Creative Arts at Sunrise Ranch: Concerts, Dancing, Drumming, Art

Learn the Arts at Sunrise Ranch every Monday & Thursday evening

Sunrise Ranch is proud to announce our Fine Arts Program that frees the spirit and lifts the soul. “Expanding Vision Through Creative Expression” teaches beginners and experts alike the process and techniques for creating expressive works of art. With a newly renovated building created as an art studio for this program, Sunrise Ranch has decreed “Studio A” as a home for which “the arts” can be birthed in a sacred space. Classes are now being held every Monday and Thursday, from 7-9:30 p.m. These classes are led by Bob Ewing, Sunrise Artist-in-Residence. The maximum number of students that Studio A can hold is 12, so reserve your spot as soon as possible to guarantee participation.

More detailed, day-long workshops will resume soon on Saturdays as the weather improves. This series of classes and instructional sessions will be diverse and artistically compelling, while being held in the midst of the inspiration and beauty that is Sunrise Ranch. Class topics will include drawing, watercolor, acrylic and oil painting, art history (history, culture, vision and spirit), theory, composition, design, color, dynamic symmetry and poetic process. Instructional sessions could expand to include sculpture, ceramics, photography, jewelry-making and other crafts.

We invite you to expand your artistic horizons. Class fees are $25 per person per session and we ask that you bring your own paint and art supplies. If you do not have supplies, Sunrise will provide materials for an additional $10, making the class fee $35. For further information and if you have questions, please contact Bob Ewing (970) 443-4402. You can also e-mail Bob Ewing at
