    • A preference for pattern is needed in this workshop! We’ll mix, match, print, and patch to create a visual explosion of two- and three-dimensional artworks that can be worn or displayed. The workshop will conclude with a celebration of our creations for family and friends.

    • Design and build for a better world in this collaborative project-based workshop with a special focus on fort and furniture design. We’ll work to create both an educational tool and comfy space for local preschool clients, using colorful textiles, soft fabrics, and forms. Teens will unveil their design solutions at an art show for friends and family at the end of the week.

    • Hallam Lake is the perfect location to reflect on our personal and collective rituals. Young Darwins will observe and record daily experiences in the form of collecting, writing, photographing, and mapping, creating a diverse visual diary of how we connect to ourselves and the world.

    • The AAM’s 2017–18 Gabriela and Ramiro Garza Distinguished Artist in Residence, Cheryl Donegan, is a pioneering figure in contemporary conceptual art. For the past two decades, her multidisciplinary practice has investigated the notion of surface—of the canvas, screen, fabric, or her own body. As part of her residency and solo exhibition, Donegan will premiere a new fashion line in a presentation at the museum. Directed and choreographed in collaboration with artist Alix Pearlstein, this free show features models from the Roaring Fork Valley wearing couture pieces.

    • Nikolai and Simon Haas were born in Austin, Texas, in 1984, and currently live and work in Los Angeles. Their collaborative projects exist at the intersection of art and design, often incorporating nature, fantasy, psychedelia, and humor. Their work has been included in exhibitions including the Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial, the San Jose Museum of Art, Boesky West, and is the subject of an upcoming survey at the Bass Museum of Art.
