A NEW HOME FOR CREATIVE EXPLORATION


Ah Haa School for the Arts celebrates a summer of creativity and curiosity as we move into our new home at the Silver Jack Building in downtown’s Arts District in July 2021. Telluride’s new arts hub is a 10,000 square-foot, purpose-built community center with enhanced studios and thoughtfully designed classrooms that will spark expanded opportunities for participation.

For over 30 years, Ah Haa School for the Arts has been inspiring people of all ages to discover, nurture and celebrate their creative possibilities. Ah Haa is also home to the prestigious American Academy of Bookbinding located at the historic Stone Building on North Willow Street.

SUMMER 2021 UPDATE

Ah Haa School for the Arts is excited to move into its beautiful new home at the Silver Jack Building in the downtown Telluride Arts District and begin sharing programs, classes and workshops with the community. Telluride’s new arts hub is a 10,000 square-foot, purpose-built community center with enhanced studios and thoughtfully designed classrooms that will spark expanded opportunities for participation.
 
Our exact move-in date is very much dependent on construction operations, which are moving along toward completion. That said, our timeline has been set back a bit, which means we will not be able to offer public classes and workshops in June or July. This time will be dedicated to moving in and setting up our studios and classrooms in preparation for our public opening. We will also be able to utilize this time to “test-run” our brand new equipment to make sure we can operate fully and safely. It is our hope and expectation to open up to the public in August.
 
Our Ah Haa To Go Kit program will remain in place, with added kits and opportunities for art creation anywhere! Each kit features materials and instructions for completing a specific art project – from a simple bookbinding activity to embroidery and coiled basketry. 
 
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate many moving parts. This exciting time for Ah Haa represents years of planning, anticipation, and support, not to mention the vast wealth of talent our instructors have brought to the school over three decades.
 
Please be sure you’re on our Mailing List and keep checking our website for up-to-the-minute information on all things Ah Haa, including options for Ah Haa To Go Kits and a number of opportunities to help us celebrate Ah Haa’s reopening and 30 year anniversary. 
 
We look forward to seeing you soon!
