The ModboCo School of Art announces new 2016 classes for adults! Classes begin the week of August 29th.

Bijou St., 80903.  All classes include 9 sessions and are taught by award winning local artist Brett Andrus.  Now in its eighth year, the ModboCo School of Art offers classes for most ages and skill levels.  The ModboCo’s mission is to provide our students with an access point to art making, as well as a safe place to fail. We aim to celebrate our students’ growth, challenge them, and ensure quality in our teaching. At the end of the day, we want to help shape the cultural identity of our community, to create with integrity, to open possibilities, and to have fun in the process.  What are you waiting for? Register now!

Mondays from 7:30-9:30 pm, beginning August 29th, Sound Smart at the Museum 101, $150


Are you an artist looking for inspiration? Or somebody who just really appreciates art? Then join us for this art history class designed to introduce you to the major art makers and movements in western art over the last 700 years. We will learn about the movers and shakers that have shaped the art making process from the Northern Renaissance up to what happened last week. This will not be a date memorization class, this will be fun!

Advanced oil painters assemble! It’s time for oil painting boot camp!  This challenging course will allow you to deepen your oil painting technique through painting from life, lectures, some art theory, etc.  It’s time to take things to the next level.  Prerequisite: previous advanced oil painting students, or students who have finished Oil Painting 201.
