Breckenridge is full of adventure, creativity and passion. The Colorado high country and majestic Rocky Mountains have long fueled artists’ inspiration, from painters such as Bierstadt and Remington to renowned photographers Jackson and Fielder. The sights, sounds and smells trigger your imagination and allow your thoughts to wander.
Now, The Town of Breckenridge has developed an outlet for your creative energy! Breck Create, located on Ridge Street in downtown Breckenridge, is the perfect place to share your artistic talents as well as learn new skills and techniques. The space is a series of small historic buildings all geared toward different mediums. From a hot shop metals workshop, a ceramics studio, printmaking, textiles and painting, there is truly something for everyone.
The space also offers an opportunity for resident artist to share their knowledge. Artist from all of the world arrive in Breckenridge to share their art and offer workshops open to the community. Much of the art and music offerings are made possible by volunteers.
