Weekend Artist Demonstrations

3-D Studio—Hamilton Building, Level 1

Beginning October 7, meet local creatives and watch demonstrations every weekend in the 3-D Studio.

Demonstrations will take place from noon to 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Artmaking & Demonstrations


Try these artmaking activities every day the museum is open.

  • Purely Paper: Use your design thinking skills to build an abstract sculpture.
  • Wound in Wire: Draw inspiration from the exhibition Stampede: Animals in Art to create your own animal.
  • Become a Part of the Art: Work together with family and friends to contribute to a collaborative sculpture designed by local artist Pam Fortner


On weekends, connect with Denver's creative community at artist demonstrations. Every weekend is a new chance to see an artist at work on three-dimensional art, from sculpture to 3-D printing to drawings that turn 3-D right before your eyes! Our series will kick off on October 7-8 with Denver artist Jennifer Ghormley, who worked closely with the DAM in the design of the 3-D Studio.

Demonstrations take place on Saturdays and Sundays from noon–3 pm.
