Family Programs at the Aspen Art Museum encourage children and adult teams to look, share, and create together. Families with children of all ages are welcome to explore the museum’s current exhibitions and participate in hands-on art projects.
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 10:00 AM–12:00 PM. Check the Calendar for upcoming sessions.
Behind the Book is a new series that provides access to the experiences of illustrators and authors in publishing through presentations and hands-on activities.
All sessions take place at the Aspen Art Museum (637 E. Hyman Avenue), unless otherwise noted.
