Dan Fogelberg was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1948, and moved to Boulder in 1956. He received his BFA and MFA degrees from the University of Colorado, majoring in watermedia painting. Dan was the recipient of the Talent and Creativity Scholarship as an undergraduate and the American Watercolor Society Scholarship as a graduate student.

For 28 years, Dan taught art at Longmont High School in Longmont, Colorado, where his students have won numerous state and national art awards. At least seven of his former students are art teachers themselves. Dan has written many articles for art education publications, and has been a presenter at both the Colorado and National Art Education Association Conferences. In 1993, Dan was honored as the Colorado Art Educator of the Year.

Since 1973, Dan has continued to exhibit his artwork, with shows ranging from "Colorado Clay" at the Foothills Art Center to the "Art of Crafts" at the Denver Art Museum. In 2000, he had a solo show of both paintings and ceramics at the Mariani Gallery of the University of Northern Colorado. His work is in numerous private and corporate collections, including those of the Digital Equipment Corporation, The Denver Post and Kaiser Permanente.

In 2003, Dan retired from teaching to pursue a full time career in the studio.
