What's Included

Ahh, the natural world – a canvas of beauty that has enchanted artists since the beginning of time! We will begin our artistic explorations by making paint using natural pigments to make our own pictographs, just as our ancestors did. Young artistes will have a chance to use the landscape for inspiration using watercolors and pastels. On Wednesday we will draw inspiration from Georgia O’Keeffe by studying her work and heading up to Abiqiu. We will then camp overnight at Abiquiu Lake and be inspired by the landscape of Ghost Ranch. We will cool off in Abiquiu Lake in between art sessions before heading home to Santa Fe to complete our plein-air art adventure!
