Artist Workshop Weekends

Montana provides the beauty, we provide the art supplies!

…all you need to bring is your desire to create and your spirit of adventure!

It’s no wonder that artists flock to Montana to seek inspiration from the breathtaking scenery, majestic wildlife and vibrant western culture that flourishes in our rustic setting. Under the gentle tutelage of prominent Western artists, seek your own muse and learn how to summon it onto your canvas. Artist Workshop Weekends at Triple Creek Ranch offer a unique opportunity to work alongside masters of oil, watercolor, pastels and sculpture and to engage with these artists on a personal level over the course of a relaxing long weekend.

Artists will guide guests in this hands-on painting and sculpting experience. Participants will be provided with art supplies, blank canvas and a frame for your finished piece. Once your mediums have sufficiently dried, we will ship your finished art.


Expanding upon the concept of our Artist Workshop Weekends, a premier western artist will live on ranch for select long weekends, offering guests new opportunities for discovery and interaction. For our third summer of programming, we are delighted to welcome Joe Kronenberg, Rick Kennington, Brenna Kimbro, and Chad Poppleton to the ranch for residency weekends.
