    • If you could share your thoughts with the world, what would you say? In response to the exhibition, The Revolution Will Not Be Gray, students will explore the history of printmaking. Students will learn how to transform an idea of their passionate choice into printed artworks that can be shared and reproduced with friends, family, or community members.

    • Turn your ideas into moving actions! In this playful Workshop, students will develop a storyline with a setting and characters, draw a storyboard, and use a digital camera to animate their own film. After one week of production, a special screening will be held for family and friends in the Education Workshop. Students are asked to bring a digital camera or tablet.

    • Gabriel Orozco was born in 1962 in Jalapa, Mexico, and currently lives and works between New York, Paris, and Mexico City. The artist is internationally renowned for concept-based work across various media, and his exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum explores the poetry of chance encounters while blurring the boundary between art and the everyday. Among numerous solo exhibitions, a recent retrospective of his work took place beginning at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and traveling to Kunstmuseum Basel, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and Tate Modern, London. He is the recipient of the 2016 Aspen Award for Art.
