Event description


The Thrivent Member Network - Northwest and MontanaPBS Kids Club welcome you to attend a special art experience for children of all ages!


Join us for a Charlie Russell themed children’s painting activity and brief lesson on background and foreground that will be approximately an hour long. Program designed for ages 5 - 12 years but all are welcome!

This children’s lesson will include using different Charlie Russell pieces to identify the various elements within a painting. The children will start out painting together to create a background using a wet-on-wet method. While allowing the background to dry, each child will create their own element of the foreground that will then be glued onto the dried background to create a collaborative final piece that will be displayed at the movie screening night.
