My hometown, Breckenridge, Colorado 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 our imagination and allows our thoughts to wander.
Now, The Town of Breckenridge has developed an outlet for our 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.
This outdoor space and lawn area often become a forum for yoga and ecstatic dance as the fresh mountain air pulses through your body. Maybe it's the lack of oxygen… but something about life at nearly 10,000 feet makes people want to move and breathe in a way I've never seen before. Just like spending time by the ocean, allowing the ebb and flow of the tide to carry you, the puirty of our untainted mountain air ignites your creative energy. Feel free to let loose if you come for a visit. From personal experience, I can assure you that once you start to move, flow, wiggle.. whatever you call it, someone from our little mountain community will be quick to join.
Keep close to Nature's heart.. and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. - John Muir
