Creativity in Action

Introducing Colorado Art Lab by Anya & Joe McManis

Please accept this invitation into our creative space. Colorado Art Lab is a place where we want to share our art with you and encourage you to get creative yourself. Whether you stop by for a studio visit to check out our art, or join us for a class, we hope you’ll leave excited  and inspired about art. 


Time to get creative. All classes are great for beginners and more advanced painters alike. Anya will guide you along step-by-step sharing her tips and tricks. We hope to see you soon in a class.


Anya’s work is a celebration of the beauty and complexity of our world, an invitation to look beyond the surface and engage with the deeper, more subtle aspects of the human experience. 


Joe paints with acrylic on canvas, primarily with a palette knife applying thick layers of paint in vibrant colors. His paintings are abstract depictions of Rocky Mountain wildlife.
