    • Connect the dots between people, places, and history in this mixed-media workshop! Inspired by the work of Rashid Johnson and his interest in our changing relationship to places, we will make maps of our homes and the places we love through the use of many different materials.


    • How do you want to present yourself to the world? Participants will be encouraged to observe current trends and produce individual looks. We will repurpose fabrics 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!


    • Shapes, colors, and collages—oh my! Let’s create together in this 2-D workshop through the use of colors, scribbling, and dripping. Based on the work of Etel Adnan, we will use the artist’s process to create colorful landscapes!

    • Taking inspiration from the Lebanese artist and poet, Etel Adnan, artists in this painting workshop will use brushstrokes to bring memories to life. Recollections of special places, both real and imagined, will appear as ink moves across paper, colors shape canvas, and words and images join together in unique folding books.


    • New York, London, Japan, Aspen! Expand your skills, style, and friendships in this advanced workshop for teens. Students will be given the tools and materials needed to conceive and create haute-couture fashion, while stretching teen fashion trends found around the globe with classical garment construction. These unique fashions will be presented to friends and family at an end-of-week Fashion Show.


    • Art and writing go hand-in-hand in this “wordshop,” inspired by the mixed-media artwork of Rashid Johnson. Combine poetry with paint to create new and inspirational works of art that capture the spirit of your favorite vacation destinations!

    • Have you ever wondered what lies beyond the horizon? Or what the horizon looks like from an ant’s or a bird’s point of view? Participants go beyond traditional landscapes in this mixed-media workshop by looking at Aspen through new and exciting perspectives. We will create a world where big paper shapes and fabric collages come to life in a magical realm beyond where the earth meets the sky.
