Teaching Artists

All Teaching Artists sessions are now full.

Please contact Sabrina Piersol at to join the waitlist.

We are pleased to offer Teaching Artists, a brand-new initiative that establishes a dialogue between artists and educators in the Roaring Fork Valley. This program invites artists wanting to expand their practice through an educational framework and connects them with artists and educators with teaching experience. Teaching Artists will offer real education experience through curriculum development, analysis, skill-sharing, and critical discussion surrounding arts education. Participants will be offered paid opportunities to design and implement curriculum together with the Aspen Art Museum for our Drop-In Art School weekly workshops. In addition to the valuable education experience, there will also be opportunities to connect and network with local arts organizations.

Artists, art educators, classroom teachers, and the education-curious are welcome to apply. Sessions start November 2, 2023, and will occur every other Thursday from 6–8 PM at the Education Workshop in the Aspen Art Museum, unless otherwise noted.

Participants are encouraged to attend at least 80% of the events in the series. Dinner and transportation reimbursement will be provided.
