Plein-Air Rafting Trip

Join CCA and the Colorado National Monument Association for a unique plein-air painting experience at this year’s Monuments and Canyons Plein-Air Invitational!

Artists will travel 25 miles through Ruby and Horsethief Canyons. Marvel at the area’s serenity, while meandering through dramatic canyons cut deep in the heart of the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. Immerse yourself in beauty as ever-changing light illuminates golden cottonwood galleries and glowing red sandstone walls. Allow CCA’s expert guides to share their deep knowledge of the diverse desert landscape and human history of the area, all while enjoying delicious, freshly prepared meals, a comfortable campsite, and unhindered night skies.
