We started the week with the launch of our summer classes and camps, and have we got a group of happy kids and parents. We design all of our programs and classes so that kids learn to discover, explore and imagine in their own unique ways, experimenting with a variety of art materials and methods, musical instruments and dance moves. This encourages the development of creative thinking and problem solving skills while having one of the best times available in the valley.

Many of you are still planning the summer for yourself and your kids, and I’d like to make part of that a little easier. We still have room in many of our classes and camps, and I’d like to give you the opportunity to check them out before committing. Next week, I invite your child to drop in to any of the following classes for the day at no cost to you. Take a look at what’s available at the Art Center and the Annex:

Several of your favorite Art Center artists will be at our first-time booth June 19, 20 and 21. New works and returning favorites will be waiting for your artistic eye. Then head toward the main stage at 10 a.m. Sunday, June 21, and see our talented dancers strut their stuff. A great time will be had by all.


We’re calling all amateur, student and professional artists for our next exhibit, which is all about the dogs. All mediums from visual, sculptural and sensory art will be considered as we celebrate that loyal, steadfast and hilarious hound. Drop off your original artwork at the Center for the Arts from June 29 through July 6. A $35 gallery fee is due upon artwork acceptance. Meet the artists and their leashed friends at the reception from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on July 10. The exhibit will show from July 10 through Aug. 17.


Season Five of our annual Summer of Music begins June 24 with international jazz sensation, the Afro-Cuban Jazz Project. These guys are legends in the world of jazz, and we couldn’t be happier that they are starting us off right. Opening for them will be the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Summer Camp. See you there at 6:30 p.m. at Two Rivers Park.


We look forward to seeing you throughout the summer as we play together, work together and enjoy everything that renews and restores.
