We are growing a healthy arts community and recognize the importance of our local artists. The Breckenridge Arts District campus features two studios to rent to local artists at an affordable rate. Studios are located in the Fuqua Livery Stable and lower level of the Ceramic Studio. Artists are selected based on the excellence of their work and public participation abilities. Our working studio program provides affordable space for local artists to work and thrive. In return, we ask that artists host open studio hours and workshops that engage the community.

Artists in need of workspace

Are you a local artist in need of space to complete a project? We welcome the opportunity to let you use the Fuqua Livery Stable or Old Masonic Hall when we are not hosting another workshop, demonstration or event in one of these studios. Artists must bring their own materials and are responsible to protect our tables and work surfaces as well as clean-up after each use. Artists are asked to have the studio open for public observation and will be educated on how to be a campus ambassador.

To discuss your needs and to schedule time and space, please contact Jenn Cram at 970 547 3116 or jenn@breckcreate.org.

Instructors

We are always open to hosting creative workshops.  If you are an artist interested in sharing your medium through hands-on workshops, please contact Jenn Cram at 970 547 3116 or jenn@breckcreate.org. Please be prepared to share examples of your work, resume and discuss your teaching style.  Instructors for children’s workshops are subject to a background check.  We welcome the chance to get you involved with our creative community on campus.

Please note that we schedule classes three-to-six months in in advance. Thank you for your interest.

Calls to Artists

Breckenridge Creative Arts seeks to present innovative work that is new to Breckenridge and Colorado. BCA encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics, and welcomes artists engaging in the broadest spectrum of artistic practice. With excellence, diversity and relevance as core values of BCA, our goal is to continue to introduce the Breckenridge community and its guests to the works of regional, national and international artists of the highest caliber. 

A multi-layered programming team guides BCA’s artistic vision and curatorial framework. Our experienced team of arts professionals shapes the artistic quality of programming selected to ensure the highest international standard while truly reflecting the unique character of Breckenridge.

We will post calls to artists throughout the year to engage artists in our residency programs, educational curriculum, exhibition and performance opportunities, and other curated experiences. We are currently seeking project proposals for the programs noted below.
