Concept

Intriguing inchworms, fascinating fireflies, and fluttering butterflies are just a few of the colorful creatures that we will create in this weeklong workshop. As we learn about their environment and characteristics, we discover many beautiful aspects of these unique critters. We will craft birds, bugs and animals, big and small, using various media. Clay, papier mâché, watercolor and tempera paint, glue, glitter, beads, feathers, yarn and some found objects are just some of the items that will be used to create our one of a kind works of art. Books and songs that celebrate our fury, fuzzy and fantastical friends will be shared to make this playful and productive workshop something that children will treasure for a long time to come.

Workshop Details

Lodging & Meals

Anderson Ranch closely follows guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Colorado and the Pitkin County Health Department. In order to operate safely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson Ranch has made significant modifications to our housing and meal offerings.

Summer 2022 workshop participants ages 13 and up will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination. Studio program participants are required to show proof that they have received the complete Covid-19 vaccine (i.e., two weeks have passed after receiving the second dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer MRNA vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine). Additionally, if six months have passed since completing the Moderna or Pfizer series or two months have passed since receiving the J & J vaccine, then a booster is also required. Ideally the booster would have been administered at least two weeks prior to coming to Anderson Ranch.

We have established a Business Safety Plan with added layers of precaution that prioritizes the health and safety of our staff, students, faculty and guests while continuing to provide you with the Anderson Ranch experience that you know and enjoy.

Housing is limited and includes shared and private lodging options. Reservations will be managed on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you reserve housing, the better your chance of receiving your preferred option. Please note: Workshop costs do not include accommodations.
