    • Calling all fashionistas! This Workshop was made just for you. In this Workshop, you’ll create one-of-a-kind, wearable pieces of art. You’ll learn basic skills such as sewing, figure drawing, and how to create your own mood board. Inspired by the colors and shapes of Chris Ofili’s artworks, this Workshop will culminate in a fashion show on the museum’s roof-deck. Full, Waiting list available

    • Young participants will experiment with simple words and a variety of materials to create wearable artworks, colorful posters, and interactive sculptures that will pop up in unexpected places around Aspen, bringing art to the public while inviting playful participation.

    • Enter a secret society where historical objects and sculptures in Aspen come to life through storytelling. What do we want to remember about our past, present, and future? Students create affirmative statement pieces that will serve as a visual record of our experience of place, and maybe even affect our future.
