The Georgia O’Keeffe Immersion: Walking, Writing and Reflection in O’Keeffe’s Footsteps – G201111

Spend a few days immersed in the environment that inspired Georgia O’Keeffe: walk the land she loved and painted, reflect upon the quiet beauty and record your observations in a series of writing exercises. This class is held in a restricted area of the ranch, in sight of Georgia O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch home, Rancho de los Burros. Your instructor facilitates your experience through an exploration of the land, discussion of O’Keeffe’s life and examination of her writings and paintings. Because of the unique aspects of this immersion, all participants will be based at Casa del Sol.
This retreat takes place at Casa del Sol, away from the main ranch, which provides quiet and safe space for work that engages spirit and focus, dedicated to deep spiritual and artistic contemplation.
Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What day/time does the workshop start and end?

 Workshops always 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..

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.
