Monthly drop-in Family Workshops at the AAM are designed to provide children and adults free opportunities to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together.
This after-school program for kids in Grades K–4 is held most Wednesdays during the school year at the AAM. Museum educators lead classes that include activities in the gallery and take-home projects.
Limited class size; prior registration strongly encouraged.
Presented in collaboration with the Aspen Center for Physics, this lecture provides an opportunity to view the work of Gabriel Orozco through the lens of astronomy and cosmology. Steinn Sigurdsson, Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at Pennsylvania State University and Aspen Center for Physics Trustee, will discuss connections between forms found in Orozco’s exhibition, astronomy, and particle physics.
Creating a space for critical feedback and community, local artists are invited to apply on a first come, first serve basis for this Crit Session. Led by Solveig Øvstebø, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Renaissance Society in Chicago, the sessions provide an intimate, constructive environment for artists.
This new program for infants and their caregivers explores fun ways to interact through art. These regularly offered workshops integrate art making and appreciation into children’s lives. The Levels 0–2 and 3–5 Years are offered free of charge on a first come, first serve basis.
Since 2005, the Aspen Art Museum
and the Aspen Skiing Company have collaborated to bring contemporary art to audiences in unexpected places. Each year, an artist is commissioned to produce artworks that are used on lift tickets for the winter season.
Create Your Own Lift Ticket workshops are offered throughout the season for kids and families to respond to these designs by creating a personal lift ticket with the help of AAM educators.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
General operating support is provided by Colorado Creative Industries. CCI and its activities are made possible through an annual appropriation from the Colorado General Assembly and federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
