TELLURIDE PAINTING SCHOOL

ENCOURAGING STUDENTS OF ALL LEVELS TO FIND THEIR ARTISTIC VOICE

A unique program of excellence, offering instruction from and interaction with a diverse faculty of working painters, inspiring curiosity and innovation in a stimulating and supportive environment, all nestled in the phenomenal landscape of Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. While most painting schools can offer students intensive technical instruction, few also emphasize the important journey that all artists must take to discover their own unique voices, or celebrate the courage it takes to express that voice in their work. This is the ethos of the Telluride Painting School – to help students navigate the process of creating deeply meaningful and uniquely personal work through comprehensive and provocative instruction.
