Tapping Into Your Creative Edge, An Aspen Business Connect Event

It was an incredible Aspen Business Connect launch at The Snowmass Collective celebrating two teen artists who have been Tapping Into their Creative Edge for quite some time now in the Aspen High School art room with Stephanie Nixon and Diane Heath as their trusted teachers, and guides.

Scholastic Art & Writing Awards 2020

Scholastic Honorable Mention Award Winner Jake Bozza, and 4 Time Scholastic Gold Key and American Vision Award Winner Axel Livingston were the featured artists of the evening, with their friend DJ Olivia Regen spinning great tunes to add to the atmosphere.

The Aspen High School Visual Arts Department submitted 145 works of art to the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition. There were 6,000 total entries for the state of Colorado including 2,200 students. From these submissions, students from Aspen High School won a total of 18 awards, including two students nominated for the National American Visions Award. There were only 5 students nominated in the state, and two of them are from Aspen.

The Gold Key Award winners and American Vision winner will go on to the National Scholastic competition, adjudicated on March 16th. National Gold Award winners will have their work on display at Parsons – The New School. An award ceremony will be held at Carnegie Hall in New York City in June.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
