Did you know there are many events in Crested Butte and Gunnison? See live music, take an art class, volunteer, play trivia, watch (or participate in) a ski or bike race, and more! Check this calendar to see what’s going on.
This course is best suited for those who have a little experience with drawing and want to explore a different medium or venture into portraiture. Faces can present one of the ultimate challenges in the art world. I’ll teach you many different tips and tricks for what makes a true portrait different from a drawing of a face. Being that charcoal can have so many different effects and emotions coming from one medium. It’s one of the best tools for portraits. This is the perfect follow up course from my skeleton of Art course. Instructor: Katie Briggs. $195/person, $165.75/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!
