Sunday Painter meets on SUNDAYS. Sunday Painter is a group of local artists dedicated to the tradition of painting and drawing directly from life.

During the spring and summer seasons, we select sites within Montana that provide painters with beautiful farmlands, mountain ranges, waterways, forests, open spaces, and some historic destinations. Locations may include urban or rural settings, local attractions, hiking to scenic spots, artist camp-outs, day trips and regional art tourism.

During the fall and winter seasons, we hold indoor art workshops for figure drawing and figure painting.

This fall and winter, Sunday Painter meets indoors at the Great Falls Public Library, for Sunday afternoon figure drawing and painting workshops.

Great Falls Public Library has generously provided Sunday Painter the large conference room on the basement level.

Love the Outdoors?

Sunday Painters enjoy the camaraderie, support and safety of painting together. Combine your love for the outdoors with art! Paint "Alla Prima" (completed in a single session). The resulting art and experience are completely different from art made from photos alone in a studio. Don't paint from your iPad when you can paint from life!

ALL are Welcome

Meet up with old friends and make new ones! Network with like-minded people who share your interest in art. Join us and become a “Sunday Painter” too!

Whether this is your first day making art outdoors, whether you are a potter, a fiber artist, a writer, a photographer, or a skilled painter, the point is to make art and have a good time doing so!

With Sunday Painter there is: No Agenda, No Pressure, No Competition, No Criticism, No Show or Exhibition. There's just the support of friends. Sunday Painter welcomes ALL artists of ALL levels!
