Clothing - West Coast weather can be sunny, cold and wet - all on the same day - so rain-wear and gumboots are a must have. Similarly an umbrella for your easel would also be beneficial, but not mandatory.
* If you are an experienced plein air painter, just bring your usual supplies. The individual instructor lists (coming soon) are for your information only. If you have any supply questions please contact the Federation office: 604-681-2744
