Fort Collins, Colorado is a great little city with a solid arts scene, incredible dining, and myriad outdoor activity opportunities. We can offer you a bike to borrow and there are several hiking trails and bike paths within 3 miles of Kestrel Fields Studio. We are always glad to offer recommendations for the things we love about our hometown.
Kestrel Fields Studio & Art Residency is located in NW Fort Collins, in a quiet, residential neighborhood. The studio is adjacent to Kestrel Fields Natural Area, where you can take breaks from all that focus for fresh air, beauty, and wildlife.
The studio is on the 2nd floor of a carriage house (garage) and residents will need to be able to climb 17 stairs to access the studio. We are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible at this time.
We live on-site and are here to help settle you in or offer an extra hand. With a background in art and counseling, we can provide conversation or advice, field trips to art-y places in town, critique and ideas, and otherwise leave you alone to work.
Parking is easy and free, with an off-street parking spot just for you, making it easy to load/unload. Come and go from the property as you please.
If you prefer to navigate Fort Collins without a car, we are an easy bus or bike ride into town, about 3.5 (flat) miles away. The bus stop is directly outside and provides free transportation to town every hour (6am-6pm).
