Options for single students or groups!

In addition to our regularly scheduled programming at The Trailhead, we offer private and group art lessons for children. Based on your child’s interests, we will match you with the appropriate instructor who is trained in his or her art medium.

A few options for lessons (not a complete list):

  • Learn to throw on the wheel
  • Get instruction in watercolor, oil, or acrylic painting
  • Learn how to make jewelry
  • Go out in the field with a pro photographer
  • Learn how to draw!

Lessons are scheduled with instructors who are also local Crested Butte artists and who are some of the best in their field!
