Nestled in the heart of Lafayette Colorado, Kaleidoscope welcomes artists of all abilities to experience the joy of creativity. Like a coworking space gives people a chance to get out of their home offices, Kaleidoscope is designed for artists to connect. Studios are offered on a sliding scale basis for drop in or regular use. Artists will display their work, collaborate with each other, and render the entire property a dynamic, ever-changing canvas.
The demands and challenges of our world call for more art, love, creativity and connection. Kaleidoscope is a space for all of that. It also invites reflection, meditation and the opportunity to dream. As a non-profit, Kaleidoscope takes proceeds above its overhead and re-invests into its mission: transmitting art and love into the world and designating a place for people to gather and be CREATIVE.
Not long after establishing my studio on the front of the property where Kaleidoscope is being built, I discovered the immense gratification and healing of creative play. That is: artistic projects undertaken simply for the joy they provide. Now, I am expanding this opportunity to other artists -- as both a gift to the community, and a beacon of light for the world.
Like the images seen through its namesake, Kaleidoscope will always be shifting, evolving, and shining.
