Exploration Beyond Art Hike

Inspiration from Nature

Engaging in neurographic art amidst the serene beauty of Colorado National Monument (CNM) offers a perfect blend of creativity and the great outdoors. Neurographic art, known for its meditative and therapeutic qualities, allows individuals to express their emotions through unique and flowing patterns. This artistic technique not only stimulates creativity but also promotes relaxation and mental well-being. Combine this with the fresh air and stunning landscapes of CNM, and you have a rejuvenating experience awaiting you.

Nothing is needed but an open mind, you may bring your own sketchbook if you would like, but materials will be provided.

Join Denise Wright, a retired d51 school Art teacher, living in Grand Junction now for 25+ years, and who loves this beautiful land we have here in western Colorado and is excited to share that joy with kids and adults alike.

Class notes:

  • This class is for teenagers and adults only please.
  • Bring hiking shoes, layers, water and sunscreen and a snack if needed.
  • Meet in front of the Saddlehorn Visitor Center, will walk together to Book Cliff Shelter area.
  • Park passes required for entry, as always please carpool when possible.
