Breck Create’s Artist-in-Residence program offers regional and national artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way.

Artists-in-Residence spend 2-4 months in a live/work studio in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures nestled under majestic snow-capped peaks in cozy downtown Breckenridge. During the school year, artists serve as guest instructors in Summit County schools, providing support and supplemental curriculum to teachers. In the summertime, artists identify and collaborate with a community partner or organization on educational programs. Artists have ample time to explore place-based narratives in their own work—whether that means interpreting Breckenridge’s cultural environment, spectacular mountain setting or rich local history. 

Artist expectations include: facilitating two weekly open studios (on campus), instructing weekly lessons in schools and on campus, participating in on-campus public events, and collaborating with a community partner. Artists with teaching experience will be given priority.

Artists receive a biweekly stipend of $600 to cover expenses and may take classes and open studios at no cost based on availability. 

The application cycle for the 2024 Artist-in-Residence Program is open until September 1, 2023.


The artist-in-residence program is a partnership between Breckenridge Creative Arts and the Saddle Rock Society.

Local Artists

We are growing a healthy arts community and recognize the importance of our local artists. Breck Create’s Open Door Program provides an opportunity for local artists to gain exposure to our community, sell their art and teach classes. The Arts District campus features three studios to rent to local artists at an affordable rate. Studios are located in the Randall Barn and lower level of the Ceramic Studio. Artists are selected based on the excellence of their work and public participation abilities. Our co-op artist program provides affordable space for local artists to work and thrive. In return, we ask that artists host open studio hours and workshops that engage the community.

The synergy of local, regional and national artists, who are instructing workshops in a variety of mediums, provides a catalyst for creative minds to connect and share their craft.
