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.
What do kids and water have in common? Find out in this wet and wild Workshop where splishing, splashing, science, and art coexist on the shores of Hallam Lake. Each day, participants will record their scientific discoveries using water-based paints and an array of techniques such as washes, drips, dyes, and resists. Celebrate the journey with friends and family at the end-of-the-week art show and all-camp performance.
Family Workshops are free monthly drop-in opportunities that provide children and adults a chance to explore the galleries and create works of art on their own. Families get to know one another better through engagement with new artists and ideas. Families are encouraged to communicate, reflect, and produce as artists together. Recommended for families with children ages three to ten years old, these workshops are offered one Saturday each month from 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Tuesday–Sunday, 10 AM–6 PM
