Creative Arts Center in La Veta Colorado

Unveiling the Estelle Center for Creative Arts: Igniting Passion and Fostering Creativity

Wouldn't it be great if there was a place where you could go to explore your creativity? A place that nurtures your creative journey and connects you with like-minded people who can support and collaborate with you? And wouldn’t it be even better if that place was in a delightful, artsy small town with a slower pace and friendly faces? If that town were nestled in a picturesque valley surrounded by mountain wilderness, it would be even more amazing.
Yes, it would. That's why Jennifer Peterson founded the Estelle Center.

Irene–who is leading a quilting retreat at the Estelle Center in April–reinvented herself at 65. Now, at 73, she is enjoying more fun and success than ever before. Her story is inspiring because of the age at which she took a leap, but also because she is an artist making a living from her art.
