Arts & Culture

Telluride isn't just about skiing. It's just one of many wonderful offerings. You won't be disappointed with alpine adventures, but scratch the surface a little deeper, and you'll find much more. For the second time in two years, Telluride has been recognized by the state of Colorado for its commitment to the arts, sharing the prestigious Governor’s Arts Award with the town of Creede in 2010 and most recently by the Colorado Creative Industries as a "Colorado Creative District."

Telluride's robust cultural life is as much a surprise to the uninitiated as the double rainbows that make rogue appearances at end of the valley during the summer. Insiders, however, know that the art scene is vibrant  and sets this region apart from almost every other ski resort in the country.
 

ART CLASSES:

Looking to express your creative side during your visit? Telluride has a variety of art class opportunities available year-round from painting, photography, sculpture and pottery to theatre, music, bookbinding and more! The Ah Haa School for the Arts offers robust seasonal programing that includes classes at the American Academy of Bookbinding. Additionally, Telluride Theatre offers a variety of acting classes.
