    • For those who are ready to jump right in, this Workshop will immerse you fully into the playful side of creativity. Through spirited visits to artworks on view at the AAM and collaborative, hands-on activities, we’ll work up the momentum to create a public artwork to share with friends and families—and make new friends along the way!

    • What would you paint if you knew the whole world would see it? Inspired by the ten motivational instructions given by Peter Fischli and David Weiss in the public artwork How to Work Better, kids will create larger than life works outside. We will explore good guidelines for having fun together and how to bring out our inner artists!

    • Ferris Bueller has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris’s trail is high school principal Rooney, determined to catch him in the act.

      Family Workshop

      Family Workshops are free monthly drop-in opportunities that provide children and adults a chance to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Families get to know one another better through engagement with new artists and ideas. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together.

    • From July 11–15, Tibetan Buddhist monks from Drepung Loseling Monastery will construct a temporary mandala sand painting on Level 3 of the Aspen Art Museum as part of their annual visit to Aspen. Visitors are invited to watch the creation of this temporal artwork during regular museum hours. Please join us for the Opening Ceremony, which is free and open to the public.
