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.
Join us for a very special figure drawing edition of Drawing + Drinks! Draw from figurative inspiration and learn the fundamentals of the human form! We’ll cover everything from the observed figure to the narrative, and each session will introduce the skills needed to map the human face and figure. For an added twist, we’ll incorporate techniques from artists like Modigliani, Frida Kahlo and others. Students will use mixed media with foundations in graphite. No experience necessary.
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!
