Sunday Painter is proud to be based out of town made famous by America’s beloved cowboy artist, Charlie Russell.

Sunday Painter organizes a variety of events for artists in the area and would love to have you join us! 

Are you a painter who would like to join a group of like-minded artists? 
Can you imagine plein-air painting as a next step in your personal development?

Membership to Sunday Painter is open to any artist interested. Everyone is welcome to join! There is no fee to join. Members just need to have a desire to paint or draw and enjoy interacting with fellow artists.

Sunday Painters have a great time at our events and painting outdoors is a special treat. We take pictures of everyone and add them to our webpages to share how the paint out went and to see everyone's progress. 


  • Weekly paint-outs (or paint-ins)
  • Guest lectures and demos
  • Group events/tours 
  • Museum/gallery tours
  • Group critiques
  • Annual exhibitions
  • Quarterly statewide group paint-outs (locations determined by popular request) 
  •  Our events build upon Montana’s rich art heritage and tradition. Outdoor painting puts an emphasis on preservation of wilderness areas for future Montanans to enjoy.

  • Retreats and regional paint-outs give artists the opportunity to capture and preserve the Big Sky Country through artistic expression.
  • The best chances to learn come from the many paint-outs Sunday Painter hosts regularly.
  • Paint-outs give artists opportunities to paint on scenic private lands, or in locations that they might not have otherwise known about. 


Sunday Painter Outings are always...

  • Supportive and Encouraging
  • Respectful to ALL (Attendees are your peers, not paid instructors.)
  • Non-profit and non-commercial. (Selling products/instruction or marketing events not welcome here - sorry.)
  • Responsible & Clean (Sunday Painters leave our work spaces cleaner than we found them).
  • Quiet (Please no radios or headphones.)
  • Molly the yorkie crashes the paint out and has to get paint removed
    from her paws  after running across a palette.
  • Pet Free (on or off leash) (Sorry, but some venues do not allow pets and sometimes pets can get into art supplies by accident.)
