    • How far will you go to reach your dreams? Inspired by the exhibition The Blue of Distance, this Workshop will explore how the color blue is related to wishes and longing. Taking cues from the artists in the exhibition, we will use photography, drawing, sound, and sculpture to create a group student exhibition that expresses our aspirations.

    • Move beyond the canvas in this tactile, experimental Workshop. We will take inspiration from Rodney McMillian’s mixed media works to create sculptural paintings that defy what we expect a painting to look like. We will incorporate fabric and other nontraditional materials to make active, energetic artworks that will surprise even the artists themselves!

      FULL. Wait-list available

    • A sense of adventure is needed for this Workshop where students will embark on real and imagined adventures at Hallam Lake and the Aspen Art Museum. Inspired by the exhibition The Blue of Distance, participants will hike across the meadows, imagine floating up to reach the sky, and make artworks that explore our relationship with the color blue. Artworks in all media will emerge as visual records of these exciting journeys. Collaboration with Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES). (FULL, Waiting list available)
