OUR COMMUNITY LIFE
Our culture is what defines us. We recognize that wellbeing demands the exercise of our minds, bodies, spirits, and engagement – with art, music, knowledge, nature, and each other.
Picasso once said, “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” At The Academy, there are weekly art classes taught by wonderful local artists to help our residents do just that!
Love the outdoors? So do we! In any given week, opportunities abound for hiking Boulder’s open spaces, Nordic walking or just plain strolling The Academy’s beautiful neighborhood near Chautauqua.
A music lover? Last year we hosted over one hundred musical events here at The Academy and scheduled and transported our residents to many more professional performances in Boulder and Denver.
Our Historic Chapel Hall serves as the venue for a host of musical performances and cultural presentations. With a capacity of 150 persons, it is also the space in which we hold some of our larger celebrations and social events.
