Summer Workshops

Stay tuned for 2020 Summer Workshop dates and information!

Summer Workshops at the Aspen Art Museum use art on view as a starting point for unique, creative art-making opportunities for a wide range of ages and interests.

Professional artists and educators guide participants through concept and material exploration. Each Workshop develops an understanding of contemporary art through fun hands-on projects, gallery explorations, and off-site excursions that culminate in a student exhibition, performance, or party. Small class sizes encourage making friends and developing individual expression, and each week culminates with a party celebrating the students’ final performance or exhibition.

In order to be confirmed for a Workshop, an Emergency Contact and Release form must be completed and signed. Payment covers Workshop costs and materials; participants need to bring any snacks and lunch to the Workshop.

Waiting List

There is no charge to be placed on a waiting list for a Workshop that has reached maximum capacity. If a space becomes available, the AAM Education Coordinator will contact the first individual on the waiting list in the order of their application and give twenty-four hours for them to officially register before moving on to the next person on the list.

Cancellation Policy

Thirty days prior written notice is required to receive a refund on Workshop registration costs. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made within thirty days of the start of the Workshop. Please note that tuition includes a $50 registration fee that is nonrefundable. If the AAM is required to cancel the Workshop, the Education Coordinator will contact each participant individually and fully refund the registration cost or reallocate the enrollment to another Workshop. Workshop registrations cannot be transferred to another person.
