A little about our art program!

HANDMAKERY is a hands-on, art enrichment program for children & young adults (and coming soon ~ family + couples + adults} offering specialized classes, camps, workshops, special evenings, art parties and more!  Inspiring creativity, we focus on all parts of the creative process.  We believe in an all-encompassing approach to the visual arts and do our best to make it very well-rounded to include a little art history, art appreciation, art aesthetic, critique, celebration, community, connection, creativity, flavor + fun, and of course our favorite ~ hands-on + mixed media art-making!  Hands-on exploration includes painting, drawing, collage, assemblage, massive amounts of mixed-media, printmaking, 3D sculpture, up-cycled art, sewing, paper mache, construction, pottery & more one-of-a-kind crafting!  We are excited to bring local access to the children of the Roaring Fork Valley with over 20+ years of visual arts education experience to Carbondale | Colorado!  At HANDMAKERY we love to inspire children, develop creative confidence, and create a community connection within a colorful + creative environment!  Jump in on all the ART-ful action!  Give your child the experience that keeps on giving throughout a lifetime ~ CREATIVITY!

We’re loving our beautiful + sweet studio in downtown Carbondale | CO on Main Street in the heART of the Carbondale Creative District!  New spaces, new faces, new places at 449 Main Street!

HANDMAKERY was established in the spring of 2013.  Our Main Street studio location opened in the fall of 2017 and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be in the heART of our community!
