Anderson Ranch Arts Center has a long tradition of providing transformative educational experiences in the visual arts. We bring together an outstanding faculty of emerging and renowned artists and professional educators from all over the US and abroad. Instruction covers a broad spectrum of media including: ceramics, digital media and photography, furniture design and woodworking, painting and drawing, printmaking, sculpture and critical studies. A workshop at Anderson Ranch can truly be a life-changing experience.
The Ranch encourages rigorous inquiry and purposeful risk-taking. We value diversity of artistic expression and provide meaningful experiences for all our participants. All of this is accomplished on five acre campus nestled in the Rocky Mountains, serene and inspiring locale with access to the vibrant cultural and outdoor lifestyle of the Aspen/Snowmass Village area.
The Summer Workshops program is our most robust. Every summer from June through September, we offer more than 145 workshops for novices to professional artists, children to adults, bringing more than 1,300 artists of all levels and ages here for the opportunity to uncover, develop and stretch their creative spirits.
Field workshops are learning adventures for artists, amateurs, and others who want to explore a new culture while advancing their craft and creating a new body of personal work. Destination workshops are led by renowned artists who know the area, are experienced teachers and generous mentors. These workshops are life-enhancing experiences and, as with any adventure, the journey is the destination.
