Plein Air Immersion – Sept 26, 2017

September 26 - September 29


Are you headed to Montana for the Hockaday Museum’s Plein Air “Paint Out”? Pack your easel for an immersive 3 night stay at Walking Lightly Ranch, located at the northern end of the Flathead Valley. Carry your basket lunch with you and spend the day painting. In the evenings, share works in progress, socialize with fellow artists, stargaze, or just soak up the peace and quiet of our 400 acres nestled between state lands and national forest.

Paint our horses, garden, and orchard or choose from the wide variety of landscape from forest to hills to vistas. We have lakes, wild flora and fauna, some mowed trails and some wild ones. We offer a guided “walkabout” on the first day to familiarize artists with potential painting spots, some close by the main lodge and some farther afield. We can’t guarantee sun but we can promise comfort, beauty, and inspiration on the very edge of the grid.

Located 20 minutes northwest of Whitefish, MT, we have 10 rooms available for the nights of Sept 26 – 29th. Three wholesome, nourishing, vegetarian meals each day are included in the flat rate of $750 – many ingredients are grown on site and locally sourced by our chef. Onsite extras include yoga and massage.

Contact  jenny@walkinglightlyranch.org to secure your spot.
