How to Be More Creative

We asked three Denver-based artists their advice for how people can be more creative. Check out their tips and then visit the Paint Studio (open seven days a week) to experiment with paint or see a weekend artist demonstration. We also invite you to participate in one of our Drop-In Drawing or Drop-In Writing Programs, or bring the family for fun artmaking activities. Happy creating!
