PAI Programs


We're excited to roll out Kaleidoscope, a grant program funded by The Community Foundation Serving Southwest Colorado and designed to bring art to local underserved participants from ages 12 to 120!

We have an awesome lineup of local teaching artists that will help participants explore different creative techniques. And thanks to the generosity of these teachers donating their time, and the grant-funded materials, we're able to offer these workshops at no charge, plus provide all supplies.


PSAC Member Benefit
While Kaleidoscope is designed for underserved students and seniors in our community, when space allows, we will add two spots in each workshop for PSAC members.  Detailed descriptions are below. 


If you are a PSAC member and you would like to join one of the workshops, email the workshop

These spots are based on availability and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.



PAI is proud to support and cultivate the local arts, starting with Pagosa's youth. Each year, PAI canvasses a scholarship fund to provide to a Pagosa Springs High School senior pursuing the arts.


To date, we have raised over $10,000 in scholarship funds thanks to the generosity of local businesses, PAI members, and our very own council members.

You can contribute to the PAI Scholarship fund by donating or by participating in our PAI workshops and fundraising events.
