Team Art

We’re in the business of partnering. It’s a natural occurrence because there isn’t a class we offer, a workshop we build or an event we deliver that doesn’t provide an essential experience to the individual.

We began our fall/spring classes this week, and already we are seeing that artistic partnership starting to build. Classes are filling up with our open enrollment running through Sept. 26. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover just the art experience for you and your family.

You have dozens of classes to choose from: painting, mixed media, art journaling with Noemi Kosmowski and Terry Muldoon; pottery, sculpting, figure drawing and ceramics with Judy Davis, Kay Cochran, Alyssa Kirstein and Josefina Gordh; Karen Cochran, Brad Vierheller and Ashton Taufer will work their magic with singing, piano and guitar classes. Maurine Taufer and her fabulous dance faculty guide pre-ballet through senior company dancers through a variety of classes and ability levels. Fifth Day is back and better than ever. Students study art history, dance, pottery, music and more. Call us at 970-945-2414 or register online at and partner up with art.

We want to see you at the Hotel Colorado on Oct. 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. for the Culinary Arts Wine and Brewfest, our biggest fundraiser of the year. Great food, wine, brews and the best silent auction yet will all be there for your pleasure. Become a member at the Art Center as an individual, family or corporation and get tickets at a discount. You will have a marvelous evening sampling the very best culinary fare in the valley, and at the same time, you will be part of a very good thing — supporting the largest arts organization in the Roaring Fork Valley.

We focus on three areas of expertise, with our primary being arts education, closely followed by the production of high-quality community events, and art exhibits in our gallery and around Glenwood Springs.

Your participation in this fabulous night makes all the difference by supporting more than 60 in-house art, pottery, dance and music classes for children and adults; six collaborative outreach programs at the Two Rivers Community School, Glenwood Springs Middle School, Glenwood Springs Elementary School and Sopris Elementary School, as well as our large in-house world and culture program for students in the Re-2 School District. Best of all, you will help sponsor 50 annual scholarships every year to families in need.

Proceeds from this amazing night also help keep alive great community initiatives like the Summer of Music at Two Rivers Park and our Two Rivers Outdoor Art and Sculpture Project. We maintain the designation of the “Most Vibrant Art Community in the Country” because you help us continually raise the bar of artistic excellence that is our standard.

So, mark your calendar, buy tickets in advance and save, and we’ll partner up for a classic evening. See you there!
