EDUCATION

At the Art Base, artists of all ages and abilities come together to engage their creativity, hone their technical skills, learn new processes and share in the alchemy of making art. The Art Base provides a vibrant schedule of art classes for adults and youth (both in school and outside of the classroom). We are always growing our partner and outreach programs and currently strive to make art accessible to the at-risk and under-served, including the developmentally disabled, teen parents and youth in addiction recovery.

YOUTH

Afterschool Art Clubs teach students the elements of visual art such as, line, shape, form, space, texture, value, color, perspective, and composition. Students create several original pieces of artwork including drawings, paintings and/or sculptures and in addition to learning artistic technique, students engage their imaginations.

Using a variety of different art materials, children will create sculptures, paintings, drawings, and mixed media artwork based on a monthly theme! The instructor will meet the participants at the Basalt Elementary School flagpole immediately following school and pick up will be at the Art Base. Parents are welcome to drop off their child, and the Aspen Community School and Aspen Country Day School’s buses both drop off very near the Art Base.
