    • Building is for the birds in this hands-on workshop where we will design and build take-home habitats out of natural and found materials for feathered friends. These unique sculptures will be both practical and beautiful homes for outdoor creatures!

    • Below the earth, Aspen’s rocks, minerals, soil, fossils, and crystals are waiting to be discovered! Daily observations and digs will provide the material for colorful charts, maps, and textiles that collectively tell a visual story of our local history. An installation of objects and artworks will be on display at the end of the session.

    • Become an eco-friendly designer! Students will be encouraged to dive into the future needs of fashion by creating a variety of sustainable fabrics, repurposing while developing the sewing skills necessary to create cool couture. We’ll wear and share our finished projects at a fashion show at the end of the week!

    • Abraham Cruzvillegas was born in Mexico City, in 1968, where he continues to live and work. Since 2007, he has created a body of sculptures and installations that investigate what he calls autoconstrucción (“self-construction”), working with found materials and assemblage in reference to everyday practices also found in urban landscapes. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Haus der Kunst, Munich, Museo Amparo, Puebla, Mexico, Museo de Arte de Lima, Peru, Tate Modern, London, Carré d’Art - musée d’art contemporain de Nîmes, France, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, and Kunsthaus Zürich.
