Visual Arts on Vacation

Create a custom class, or choose from tons of options on our existing schedule.  Here are a few ideas for private art classes that teach you how to create a perfect vacation souvenir:

Schedule a private painting class to learn how to paint local scenery, including aspen trees, mountains, and Vail wildflowers depending on the season. 

Paint your own watercolor Postcards From Paradise.  Learn various watercolor techniques and apply these skills to create watercolor postcards.  Send them to your friends at home to let them know you are having a blast in Vail!

Create your own clay masterpieces from scratch, such as Vail magnets or Vail picture frames, or choose a paint pottery item to decorate as a souvenir or a gift. (Please note these pieces will need to be fired in the kiln – they can be picked up later in the week or mailed to your home)

Visual Arts Vacations can be reserved by calling Alpine Arts Center or speaking to your hotel’s concierge who can arrange the day for you.  We look forward to adding a creative twist to your time in Vail that we are sure will make this vacation one you will never forget!

Private Parties

Do you have a milestone coming up? Planning a wedding shower, bachelorette party, or baby shower? A private party at Alpine Arts Center is the perfect way to celebrate.  We’ll work with you to design a project that you and your friends and family will absolutely love.

Party Ideas!
-Host your wedding shower at Alpine Arts Center and create a paint pottery dish set for the bride to be.
-Reserve our space for your bachelorette party and do a Cocktails & Canvas class, or schedule an evening of life drawing with a nude male model!
-Hire us to paint your wedding ceremony on site. It will provide entertainment for your guests and also capture your special day on canvas. 
-Plan your next baby show at Alpine Arts Center!  It's a great space for food, drinks, games, and crafts such as decorating onesies or creating a paint pottery alphabet for the nursery!
-For your next family gathering or birthday party, invite everyone in for Family Painting Days or a pottery wheel class.

Remember, we're mobile and can come to you for any occasion.  We can work with you to come up with an original idea for your next party or big event! We've hosted parties at private homes, in hotel residences, on top of the mountain, on a bus from Denver to Vail, at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, & more - tell us your idea and we will make it happen.

Send us info about your private party and date.  We’ll get back to you with the perfect party plan!
