Summer Facilitated Studio Practice: Metal and Miscellaneous
Jun 19 - 23, 2023
9AM - 5PM
Anderson Ranch’s Facilitated Studio Practice approach provides artists the opportunity to work on independent projects while receiving regular one-on-one mentoring and critique sessions with Studio Coordinator, Teddy Andriese. Each participant receives an assigned workspace, orientation, and access to equipment, with technical guidance in the Ranch’s state-of-the-art facilities.
Demos are provided for participants interested in incorporating metal, wood, or basic mold making techniques into their practice. This program allows local artists the experience enjoyed by national and international artists who travel to Snowmass Village from all over the world. Participants may expand their practices, take artistic risks, try new media, or complete works for exhibition. Participants are encouraged to bring unique materials or found objects to incorporate into their artistic processes.
Applicants must submit a concise project proposal to Sculpture Studio Coordinator Teddy Andriese before applying. A limited number of participants will be accepted. To submit or discuss proposals, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 970.924.5077

Express your creativity and vision by exploring the limitless art of sculpture. At Anderson Ranch, our sculpture program offers a vibrant spectrum of workshops that reflect a variety of studio practices. At the confluence of tradition and technology, these programs are material and technique-rich, ranging from classical metal fabrication to experimental digital production.
Students work in communal and interactive studios designed for all levels of experience, supporting traditional and nontraditional methods. The sculpture studios are fully equipped with advanced machinery and offer additional outdoor covered workspace.
Our renowned sculpture faculty work closely with students through critical discussions, material demonstrations and individual assistance. Instructors encourage exploration and experimentation, emphasizing process and idea development. We complement this with a focus on process and sound construction. You leave with far more than finished pieces—you walk away with the tools and inspiration required to elevate your studio practice.
