Inspiration From & Immersion into the Landscape of Ghost Ranch & Northern New Mexico as Painted by Georgia O’Keeffe – G21SW0122WI

Open to New Mexico residents and out-of-state residents who have quarantined in NM for 14 days prior to arrival at the ranch.

We will explore Ghost Ranch and the surrounding area where Georgia O’Keeffe lived, walked and painted seeking familiarity with the land and inspiration to apply to our work.  Through a series of progressive sketching exercises taught by Carol Ho, you will isolate the details of the landscape and then refine your approach to eliminate all but the essential elements. This class will involve walking, plein air and studio sketching, journal reflections and (weather and Covid permitting) field trips to the White Place and the Chama River overlook.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

In-person workshops begin with check-in at 3:00 p.m. and a ranch orientation in the evening on the first date listed for the course and end at 10:00 a.m. with checkout on the last date listed.

Virtual workshops will have a varied schedule that is identified within each workshop description.

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • During Covid-19 periods, all lodging types will be single occupancy at no additional charge. Of course, you can share a room with a spouse, partner, family or other person that shares your full-time residence.

StandardTimes:

  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?

Private refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy

  • During Covid-19, all rooms will have a private bath. Semi-private and Communal/dorm types will be assigned a bathroom for each person.
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two adjoining rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
