The beauty of a Montana landscape seems to go on forever. In this unique Wilderness Workshop, you’ll put paint and your impressions to canvas using your own artistic interpretation, completely without boundaries. Abstract artist Danielle LaGoy will introduce you to a variety of techniques using palette knives and regular brushes, along with unconventional tools, so you can create a Montana masterpiece that is truly one-of-a-kind. You’ll leave Nature, Abstracted with a Montana memory of your own making and vision. All artistic skill levels and ages are welcome.

LaGoy is also available on a fee basis for private demonstrations or lessons.


Danielle LaGoy: Artist in Residency

Hailing from the Adirondack region of New York, Danielle LaGoy describes herself as a painter interested in the suspension and abstraction of the natural environment. “Throughout my life, I’ve learned to appreciate time alone to absorb my surroundings,” says LaGoy. She’s exhibited work and completed large-scale murals in New York, Utah, Arizona and Chicago. She also briefly lived in and explored the western coast of Ireland while learning “plein air” painting. A recent Missoula, Montana, transplant, LaGoy is currently working toward her MFA at the University of Montana while exhibiting her work around the West Coast.


All Wilderness Workshops are complimentary and are included in your stay.
