The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (VCBF) has celebrated colour and creativity with local Plein Air artists for many years. This year, all artists - beginners and more are invited to join the group and paint or simply meet the artists and observe on April 20th.

The selected BC plein air artists will be working in their studios and on location throughout the Lower Mainland at the best blooming spots. Watch VCBF Facebook feed to find out where they are painting live, watch them on location and see the results at the gallery. All paintings will be for sale and benefit the VCBF & Van Dusen gardens.
