A multi-media class to explore and experience Telluride’s amazing Valley Floor!
Sometimes on drizzling summer mornings, the rainbow ends on Telluride’s ValleyFfloor, and it is a place of treasure indeed! Elk herds and river bends and bike trails and open space. But it wasn’t always this way. For six weeks, let’s play with words and images as we explore the natural and human history of the Valley Floor. What did it used to look like? Who else lived here? What could it look like if it it hadn’t been preserved? Taught by artist Ann Cheeks, poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, and performance poet Elissa Dickson, this six-week class is for anyone who is curious about building bridges between imagination and fact, between art and activism. Our daily play will culminate in a final creative project.
For Intermediate and Middle School Students. Funding for this class has been made possible through a generous grant from the Valley Floor Preservation Partners, who are celebrating the 10th anniversary of this historic preservation with a variety of events this spring.
