Summer Workshops

Summer Workshops 2020

Every Monday from July 6 to August 17, we will post a new instructional video on a project to create for the week. If you have watched every video at the end of the seven weeks, you will have one HUGE art project to showcase! Please see below for more details and the opportunity to sign up for online sessions if you are a Roaring Fork Valley resident!


Puppet Productions with Ryan Prince (Elementary—Middle School)
Join AAM Educator Ryan as he leads an expedition into the realm of puppets. We travel through the fairytale world of heroes, villains, beasts, and far-off lands that you create over the seven-week workshop. Every week, we will learn a different puppet and scene-making technique. Sock puppets to marionettes, hacked stuffed animals to crankys, you’ll find that almost anything can be activated to tell a story. (Great for K–8th grade students.)

Visual Journals with Vanessa Porras (Middle School—High School)
Are you interested in learning about various forms of printmaking, poetry writing, and bookmaking? Join AAM Educator Vanessa as she instructs on how to create lithography prints, write about yourself as your own hero, and turn your artwork into books! These seven-week sessions will end with a poetry slam and reading. (Great for 5th–12th grade students.)

Digital Media with Elisabeth Strunk (Middle School—High School)
AAM Educator Elisabeth will be teaching all things digital media—photography, animation, videography, and more! Join her every Monday of the summer to develop and grow your digital artmaking skills. By the end of the summer, you will have a video to share with family, friends, and the community! (Great for 5th–12th grade students.)
