the Art Academy of Colorado
the Art Academy of Colorado


The Art Academy is your place to discover and grow the artist within.


While we call our sessions 'classes' they are not your typical classroom learning experience. Each student works on their own project, being helped along by the teacher. We serve artists and would-be artists from middle school age through adults of all ages; from beginner to accomplished.

We find there is always more to learn and experience in art, and help our students in the realisation of their artistic pursuit, while constantly learning ourselves. We are all on the journey together, and those a little further along, or stronger, aid those who are still finding their way.

The Academy provides an inspiring, positive environment. The building also contains an Art Gallery and numerous artist studios where students may observe artists at work and their work in progress. There are also many works of art displayed throughout the building. The artists belong to the Main Street Creatives group, click here for the online site and here for more about the gallery.


If you have had the longing to create art, but have no idea how to get going; or if you are an artist who has had their art take second, third... umpteenth place because of life's resposibilities, but would like to give it a prime place again, or if you just need to have a place to go to fellowship with fellow artists and have positive input and instruction, then please consider the Art Academy as your place to do that.


You can ask for more information here.


If you would like to be kept informed of special events happening at the Academy and/or Gallery - please sign our Guestbook. We promise not to spam you, nor do we share your personal information.


The Mural

Brightonians and those driving into town, may have notice the charging Elephant, breaking through the upper storey of the old hotel on Bridge Street!!

This is the resulting mural of a year-and-a-half effort, whose genesis lay in Brighton's Little Big Idea.
