    • This monthlong program for kids at the K–4 grade level is held weekly at the Aspen Art Museum. Taking place after school most Wednesdays from 2:30–4 p.m., these workshops recognize the value of exposing children to the arts at an early age and use the artist’s process as an educational tool. Museum educators and teaching artists lead classes that include activities in the gallery and take-home projects.

    • Playing off the museum’s series “I Don’t Get It,” this four-part workshop invites participants to confront what they wish they knew about contemporary art, but were afraid to ask. Led by AAM Educator Katie Bannon and Learning Director Michelle Dezember, these workshops meet every Wednesday evening in January with time in both the galleries and the workshop.
