The Emerson, Sweet Pea Festival, and S.L.A.M. are joining forces again in our “All for one, Art for All” campaign for Give Big Gallatin Valley. The collaboration was such a success last year that we all agreed to go even bigger this year with Give Big with Bob. Following Bob Ross’s philosophy that anyone can paint we are creating an event where anyone can give.

Join us for the largest community painting class in the valley! Three sessions will be offered in the Emerson Ballroom, each taught by a local artist. Pre-registration is required and there is a class fee to cover materials and expenses. Beer will be available for purchase. Big hair, big hearts, and big fun are all encouraged!

Discover the many joys of painting with a local guest instructor in these big hair, big fun, big giving classes. Gather your friends, share your vision, and support three fantastic community organizations.
