Those who’ve never tried it before may want to bring either an easel and painting/drawing materials or a chair and sketchbook or mobile device with a sketching app. Please dress appropriate for the weather, allowing that you feel cooler standing still. Consider a hat and sunscreen for sunny days, a mask, paper towels or wipes for your hands, water and a snack. Please respect the spaces we’ll be visiting, do not trespass beyond public areas and leave nothing behind. There’s no registration, check in or fee, but as with all events please stay home if you are feeling any symptoms, have been travelling or in contact with anyone who may have been infected.

Tue 11 Oct
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
