    • Design is all around us! From words on signs to spaces we interact with, a designer can turn an idea into a work of art. Taking inspiration from the works of Margaret Kilgallen and Oscar Tuazon, join us as we learn about making layouts, visual design, and typography in order to make our own zine!


    • Join former Ute tribal chairman Roland McCook for an evening discussing the relationship between indigenous peoples and animals of Western Colorado. The conversation will tie to the work of Gabriel Rico, whose exhibition at the AAM juxtaposes natural and imagined life.

    • Collections come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. Naturalists collect and sort things they find into similar groupings to better understand the world around them. Join us at Hallam Lake as we observe, gather, and classify the plants and animals we find, providing inspiration for your own creative collections.

    • Lights, camera, action! Put your director hat on and come join us for a fun-filled week of directing, designing, and producing your own stop-motion animation film. The week will end with a special screening for family and friends.


    • “If you want it to be art, it could be.” Let’s get to work in a hands-on workshop inspired by this quote from artist Oscar Tuazon. We’ll explore the relationships between form and function and use and uselessness by designing and building three-dimensional items out of everyday objects. Will your piece perform a function, have form, or both?
