Aspen Education Foundation joined forces with Anderson Ranch Arts Center in the 2024 school year to enhance art education within Aspen School District, expanding opportunities for students across all educational levels. This partnership introduced diverse programming including youth mentorship, studio art experiences, field trips, and workshops throughout 2024. These initiatives are crafted to align with the district’s IB curriculum, fostering creativity and enriching educational experiences from elementary through high school. Highlights included hands-on workshops integrating art with subjects like Chemistry, tailored field trips for elementary students, and a new mentorship program at the high school level. This collaboration aimed to make Anderson Ranch’s resources more accessible to Aspen’s youth, nurturing their artistic potential and community engagement. We are thrilled to have a new local partnership with Anderson Ranch and can’t wait to continue bringing these and other art programs to Aspen students in the coming school year.
