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.
Shape your future in this two-week pottery workshop designed for young clay artists interested in learning hand-building skills and making friendships that will last a lifetime. We’ll work individually and collaboratively to imagine and create a personal set of functional and decorative pieces. We’ll show off our wares to family and friends at a zany Mad Potters party at the end of the session.
