Give your children the gift of being creative, learning through art, and having fun with friends this festive season. We’re partnering with The Red Brick Center for the Arts, a community arts center and gallery in Aspen, to bring children’s art experiences that celebrate the holiday season at the Hotel Jerome. In each session, kids will explore an artistic theme through different mediums such as collage, painting, sculpture, and more to create holiday-inspired art with Arts Educator Natalie Squillante. All crafts created will be available to take home at the end of each workshop.
