Education Classes for Kids & Adults

Education is an integral part of the Arts Center’s mission, and our three-building complex provides a variety of studio and classroom spaces. Over 100 arts and leisure classes are offered per quarter for adults and children. These classes span from single day workshops to several weeks of learning in a vast range of topics and skills. The Arts Center also offers a variety of courses for educators. 


Customize a class for your group! 

With assistance from the Sangre de Cristo School of Arts, design your own class, workshop, team-building artwork, or a professional development event. Design a new workshop or enhance your existing program for creative growth in your business, school, or organization! Examples include group mural painting, creative clay work, improvisational comedy, and much more. To discuss the possibilities call Jerica Khosla, Director of Learning (719) 295-7200 ext. 7205.

Early development programs are available.  

Creativity is a catalyst to address the emergent literacy in children. The arts are children’s first languages. Play is the way children develop, learn, grow, and thrive.  Click here to inquire about how to expand your teachings.
