Watch Video

We are growing a healthy arts community and recognize the importance of our local artists. Breck Create offers a number of opportunities for local artists to teach, learn, work and find a creative community in which to thrive. 

Breck Create offers professional development for artists through classes, workshops and meetups. Classes and workshops help creatives learn skills and frameworks needed to be entrepreneurs. Meetups offer networking opportunities to assist artists in making connections and gaining career advice from their fellows.

ART Instructors + Studio Technicians

As class enrollment grows, Breck Create looks forward to expanding our catalog of educational offerings. We welcome class and workshop proposals from experienced artists, craftspeople, and designers, and prefer applicants with teaching experience and/or a degree in Fine Arts or Arts Education. Artists working in all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Studio Technicians are responsible for leading Ceramics Open Studios. Studio Techs are not instructors but are available to answer general questions and orient new participants. Studio Techs must commit to facilitating one Open Studio per week.

Our application is rolling and we will contact you if your application is successful. We are not able to respond to individual inquiries. If you are interested in becoming an Instructor or Studio Tech, please fill out the application below.

Please note that we schedule classes 6-12 months in advance. Thank you for your interest.

local artist Open Door Program

Breck Create’s Open Door Program provides affordable space for local artists to work and thrive. In return, we ask that artists engage the community through open studio hours and workshops. Artists are selected based on the excellence of their work and public participation abilities. 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.

The Arts District campus features three studio spaces to rent to local artists: one in the Randall Barn and two on the lower level of the Ceramics Studio.
