Batik Watercolor Saturday, 10 – 12:30 pm. October 8. Wax and watercolor sound like an unusual combination, but put them together on textured rice paper and WOW! You get a look like no other medium. You need no experience with watercolor in this class and the materials we’ll use are very simple. Students will leave with a complete painting on a gallery stretched canvas ready for display. Instructor: Deirdre Covert $50/student $42.50/member
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
