The city-operated Glenwood Springs Community Art Center holds an open house this Saturday. Residents can learn about the center’s offerings and even try out some of the classes.
The Sixth St. building that formerly housed the Center for the Arts stopped offering classes in 2017 amid the financial struggles of its operating organization, the Glenwood Springs Arts Council. The space is now overseen by the city’s Parks and Recreation department. Last year, it made improvements to the historic building and re-opened what’s now called the Community Art Center with limited classes.
Patrick Miller, the city’s marketing and events coordinator, says the city wants to offer a well-rounded slate of classes to attract a variety of interests. The center currently offers arts and crafts, dance and martial arts.
Instructors will be on hand to answer questions during the open house. The city will also seek feedback from attendees on what they’d like to see from the Community Art Center in the future.
The open house runs from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
