Retablos – G200745

Paint a narrative story – devotional, personal, political, social- inspired by the Mexican folk art tradition of retablo. Participants will summarize their stories, practice drawing and composition, and mix acrylics and other mediums to paint on metal panels.

This workshop is part of Family Week. In the mornings, adults will choose one of several mini-workshops (note second choice on registration form), while younger family members will participate in youth activities. Ranch evenings will be a patchwork of family fun. There will a movie night (with popcorn), a scavenger hunt, a campfire and a concert at the end of the week.

Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • 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
    • 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 in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two 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.
