The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.

“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.

Will your piece perform a function, have form, or both?
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.

Teamwork is needed for this epic building workshop! Participants will learn how to construct a temporary structure to be used as a shelter and imaginative play from raw and found materials, such as cardboard and plywood. Family and friends are invited to complete the project by interacting with the space at the end of the week.
Artists are inspired by the world around them, from simple, everyday objects to complex ideas. Young artists will transform the textures from our worlds, including our favorite foods! We will create large-scale, abstract sculptures, beautiful enough to make you want to take a bite!
