Bijou St., 80903.  All classes include 9 sessions and are taught by award winning local artist Brett Andrus.  Now in its seventh year, the ModboCo School of Art offers classes for most ages and skill levels.  The ModboCo’s mission is to provide our students with an access point to art making, as well as a safe place to fail. We aim to celebrate our students’ growth, challenge them, and ensure quality in our teaching. At the end of the day, we want to help shape the cultural identity of our community, to create with integrity, to open possibilities, and to have fun in the process.  What are you waiting for?
