Bring Out Your Creative Side at Art Studios and Museums in Casper

Fall is the perfect season to amp up your creativity. Whether you're interested in making or viewing art, you'll find plenty of opportunities to indulge your creative side at these spots near our apartments in Casper:

Sanctuary Pottery Studio

Few things are quite as satisfying as shaping your own art piece on the clay wheel. This lovely little spot is open to beginners and advanced students alike. Sanctuary is located on the converted grounds of the old Roosevelt High School, with a calendar that includes structured classes and open practice hours. The current slate of open classes focuses on wheel throwing, with an additional opportunity to practice raw clay decorating.

Artisan Alley

With its full calendar of events, this local business is a haven for creativity. Artisan Alley hosts a variety of classes for a variety of skill levels. Seasonal project events allow you to take home creative keepsakes to decorate your home. Offerings include guided painting classes, terrarium building experiences, mandala-building experiences, and more. If you prefer to create at your own pace, you can try out the open-studio time, which will provide you with all the instructions and materials you need to make your own D.I.Y. projects. 

Nicolaysen Art Museum

This glorious destination is the perfect spot to discover art in Casper and immerse yourself in the contemporary arts scene. The museum features rotating exhibits as well as a notable permanent collection. Nicolaysen's open, light-filled, inviting spaces invite contemplation and thoughtful observation. Whether you're interested in wall paintings, three-dimensional sculpture or photography, you'll find something to appreciate at Nicolaysen.

If you're in the mood for a different type of museum experience, consider the Geological Museum in Casper.
