Program #21008RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Led by professional artists, capture spectacular Rocky Mountain vistas as you learn about different media: watercolor, pastel, or oil and acrylic. Whether you want to paint vast mountain landscapes or more intimate scenes of seasonal beauty, polish your technical skills, understanding of aesthetics and strong composition, and develop your personal style. Culminate your week in a group show.


Highlights

• Enjoy individual and group instruction in the medium of your choice as you work in studio and “en plein air” in a mountain valley surrounded by peaks reaching 12,000 feet.
• Glean nuggets of advice from professional art instructors, put what you’ve learned into practice at all hours in our studio, and cap your exceptional week with a group show.
• Encounter extraordinary natural beauty during invigorating free-time hikes as you view woods, wildlife, cascading streams, and breathe crisp, clean air that stimulates your senses.
