Visual and Performing Arts

At Aims, you can choose from a variety of visual and performing arts programs that will give you the skills you need for a fulfilling and successful career. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to paint, play an instrument or want to work on improving your public speaking skills, consider taking a class for fun. If you'd like to earn a bachelor's degree in the arts, you can earn a liberal arts degree with designation and your courses will transfer to any participating public four-year Colorado school. 

Art

Art classes at Aims introduce students to both studio and academic approaches to art. One can work with their hands while also engaging in analysis and criticism of works of art and architecture. Whether exploring for personal interest or pursuing a career in the arts, Aims provides a solid foundation in the skills it takes to make and enjoy works of art.

Music surrounds us every day. It's an art form that can teach us, move us and bring us together. The Aims music program will give you the opportunity to explore and learn in a friendly environment. We want to share our love for music and help you build the skills you'll need for a successful career in this rewarding industry.

We offer an associate of arts degree with a music emphasis, but you don’t need to declare a music major to take private lessons or sign up for classes. All of our instructors have extensive experience in both teaching and performing, and we welcome all styles of music.
