The AAM is thrilled to host in-person 2021 Summer Workshops and collaborate with community partners such as Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, Aspen Music Festival and School, and VOICES. We will be celebrating the mountains and natural world around us through multiple art disciplines including visual arts, music, film, performance, and so much more!

Due to restrictive numbers and so that everything can be delivered in a safe way, there will be a random selection process for workshops with both members and general applicants. We are holding half of the spots per workshop for our members.
