Who We Are

As one of the newest art resources in Boulder County, East Side Art Institute is a non-profit organization that is raising funds to build a fully-equipped facility for art education, research, and exhibition. These resources and a community of established and budding artists who work in this facility will inspire and enrich the lives of artists and art enthusiasts throughout Boulder County.


To provide extraordinary art-based education, experiences, and opportunities that encourage self-expression and inspire the community through creative exploration.

Our Vision

East Side Art Institute will be a focal point for the practice of creative arts in Boulder County, where artists, educators, administrators, business leaders, and philanthropists work together in a supportive community to provide unique opportunities and inspiration for people of all ages and abilities to discover and pursue their passion for creative expression.

What We Do

Foster Art in the Community
The making of art takes artists into the moment where they are held in perfect awareness, providing joy and purpose to sustain them in their daily lives. We will provide the resources and educational opportunities that allow that magic to happen.

Create Opportunity
Our facilities and programs will encompass many art forms. Many of these art forms require equipment and space that is not available to aspiring artists, or established artists who want to branch out into other art forms or combine media.

Fill a Community Need
Our programs and classes will answer the demand that exists in Boulder County for access to facilities and instruction where interest in these arts can be explored.
