For Art Base members, these invite-only events present a unique opportunity to meet the artists in an intimate setting and have a glimpse into their creative mind. Join us as we learn about each artists’ art-making techniques and inspirations. We encourage guests to and ask questions about the artists’ work and process.

Art talks are appropriate for the whole family. The Colorado Creative industries explain that visual and verbal literacy are developed through active experiences with the visual arts that include questioning and dialogue, what it often called “Art Talk.”

Past art talk topics have included: printmaking demonstrations, gallery Q&As, healing with color, the business of art, women in art, and art and education.
